Event description
For Maths Week Scotland 2019, ICMS will host a public lecture - When Networks Go Bad

About this Event

As part of ICMS Maths Week Scotland 2019 celebrations, llze Ziedins (University of Auckland) will give a public lecture entitled

When networks go bad: queues, delays, and bottlenecks

Waiting for the lights to change, waiting for a doctor’s appointment, waiting for a webpage to download -- we all experience queues and delays every day. Why do queues form? And can we alleviate congestion?

We will look at examples ranging from ramp meters in traffic networks, to patient pathways and prioritisation in healthcare delivery, to illustrate ways in which queues can misbehave, and discuss some recent results on how to manage them.

Doors will open at 5.30pm. Talk will start at 6pm.

The talk will be followed by an informal reception to which all ticket holders are invited
