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 by July 15 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. Poisson-Nernst-Planck Systems
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)
Prof. Hao Wu (Fudan University)
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)

NCTS Summer School on Kerr Geometry
 

Please note that Registration is Required by July 19 at http://goo.gl/BMa0kT .

Date
August 17 - 21, 2015

Venue
Room 102, Astro-Math Building, NTU

Description
The focused theme of this summer school is the Kerr spacetime. Kerr spacetime is the unique explicitly defined model of the gravitational field of a rotating star. The spacetime is fully revealed only when the star collapses, leaving a black hole-- otherwise the bulk of the star blocks exploration. The qualitative character of Kerr spacetime depends on its mass and its rate of rotation. It is the most important spacetime in general relativity with very rich geometry. We plan to cover various aspects of the Kerr geometry.

Lecturers:

Po-Ning Chen (Columbia University)
Pei-Ken Hung (Columbia University)
Mu-Tao Wang (Columbia University)
Ye-Kai Wang (Michigan State University)
