Our 2014 Intensive Programme (IP) in MErQs (Modelling Earthquakes) involves a set of short courses and seminars addressed to MSc and PhD students.
The programme will revolve around applied mathematics viewed as an interdisciplinary area at the interface with engineering, economy, life and social sciences. It will cover several applied topics including models for opinion formation, individual based simulations, modeling earthquakes. We will be addressing different methodologies, such as the analysis of partial differential equations, numerical calculus and simulations, stochastic calculus and kinetic modelling. MErQs IP 2014 aims also to have a strong social impact for the Abruzzi Region and L’Aquila, which are still suffering from the consequences of the 2009 earthquake.
The programme will be hosted by the D.I.S.I.M. (Department of Information Engineering, Computer Sciences and Mathematics) of the University of L'Aquila in the period June 23 - July 4, 2014.
All the students who wish to join our summer school must be currently enrolled at a MSc or PhD course in one of the following disciplines:
- applied mathematics,
- or similar subjects.
