D1. Physics and Mathematics

Mathematics is developed from the beginning of human history and now is the base and fundamental tools for sciences and engineering including social and psycology, .... Pure mathematics including number theory, algebra, topology, geometry and analysis has their own prospect and applied mathematics including numerical analysis, probability and statistics support and gave fundamental methods for research and developments for sciences and engineering. Currently, developing important methods are artificial intelligent, machine learning and numerical simulation by using high performance computer. Physics, which was born to describe and understand nature, is one of the most fundamental subjects for humanity. The physics has affected to various other areas, e.g. electronics, mechanics, and chemistry, and had crucial networks with them. To keep up-to-date with the latest progress, look at the problems from different perspectives, and establish international networks., Physics and Mathematics Group plans to bring together Korean and European Scientists and Engineers by organizing following sessions at EKC 2019. In the Talk Sessions, experts and key persons in the selected research area (listed below) will introduce the field and discuss current main issues and new developments. - Session 1. Progress on the pure mathematics in Europe and Korea - Session 2. Machine learning and Artificial intelligent and its applications - Session 3.

Since the first discovery of X-ray (or Röntgen ray) on 8th November 1895 by Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, a new era of science has begun. Medical application is one of the most affected fields due to highly transparent property of X-rays. Various unknown structures, e.g. crystals, molecules, and bio & nano materials, have been investigated thanks to reasonably short wavelengths of X-rays. As human’s scientific knowledge has improved, however, demands for better X-ray sources and techniques have been requested. To keep up with these demands, new generation X-ray sources, e.g. X-ray free-electron laser and diffraction-limited storage ring, with extremely high photon flux and ultra-short pulse width have been developed recently. In this proposed program, characteristics of the new X-ray sources, scientific & technical challenges, diverse applications, and scientific issues will be discussed.

This topic is a continuation of a previous session, organized in the EKC2018 conference in Glasgow, with the title “Cellular Recognitions in BioNano Interfaces”, targeting cell-recognition and engineering of bio-nano interfaces. The session aims to highlight current developments in flexible 3D connections between external electronics devices and cells, which underlie the success of implants. One of frontier research fields where such (organic-based) devices are used involves stimulation and recording of brain activity and their performance in neural tissue. The softness and flexibility of the eternal device that is implanted into the brain tissue as well as the materials properties determine the long-term response of cells after insertion of the device. These properties of the external device determine the nature of the connection with cells, as well as the time period over which an implant is active and effective. Various materials have been proposed, including coating and tagging of cell membranes. The session also embraces molecular processes involved in cell-recognition and cell-cell interactions in broader fields of research, including (biomimetic) experiments, simulations, and mathematical modeling.

Differential geometry has been a thriving area of research since more than 200 years, employing methods from analysis to investigate geometric problems. Typical questions involve the shape of smooth curves and surfaces and the geometry of manifolds and Lie groups. The field is at the core of theoretical physics and plays an important role in applications to engineering and design. Finite and infinite geometric structures are ubiquitous in mathematics. Their investigation is often intimately related to other areas, such as algebra, combinatorics or computer science. These two aspects of geometric research stimulate and inform each other, for example, in the area of "discrete differential geometry", which is particularly well suited for computer aided shape design.

Mathematical models have been widely used in studying various infectious diseases of humans and animals for a long time. These models are useful to understand nature of complex mechanisms of infectious diseases. Findings of these understanding are essential to investigate potential impact of interventions to reduce burden of diseases during government policy decision making processes. Due to the complex nature of these infectious diseases, cost effectiveness analyses of such intervention are essential to maximize benefit of these interventions with limited government budget. In this session, various examples of mathematical models of infectious diseases will be introduced and potential collaborations in this subject between Europe and South Korea will be discussed.

Various emerging infectious pathogens such as Ebola, Zika, and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome – Corona virus (MERS-CoV) are being studied in many parts of the world. Much of these pathogens are, however, poorly defined so far. This lack of information on these pathogens often causes not only morbidity and mortality among infected individuals but also huge social and economic damages like the MERS-CV outbreak occurred in South Korea in 2015. In order to reduce potential damages, many aspects of these pathogens are being studied including epidemiology of those pathogens, detection of infected individuals, contact patterns, development of medical treatment an vaccines, real-time modelling of outbreaks, modelling potential impact of counter measures such as school closures, and so on. In this session, researchers from Europe and South Korea will share their researches on these aspects and discuss potential collaborations between them.
