Statistics and Mathematical Modelling in Combination

Contributed talks and invited lectures

Contributed talks may relate to but are not limited to the following topics:
  1. Model identification, where statistical methods are used to deduce the coefficients of differential equations from a set of output data.
  2. Inverse problems to determine transport coefficients in diffusion models from noisy data.
  3. Evolution equations with uncertain model parameters.
  4. Transport in random media.
  5. Partial differential equations for pricing financial derivatives based on fluctuating stocks.
  6. Stationary distributions of ergodic dynamical systems.
  7. Path integrals to represent stochastic dynamical systems.
  8. Boltzmann equation based on statistical dynamics.
  9. Fractional-order differential equations to represent transport in fractal media.
  10. Modelling real ecosystems.
  11. Modelling complex economic systems.
  12. Statistical change point identification for switching dynamical models.
  13. Problems in the probabilistic interpretation of deterministic Schroedinger equation.

This conference will take place on 16-18 November 2022

It will precede the biennial Forum Mathematics for Industry FMfI2022 to be held at the same location 21-24 November 2022. For more information about the Forum visit

Both the Conference and Forum will presented in hybrid mode. Attendees are encouraged to consider attending both events to receive the maximum benefit and in-person attendance is also encouraged.

See below for registration closing dates.


Deterministic modellers and statisticians have a lot to be gained by working as a team in which both types of approaches are used. The combination of statistics and classical dynamics has long been a fertile field, tracing back to statistical mechanics from the end of the 19th century and stochastic differential equations from the 1920s. The need to combine the two modelling approaches has never been greater and neither has the opportunity for affordable high-performance computation. During the COVID-19 pandemic, agreement has been found between agent-based models and differential compartment equations in modelling infection numbers. Each approach gives confidence to the other, and this suggests scope for new hybrid models.

Other relevant areas include:

  • Model identification from a set of output data
  • Inverse problems to determine transport coefficients from noisy data
  • Evolution equations with uncertain model parameters
  • Transport in random media
  • PDE for financial derivatives based on fluctuating stocks
  • Stationary distributions of ergodic dynamical systems
  • Boltzmann equation based on statistical dynamics
  • Transport in fractal media
  • Complex systems in ecology and economics
  • Probabilistic interpretation of deterministic Schroedinger equation
