LMS Research School in 2019: Mathematics of Climate; University of Reading; 
8-12 July 2019
The London Mathematical Society (LMS) is pleased to announce the next LMS 
Research School in 2019: Mathematics of Climate. Research lying at the 
intersection between mathematics and geoscience has been gaining more and more 
prominence in recent years, e.g. the worldwide Year of Mathematics for Planet 
Earth 2013 which incited a lot of activities. The Planet Earth is an excellent 
example of a forced, dissipative non-equilibrium system dominated by nonlinear 
processes and featuring multi-scale interactions. The challenges posed by this 
system have been and will be an inspiration for mathematicians and 
geoscientists alike. The synergy between mathematics and geoscience is 
exemplified by the scientific research areas like chaos theory, fractals, 
extreme events, and data assimilation, which stem or essentially developed 
through such an interaction. More recently, interdisciplinary exchange with 
geosciences has led to important advances in further crossover areas such as 
geometrical mechanics and optimal transport theory with geophysical fluid 
dynamics, coarse graining and model reduction techniques.
This School aims to educate and motivate young talented PhD students and early 
career scientists through three specialist lecture courses (supplemented by 
tutorials) and guest lectures that will provide a panorama of some of the most 
promising research areas within this interdisciplinary field. The school is 
organised in partnership with the London Mathematical Society and with the 
support of the EPSRC-funded CDT Mathematics of Planet Earth (Imperial/Reading)
– Course 1: Hakima Bessaih (University of Wyoming): Random vortex methods for 
3D fluids
– Course 2: Alberto Carrassi (NERSC, Norway): Mathematical Theory of Data 
Assimilation with Applications
– Course 3: Darryl Holm (Imperial College, London): Variational principles for 
Stochastic Fluid Dynamics
Guest Lectures:
– Beatrice Pelloni (Heriot-Watt): Mathematical aspects of the semigeostrophic 
– Peter Ashwin (Exeter): Response of the Pleistocene ice-ages to astronomical 
Course 1: Giulia Carigi (Reading); Course 2: Colin Grudzien (Assistant 
Professor of Statistics, University of Nevada, Reno); Course 3: Erwin Luesink

LMS Research Schools aim to provide training for young researchers in core 
areas of mathematics.  Students and post-docs can meet a number of leading 
experts in the topic as well as other young researchers working in related 
areas. The LMS is the UK’s learned society for mathematics. Registered charity
