Podcast: Episode 27 – Oliver Jensen, British Applied Mathematics Colloquium 2009

These are the show notes for episode 27 of the Travels in a Mathematical World podcast. 27 is the first composite number not divisible by any of its digits. More about 27 from Number Gossip.

In April was the British Applied Mathematics Colloquium (BAMC) 2009, the premier annual national meeting of applied mathematics in the UK, at the School of Mathematical Sciences, University of Nottingham. Immediately following this, I sat down with Professor Oliver Jensen, Co-Chair of the BAMC for a retrospective on the conference and what work is current in applied mathematics.

Oliver spoke about the Meet the Mathematicians outreach day connected to the conference and the following talks. All the talks at Meet the Mathematicians were videoed and will appear in time on the website at

Oliver also spoke briefly about each of the plenary lectures at the BAMC. Click on the speakers name to find out more about their work.

Oliver also mentioned the mini-symposia:

  1. Quantum Chaos & Disordered Systems
  2. Scientific Computation
  3. Cells and Networks
  4. Stochastic Systems and Uncertainty
  5. Approaches to Nanofluidics
  6. Nonlinear Optics and Optical Coherent Structures.
  7. Delay and Difference Equations
  8. Regenerative Medicine
  9. Mathematics Education
  10. Solid Mechanics
