Online workshop: Mean Field Games and related fields

Description:This workshop will introduce participants to the theory of Mean Field Games and will lay out various research interests in the field. Mean Field Games model the dynamics of a large number of competing and rational agents. Assumed undistinguishable,  the agents seek to minimize an individual cost which depends on their over statistical distribution.  This

Postponed – Workshop on Integrable Systems and Orthogonal Polynomials – Numerical and Analytical Perspectives

Dates: 27 April to 1 May 2020 Organisers: Prof. Kerstin Jordaan (UNISA) and Prof. Peter Clarkson (University of Kent) Description: This workshop will focus on the relationship between integrable systems, in particular the Painleve equations and discrete Painleve equations, and orthogonal polynomials from both numerical and analytical perspectives. The Painleve equations, continuous and discrete, are
