Past events

Topological patterns in magnetic materials

13 – 14 January 2022, online via Zoom

Organiser: R. Moser

Continuum theories for (anti-)ferromagnetic materials, such as micromagnetics, need to account for a variety of patterns such as domain walls, magnetic bubbles, vortices, Skyrmions, etc. Often these are modelled by PDEs with interesting structures such as singularities. The main focus of this workshop are patterns with nontrivial topology and/or caused by topological effects, where physics, PDE theory, and topology interact with each other.

Recent advances in the calculus of variations in L

13 – 14 July 2022, University of Reading

Organiser: N. Katzourakis

Variational problems involving the L-norm have attracted significant attention since the pioneering work of G. Aronsson in the 1960s. Typically they do not arise as fundamental physical laws, but appear instead in design and optimisation problems, especially when it is does not suffice to prescribe and minimise just the average of a quantity. Apart from being of fundamental analytical interest, they are very useful, and sometimes pivotal, for applications. In this event we bring together experts in the field, early career researchers and research students to discuss the latest developments in the area.
