The 2014 International Congress of Mathematicians was held in Seoul, Korea, August 13-21. Timo Seppäläinen was an invited speaker in the Probability and Statistics Section.

The research of Fabian Waleffe has led researchers in new directions when it comes to studying turbulence in fluids. This article, (MacKenzie, Dana, "To Predict Turbulence, Just Count the Puffs", Nautilus, Nautilus Ventures LLC, July 3,2014. http://nautil.us/issue/15/turbulence/to-predict-turbulence-just-count-the-puffs) discusses new experiments and understanding of the onset of turbulence in pipe flow that built on Dr. Waleffe’s discoveries of traveling wave solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations.
All about the calendar
The Math Department integrates its posted event calendar with the UW's event calendar.
It is posted automatically to our webpage and onto the digital display in the 1st floor lobby.
Events are periodically "harvested" from seminar information pages and added to the UW Math Department calendar.
If there is an event we may have missed, or you'd like added, please fill out this form.
