Multidimensional Visibility Graphs and Submonolayer Deposition


Deadline:1 December 2020 Opens:6 July 2020

The project deals with VISIBILITY GRAPHS. It will involve numerical work as well as methods of network and graph theory, primarily spectral analysis of adjacency matrices and Laplacians of the visibility graphs, and centrality and communicability indices of these graphs.

Dynamics of Self-Rewetting Droplets


Opens:2 March 2020

There is currently great interest in self-rewetting fluids whose surface tension exhibits a local minimum with temperature. The aim of the project is bring new insight into the understanding of these novel fluids, and hence to harness the properties of droplets of such fluids in a range of technological applications.

Graph representations


Opens:31 March 2020

Graph representations became crucial with the advent of the computer era for storing graphs in computer memory. However, graph representations, e.g. those involving patterns in words, are also useful in solving problems on graphs as they may allow transferring a graph problem to that on other objects hence solving it.

Uniform Distribution of Resources within a City


Opens:31 March 2020

To ensure that a person taking any route in a city has the same experience, e.g. seeing a city map, we need methods to cover the routes without over-deploying resources. We will use tools in Graph Theory and Combinatorics to optimally deploy resources across a city to have maximum effect on those navigating it.

Computational Fluid Dynamics of Liquid Crystals


Opens:6 April 2020

Liquid crystals are fluids that show local orientational order. The interplay between orientation and flow in these substances is very intricate and can lead to interesting macroscopic phenomena, many of which are not yet fully understood. This project will study such phenomena using mathematical and numerical models.

Monotone Grid Classes of Permutations


Opens:7 April 2020

The goal of this project is the exact enumeration of classes of permutations that can be plotted on monotone curves in grids. At present, an effective procedure is only known for so-called “skinny” classes. The general problem is challenging because permutations have multiple ways of being plotted on the curves.

Spectral biclustering


Opens:1 March 2020

Effective methods have been derived for dividing a network into coherent communities using spectral information obtained from the network. Biclustering has received far less attention. We will develop new methods and analysis for this problem, starting from recent work using a bistochastic representation of a network.

Principal Permutation Classes


Opens:1 September 2020

The goal of this project is to explore fundamental structural questions concerning sets of permutations that avoid a single pattern. The study of these combinatorial objects was initiated by Donald Knuth in the 1960s when he investigated which permutations could be sorted by being passed through a stack.
