Advanced Mathematical Sciences C (FY2011)

Mathematics Everywhere

CONTENTS
 During the last 30 years, the establishment of communication channels between methods and applications has been the driving force of a big part of the scientific and technological progress which we observe in our daylife. The aim of this lectures is to reinforce awareness about the increasing role of Mathematical Methods and Tools for the design of complex products or protocols in various areas such as Material Science, Finance, Biology, Medicine, etc.. The increased attention of Industry to the preservation of the environment and to biomedical problems, related to the working conditions or to the health of the customer, forms also a strong link between Industry and Biomedicine. In this framework, Mathematics, which is often able to face problems coming from different environments with similar tools, could be used as a common language.
PLANS
 The lecture series will be given in an omnibus style by internationally top leading researchers. They will show how mathematics is used in various fields and explain specific phenomena seen in their studies.
