Pedro Fontoura Correia de Oliveira, supervised by José António Maciel Natário (adviser), João Lopes Costa (co-adviser), defended his thesis Cosmic No-Hair for Spherically Symmetric Black Hole Spacetimes, at Anfiteatro Pa3, Pavilhão de Matemática, Instituto Superior Técnico, and was awarded a doctoral degree in Mathematics.

Advances in Applied Mathematical Analysis and Numerical Methods: Ten Years of CoLab

The UT Austin | Portugal CoLab Program in Applied Mathematics has been running for 10 years now. It has been remarkably successful in promoting research collaboration and providing mobility opportunities for faculty members, as well as in hosting doctoral and post-doctoral students, especially in the field of applied PDEs.

Mini-course on Hydrodynamic limit of particle systems on resistance spaces

The goal of the mini-course by Joe Chen is to describe the recent progress on establishing scaling limits of many-particle systems on state spaces which are bounded in the resistance metric, a.k.a. "resistance spaces." These include trees, fractals, and random graphs arising from critical percolation.
