The University of Strathclyde SIAM student chapter are organising an event as part of the Engage at Strathclyde week, which will take place on May 3rd 2016, from 2-6pm within the Scottish Universities Insight Institute. The event will showcase just a few applications of mathematics and statistics in industry. There will be three featured speakers: Dr Douglas McLean of Moody’s Analytics; Professor David Anderson of the University of Wisconsin; and last but by no means least, Professor Nicholas J. Higham of The University of Manchester and President Elect of SIAM.
Dr McLean will be discussing an application to finance, specifically modelling operational risk within a copular framework. Professor Anderson will be presenting on distributions for stochastically modelled biochemical reaction systems. Finally, Professor Higham will be talking about challenges in multivalued matrix functions.
Following the presentations, there will be a drinks reception to allow attendees the opportunity to discuss their research with like-minded people.
