Within 2013 several scientific activities will be devoted to mathematical researches for the study of planet Earth. The overall organization is called “Mathematics for Planet Earth 2013”, hereafter MPE2013. The topics touched by MPE2013 concern different fields: impacts of dangerous asteroids, safeguard from space debris, climatic changes, monitoring geological events, organization of transports, study of traffic, control of epidemic, global economy, etc.
In all these fields the mathematical studies play a relevant role as a tool for the analysis of specific topics and as an ingredient of multidisciplinary problems.
MPE2013 will provide a very interesting activity, including workshops, research groups, schools, popularization, etc. Several outstanding institution joined this initiative. INdAM contributes with the organization of the workshop “Mathematical Models and Methods for Planet Earth”, Roma (Italy), 27-28-29 May 2013, INdAM.
The main themes of the workshop are the following:
- celestial mechanics
- safeguard from potentially hazardous asteroids
- detection and monitoring of space debris
- large-scale oceanography
- monitoring of tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes
- dynamics of populations in ecology
- climate variations
- health care
- social organization
- analysis of the global economy
- socio-economic systems
- economic and financial systems
