Nonlinear dynamics and stochastic methods: from neuroscience to other
biological applications

March 10-12, 2014

Pittsburgh, PA

This conference on nonlinear dynamics and stochastic methods will bring
together a mix of senior and junior scientists to report on theoretical
methods that proved successful in mathematical neuroscience, and to
encourage their dissemination and application to modeling in computational
medicine and other biological fields. *This conference will coincide with a
celebration of G. Bard Ermentrout's sixtieth birthday. *The invited
speakers will present on mathematical topics such as dynamical systems,
multi-scale modeling, phase resetting curves, pattern formation and
statistical methods. The mathematical tools will be demonstrated in the
context of the following main topics: i) Rhythms in biological systems; ii)
The geometry of systems with multiple time scales; iii) Pattern formation
in biological systems; iv) Stochastic models: statistical methods and mean
field approximations.

The conference runs from March 10-12, 2014 at the University of Pittsburgh,
Pittsburgh, PA. Travel support may become available for young
investigators. Currently, this conference is partial funded by the
Mathematical Biosciences Institute and the University of Pittsburgh.
