Inaugural Professorial Lecture – Professor Boris Baeumer

The power of the limit of a power

About Professor Boris Baeumer's research

Boris is a mathematician working on problems ranging from within the applied sciences to exploring properties of solutions to abstract stochastic differential equations with memory. Collaborating with a research group at the Desert Research Institute in Nevada, he is exploring better ways to forecast how particles move in groundwater; collaborating with researchers in Germany and Hungary he is developing the theory that allows for a deeper understanding of non-local differential equations and their connection to stochastic processes. This Marsden funded research is aiming to ultimately provide better models for scientists to make more accurate forecasts in systems where rare extreme events are driving the system; whether they are fast underground pathways in groundwater, weather events driving erosion or seed dispersal, or distant travel spreading a virus. Boris’ research also includes finding efficient numerical algorithms to approximate the solutions of the derived systems of non-local or fractional differential equations.

This lecture will be followed with light refreshments, tea, coffee & juice.
