Brunel University London Maths Department wins funding to host London Mathematical Society Lecture Series

Yuliya Mishura

Maths Department lecturer Dr Elena Boguslavskaya has won funding that will enable Brunel University London to host a prestigious LMS Invited Lecture Series in 2020. 

The annual Invited Lecturers Series, sponsored by the London Mathematical Society, aim to bring a distinguished overseas mathematician to the United Kingdom to present a small course of about ten lectures spread over a week. Each course of Invited Lectures is on a major field of current mathematical research, and is instructional in nature, being directed both at graduate students beginning research and at established mathematicians who wish to learn about a field outside their own research specialism. 

The lecture series will take place at Brunel University London's campus between March 30th to 3rd April 2020, and will be led by invited lectuer Professor Yulia Mishura from the University of Kyiv. 

'It’s a huge opportunity for visibility,' Dr Boguslavskaya tells me. 'As a result of this lecture series,  a book of lectures will be published by the London Mathematical Society. Fractional calculus is a hot topic right now. The term fractional is used differently in different areas. These lectures will show the connections between fractional calculus and fractional stochastic calculus. The lectures aim to clarify the way the term is currently used.' 

Professor Mishura will be leading lectures on the topic of 'Fractional Calculus and Fractional Stochastic Calculus with Applications.' This is her second visit to Brunel. She came here several years as a visitor for a number of weeks. Once that funding had been secured Elena approached her to come back and Professor Mishura's reaction was very positive.

'We're very lucky to have her as she's a leading specialist,' Dr Boguslavskaya explains. 'She's a prolific writer who has published several textbooks. She decided that this was an opportunity for her to share her knowledge about this popular topic. The connections between fractional calculus and fractional stochastic calculus need clarification.' 

This workshop and lecture series is aimed at a broad mathematical audience interested in working with long- and short-memory processes. In particular it will be beneficial for PhD students. It will be accompanied by exercise sessions.
