Applied Maths Seminar: Krause -- Pattern Formation via Blackboards and Web Browsers

Dear all, 

Our upcoming AM seminar is held Wed 14 June at 1pm in F11 Chemistry Lecture Theatre 4.
Our speaker is Andrew Krause (Durham).  

Talk details follow below: 

Title: Pattern Formation via Blackboards and Web Browsers 

Abstract: Motivated by a range of problems in embryology and ecology, I will present
recent extensions to Turing’s classical reaction-diffusion paradigm for pattern
formation.  This will start by reviewing reaction-diffusion systems and their analysis
via classical linear instability theory, followed by a range of generalizations to more
realistic scenarios of reaction-transport models in complex domains.  Such extensions
are motivated by the evolving and heterogeneous landscapes of pattern formation in
nature.  Throughout this discussion, numerical simulations will play key roles in
validating and extending the near-equilibrium theory.  To drive home this last point, I
will present VisualPDE, a new web-based simulator for lightning-fast interactive
explorations of these systems.  Such accessible numerical tools are invaluable for
rapidly prototyping models of complex biological phenomena.  Importantly, accessible
simulations underscore the need for sound theory which goes beyond phenomenological
modelling in biology.
