Iberian Strings 2017
2017-01-16 — 2017-01-20

The Iberian Strings 2017 meeting is the eighth meeting of the Iberian Strings series. These meetings bring together a large part of the string theory community of Spain and Portugal and aim at discussing recent advances in the field of strings and branes.


Call for Applications — Hylef Project Doctoral and Postdoctoral Grants
2016-12-22 — 2017-02-15

The research program on Hydrodynamic Limits and Equilibrium Fluctuations: universality from stochastic systems, coordinated by Patrícia Gonçalves, invites applications for doctoral and postdoctoral positions for research in Mathematics / Probability at the Center for Mathematical Analysis, Geometry, and Dynamical Systems of the Instituto Superior Técnico at the University of Lisbon in Portugal.

Particle Systems and PDEs V
2016-11-28 — 2016-11-30

The idea of the meeting is to get together researchers from two different areas of mathematics, namely Particle Systems and Partial Differential Equations, and to present recent scientific results in both areas.

Mathematics doctoral defense

Sinan Eden, supervised by Sílvia Nogueira da Rocha Ravasco dos Anjos (adviser), defended his thesis The Homotopy Lie Algebra of Symplectomorphism Groups of 3-Fold Blow-Ups of $(S^2\times S^2, \sigma_{\operatorname{std}}\oplus \sigma_{\operatorname{std}})$, on November 21, 2016, at Anfiteatro Pa3, Pavilhão de Matemática, Instituto Superior Técnico, and was awarded a doctoral degree in Mathematics.

ERC Grant awarded to Patrícia Gonçalves

Patrícia Gonçalves, researcher at CAMGSD and an Associate Professor at the Instituto Superior Técnico since May 2016, has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant of 1,180,000€ for 5 years. This is the first time the European Research Council has granted this award to a mathematician working in Portugal.

The funded research project aims at characterizing the universality of the macroscopic behavior of some physical systems from underlying microscopic stochastic dynamics, by deriving the macroscopic laws, namely, (stochastic) partial differential equations, which govern the space-time evolution of the thermodynamic quantities of those physical systems.
