Mon 17 December 2012

Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences

From forecasting hurricanes to harnessing wave energy, leading mathematicians, scientists and policy makers will discuss how mathematical models and statistical analysis help us to predict, manage impact, exploit and communicate about nature’s climatic extremes, and how they help Government to anticipate health-related consequences of natural catastrophic events and insurance companies to assess the financial risk of such occurrences.

Speakers include Prof David Spiegelhalter, Prof Lord Julian Hunt, Prof Virginia Murray, Mr Rowan Douglas and Prof Rod Rainey.
