    Some people seem to think that it is cool to admit that they are not good at maths. But University of Leicester Vice Chancellor Paul Boyle takes this to a new level by trying to destroy the Universities Maths department.

    No to compulsory redundancies – No confidence in the vice-chancellor

  • Another accepted paper, and this was an interesting one. In a certain class of systems the approach proposed here enables us to analyze the dynamics of very large networks, and identify structures on all scales (!) that cause instability.

    The central theme of complex systems research is understanding the emergent macroscopic properties of a system from the interplay of its microscopic constituents. Here, we ask what conditions a complex network of microscopic dynamical units has to meet to permit stationary macroscopic dynamics, ...

    In epidemiological modelling, dynamics on networks, and in particular adaptive and heterogeneous networks have recently received much interest. Here we present a detailed analysis of a previously proposed model that combines heterogeneity in the individuals with adaptive rewiring of the network ...

    We introduce a model of adaptive temporal networks whose evolution is regulated by an interplay between node activity and dynamic exchange of information through links. We study the model by using a master equation approach. Starting from a homogeneous initial configuration, ...
