APCMI 2022

Statistics and Mathematical
Modelling in Combination

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. A link with more information about the Forum will appear here soon.

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.
