James Campbell will be presenting his work on Markov chain modelling of the board game Snakes and Ladders at the Djangoweekend conference: https://djangoweekend.org/event/pythons-ladders/.
The School of Mathematics has sponsored three students to attend the 'Django Weekend Cardiff' conference. The three selected students where picked based on their performance in individual coursework for the Computing for Mathematics module:
- Alex Carney wrote about fractals;
- James Campbell wrote about Markov Chains and Snakes and Ladders;
- Matthew Lunn wrote about the prime number theorem.
All of their work involved not only writing about the chosen topic but also using Sage to code it.
The School of Mathematics is pleased to announce the approval of a Fulbright Specialist proposal designed to raise the awareness of hypergeometric function theory at Cardiff University. Prof Mark W. Coffey (Colorado School of Mines) will present a series of introductory lectures across two visits at the School of Mathematics. The first visit (26th May 2014 – 15th June 2014) will lay the curricular ground work at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels in the theory of hypergeometric functions. The impetus of the second visit (25th May 2015 – 14th June 2015) will be to develop an understanding and usage of hypergeometric functions in harmonic analysis and analytic number theory at the graduate level. More details will be posted nearer the first series of lectures in May 2014.
The School runs a full range of events and seminars throughout the year:
