XXVI International Fall Workshop on Geometry and Physics
2017-09-04 — 2017-09-07
The Fall Workshops on Geometry and Physics have been held yearly since 1992, and bring together Spanish and Portuguese geometers and physicists, along with an ever increasing number of participants from outside the Iberian peninsula. The meetings aim to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas between researchers from different backgrounds, and always include a substantial number of enthusiastic young researchers amongst the participants.
Global Portuguese Mathematicians
2017-07-13 — 2017-07-14
The Conference Global Portuguese Mathematicians aims at bringing together portuguese mathematicians working in different parts of the world. Of course, everyone is welcome, in particular, those working (or planning to work) in Portugal.
Workskop on Operator Theory, Complex Analysis, and Applications 2017 / WOTCA 2017
2017-07-03 — 2017-07-06
The Workskop on Operator Theory, Complex Analysis, and Applications 2017 / WOTCA 2017 will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, on 3-6 July 2017.
It aims to bring together researchers working in Operator Theory, Complex Analysis, and their applications, namely in Mathematical Physics, and to create an opportunity to highlight the current state of the art in these fields, present open problems and engage in fruitful discussions.
This meeting follows the line of five previous workshops, WOTCA 2010, WOTCA 2012, 2-Day OTCA 2013, WOTCA 2014, WOTCA 2016.
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.
