The workshop will bring together people from applied mathematics, dynamical systems, condensed matter physics and
statistical physics. The theme are fluctuations far from
equilibrium, particularly in stochastic dynamics. A focus will be on
so-called fluctuation relations,
which generalize the second
law of thermodynamics to small systems. They have been found to
be generally valid very far from equilibrium. This active,
recent topic of research will be discussed both from a theoretical and
from an experimental point of view. Cross-links to large deviation
theory and to anomalous stochastic processes will be explored. Postdocs
and PhD students from different backgrounds are strongly encouraged
to participate. The talks will be of a respective introductory nature.
All talks will be held in seminar room M103 (first floor) of the Department of
Mathematics at Queen Mary University of London. The welcome and tea break will be in the common room next to M103.
Directions of how to get
there can be found
here. And here is a view of the School of Mathematics from Mile End Road.
ALL ARE WELCOME! Pre-registration is not necessary. For any further information please contact one of the
Programme (final): All talks are for 50 minutes with up to 10 minutes of discussion.
This is part of a series of
collaborative meetings held by the London Dynamical Systems Group
(LDSG) which consists of the Dynamical Systems groups at Imperial,
Queen Mary, Surrey and UCL, and which is supported by a Scheme 3 grant
from the London Mathematical Society.
