Speakers: Jesus Rogel-Salazar

The use of simulations in physics is a very well established practice and it can be a very useful and powerful tool. The development of computer models requires a simplified and stylised version of the target system, taking into account the aspect we are most interested in.

In the vast majority of cases, models are backed by theories; what is then the relationship between model and theory? In this talk we will address this question and provide some examples from physics and related areas.

Dr Jesus Rogel-Salazar is a principal data scientist for Dow Jones and a member of the School of Physics Astronomy and Mathematics at the University of Hertfordshire. He has worked as senior lecturer in mathematics as well as a consultant in the financial industry since 2006. His interests include mathematical modelling and optimisation in a wide range of applications, including optics and finance.
