info  Electrostatics in Protein Structure and Action Prof. Huan-Xiang Zhou Jan 24th, 2018 / 16:15 ECTS-Points: 0
Abstract, registration & information:
This talk will present a unifying theme among the various effects of protein charges and polar groups. Simple models will be used to illustrate basic ideas about electrostatic interactions in proteins, and these ideas in turn will be used to elucidate the roles of electrostatic interactions in protein structure, folding, binding, condensation, and related biological functions. In particular, I will examine how charged side chains are spatially distributed in various types of proteins and how electrostatic interactions affect thermodynamic and kinetic properties of proteins. Both important historical developments and recent experimental and theoretical advances in quantifying electrostatic contributions of proteins will be highlighted.

info  Uncertainty Quantification: Mathematical and Computational Aspects Prof. Elisabeth Ullmann Nov 15th, 2017 / 16:15 ECTS-Points: 0
Abstract, registration & information:
Uncertainty quantification (UQ) is a fast growing research area which deals with the impact of parameter, data and model uncertainties in complex systems. We focus on models which are based on partial differential equations (PDEs) with random inputs. For deterministic PDEs there are many classical analytical results and numerical tools available. The treatment of PDEs with random inputs, however, requires novel ideas and tools. We illustrate the mathematical and algorithmic challenges of UQ for Bayesian inverse problems arising from geotechnical engineering and medicine, and an optimal control problem with uncertain PDE constraints.
