How do viruses spread or how to model liquidity? Among many other fundamental topics in everyday life or high-level mathematics, this question was in focus at the Workshop on Differential Equations at CEU April 4-6. The workshop grew out of the School in Differential Equations of Professor Gheorghe Morosanu, former head of CEU’s Department of Mathematics and its Applications.
Gabor Pete of the Alfred Renyi Institute of Mathematics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, who's also a visiting professor at CEU's Department of Mathematics and Its Applications, won a European research Council consolidator grant to carry out new research on noise sensitivity. The phenomenon that Pete will study originates in computer science, with applications from computational complexity theory to the design of computer chips.
