NOUVELLES DATES - Mathematics of Climate Science


Kigali, Rwanda


28/06/2021 - 09/07/2021


The school aims at introducing graduate students and young researchers to the mathematic of climate science. Lectures will cover key topics in the field focusing on their mathematical complexity and dimension. Climate science is genuinely interdisciplinary and this is reflected in the breath of topics offered in the school: predictability, data assimilation, climate prediction, climate sensitivity and thermodynamics. The mathematics to address and understand these problems will be the characteristic of the school and will include dynamical system, statistics, numer­ical methods, statistical mechanics and linear algebra. The lectures will start by presenting the phys­ical concrete challenge and then will focus on the mathematical tools and concept used to solve them. At the same time, there will be tutorials with practical problems to be solved by the students under
the mentors' guidance.
