Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Partial differential equations in the social and life science: emergent challenges in modeling, analysis, and computations" workshop from March 31st to April 5th, 2013.


The year 2013 has been deemed a special year for {it the Mathematics of Planet Earth.}
Partial differential equations have historically played a major role in the modeling, analysis and computation of complex systems surrounding many aspects of {it planet earth}. This workshop will focus on the challenges and advancements in mathematical modeling -with partial differential equations- for applications in the social and life sciences such as opinion formations, population dynamics, traffic patterns, behavioral analysis in financial markets, environmental economics, neuroscience and crime spots detection.




The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
