CoCalc at the SIAM Conference on Dynamical Systems in Portland, Oregon!
What a fantastic journey it’s been! We recently attended the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) conference on Dynamical Systems in the alluring city of Portland, Oregon. Our team at CoCalc: Collaborative Calculation and Data Science by SageMath, Inc. was thrilled to participate and let the math community know more about our innovative platform.
In this post, we’ll share a glimpse of the exciting talks held during the conference, which we had the pleasure of attending.
The conference was filled with enlightening discussions, led by some of the most prominent researchers in the field. Among the thought-provoking topics we heard:
Using Dynamical Systems Tools to Incorporate Diverse Sensing into Models of Collective Motion
Speaker: Alethea Barbaro, Delft University of Technology, Netherlands.
Perhaps one of the day’s most captivating discussions, this session delved into the world of animal motion, exploring how different types of sensing impact collective behavior.
Determining Spectral Stability via the Maslov Index and Conjugate Points
Speaker: Alexandria Volkening, Purdue University, U.S.
Alexandria Volkening unveiled structures and tools enabling us to efficiently and rigorously determine spectral stability.
The Remarkable Accuracy of a Pendulum Clock
Speaker: Hugh Hunt, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom
Who could forget the presentation on the mesmerizing accuracy of a pendulum clock–and its history through time?
Animal Behaviors in Response to Fluid Instabilities
Speaker: Sunghwan “Sunny” Jung, Cornell University, U.S.
Sunny Jung’s fascinating exploration of animal behaviors in light of fluid instabilities offered us new insight into this essential relationship.
And many more!
We want to express our gratitude to all the speakers for their invaluable insights and the depth of knowledge they brought to the field.
