Powerpoint Intro to Potential Analysis
16 Sep 2015   Contributor(s):: Darren Anthony Marotta
A technique to detect the number of states in a geophysical system attained from recorded time series. Potential Analysis estimates the degree of a polynomial, which determines the number of states in the time series. Changes in the number of states represent bifurcations of the system.

Realistic modeling and analysis of synchronization dynamics in powergrid networks
08 May 2015   Contributor(s):: Takashi Nishikawa
An imperative condition for the functioning of a powergrid network is that its power generators remain synchronized. Disturbances can prompt desynchronization, which is a process that has been involved in large power outages. In this talk I will first give a comparative review of three leading...

Synchronization in power grid networks
07 May 2015   Contributor(s):: Suman Acharyya
This survey discusses Master Stability Function (MSF) analysis for determining stability of synchronization of coupled oscillators on network. In addition, we briefly discuss the derivation of the Swing equation that determine the dynamics of a node in power grid network, and...

Where's the Math in Climate Science?
09 Nov 2015   Contributor(s):: Christopher KRT Jones
Abstract: Climate science is dominated by the use of largescale models, of which there are only 30 or so around the world. It might then seem that the need for mathematics is limited to areas that directly support the operation of such models. I will explain, by digging into the way the models...
