Call for Research Pairs
 
NCTS welcomes small groups of researchers to apply for Research in Pairs program. A group may consist of two to four members, who must not be all affiliated with the same institution. Group members can spend two to four weeks in NCTS to conduct joint research intensively, in an inspiring environment to grow new ideas.

Applications from all mathematical areas are encouraged. NCTS provides office and all facilities needed, as well as an allowance of NTD 4,000 per day which is sufficient to cover accommodation and local expenses.

NCTS neighbors the NTU Department of Mathematics, and a mathematical library with very ample collections and e-journals is right next to it. With convenient transportation and hotels being within five minutes walk, NCTS could be in all aspects a fascinating place where one can enjoy his/her mathematical vacation.

For the application, please submit the joint project, curriculum vitae, and proposed dates of visit to ac@ncts.ntu.edu.tw.


NCTS Summer School: Modeling, Simulation and Analysis of Electrolytes
 

Please note that Registration is Required at http://goo.gl/mZKNZM.

Date
August 18 - September 2, 2015

Venue
Room 101, Astro-Math Building, NTU

Description
Electrolytes are solutions of acids, bases or salts containing free ions that make the substance electrically conductive. The study of electrolytes is important in biology, chemistry and physics. In this mini-course, we will introduce how to use mathematical analysis and numerical simulation to develop and justify mathematical models of electrolytes.

We will cover the following topics:

I. Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) Equations
II. High-Order Methods for Partial Differential Equations
III. Charge Conserving Poisson-Boltzmann Equations
IV. Physics and Application of Electrolyte in a Charged Nano Pore
V. Numerical Methods for Simulating Ion Flows in Electrolytes
VI. Molecular Dynamics Simulation and its Application

Lecturers:

Prof. Xianpeng Hu (City University of Hong Kong)
Dr. Misun Min (Argonne National Laboratory)
Prof. Chiun-Chang Lee (National Hsinchu University of Education)
Prof. Tzyy-Leng Horng (Feng Chia University)
Prof. Chun-Hao Teng (National Chung Hsing University)
Prof. Jung-Hsin Lin (Academia Sinica & National Taiwan University)
