Geometry, Stochastics & Dynamics

        Celebrating 20 years of UK-Japan Winter Schools

12- 16 September 2022

with public lectures at the Embassy of Japan


The UK-Japan Winter Schools have been held since 1999, held at both countries. For 20 years, the school brought together Japanese and UK scientists, in particular also young researchers and students from mathematics and mathematical physics, in a relaxing and stimulating atmosphere. Every year the focus was on a special topic. The celebration workshop, planned to be held in 2020 at the University of Warwick was delayed due to the pandemic, is now to be held at Imperial College London.

  The celebration conference has a wider scope incorporating several regularly occurring themes of the past schools: Geometry, Stochastic,  Dynamics, and  their interfaces. There will be longer overview talks exposing the latest research developments and open topics in the area of the speakers and their wider impact, together with shorter more focused talks highlighting the work of individual researchers from both countries, though still designed for a non-specialist audience. Finally there will also be public lectures at the Japanese Embassy.

Organisers: J├╝rgen Berndt - John Bolton - David Elworthy - Martin Guest - Xue-Mei Li - Yoshiaki Maeda
