Department of Mathematical Science, Durham University, UK

Contact : Sebastien Destercke


Duration: 2 months (May/June 2014)
This stay had two main goals, the first of which was to pursue ongoing scientific collaborations with Matthias Troffaes and Frank Coolen, who are highly recognized researchers in the field of imprecise probabilities.
The second goal was to see if establishing long-term collaboration with the two laboratories was possible.
Indeed, some applications (e.g., agronomical crop systems and power grids) in which the department of mathematical science is involved are strongly linked to systems of systems. Overall, the first goal was reached, resulting in submitted papers, and further efforts will be needed to identify possible cooperations on a laboratory-scale. One step towards this identification is the possible invitation of Matthias Troffaes or Frank Coolen through LABEX funds.
