"Kernels for sequentially ordered data" (Abstract
From 1st February 2016, Dr. Siekmann will be hosted for six months as a visiting scientist at the Felix Bernstein Institute for Mathematical Statistics in the Biosciences (FBMS). He will work on modelling stochastic mechanisms of signal transduction in human cells. Calcium plays a central role as a messenger in signal transduction. Calcium release from ion channels controls, for example, the heart beat and the initiation of action potentials in nerve cells. Before his return to Germany, Dr. Siekmann has worked for several years at the University of Auckland (New Zealand) and the University of Melbourne (Australia).
New Research Training Group 2088 by IMS and NAM:
Starting from 1 October 2015 the German Research Foundation DFG finances a new Research Training Group as a collaborative project of the Institute for Mathematical Stochastics and the Institute for Numerical and Applied Mathematics. The RTG with number 2088 carries the name „Discovering Structure in Complex Data: Statistics Meets Optimisation and Inverse Problems“. It is concerned with new mathematical concepts for the efficient classification and reconstruction of relevant structures in data. Six professors from each of the two institutes participate in a total of 13 projects.
