MaPSS: Maths Postgraduate Seminar Series: Alice Belliere -- Desynchronization of the Kuramoto model using the collective coordinates

Hello all, 

The next MaPSS talk of this semester will be at 17:00 on Mon 25th March in Carslaw 535.
We are lucky enough to have Alice Belliere from the University of Namur give a talk 
this week! And as always, it’s a great opportunity to meet fellow postgrads, listen to 
an interesting talk, and of course get some free pizza!

Speaker: Alice Belliere 

Title: Desynchronization of the Kuramoto model using the collective coordinates 

Abstract: We witness in our surrounding that populations of humans or atoms or else
animals are likely to synchronize their behaviour.  We think for example about the
neuronal synchronization in the brain.  The aim of this synchronization is performing
some actions like moving an arm.  The action wouldn’t be possible if the neurons
hadn’t synchronized such that the information can flow through the brain and reach
their purpose.  However, the synchronization of these systems is sometimes
counterproductive.  For example, the epileptic seizures are an over synchronization of
the neurons and the brain can’t turn off by itself the message sent to the muscles.
We will present the setup of a control in the Kuramoto model, model widely used for
neuronal systems.  That control, that we try to be as minimal as possible, should
desynchronize the oscillators.  Our approach is using the collective coordinates
framework.
