Summary: PhD-TW Colloquium

Speaker 1: Sid Visser
Modeling the Neocortex with Meso-scale
Models and Population Models
Models of the brain yield new physiological insights as well as a better understanding of the brain and
related disorders, e.g. epilepsy and Parkinson's disease. A large model, having a detailed description
of all neurons, is developed and numerically analyzed. Typical types of behavior, like oscillations and
travelling waves, are observed. A different model, consisting of two delayed differential equations with
two different delays, is derived that qualitatively captures the behavior of the detailed model. This model
is then analyzed by construction of a bifurcation diagram that provides new insights in the dependence
of both models on certain parameters.
Speaker 2: Bob Peeters
A Conservative Numerical Scheme for
Hydrostatic Flow in Isentropic Coordinates
Within this project we try to construct new numerical schemes that aim to improve current ensemble
forecasting models for climate. Most contemporary climate models conserve energy and potential vor-
ticity in the case of no forcing and dissipation. What's missing in most cases, however, is a consistent
