CIMPA Summer School

AIMS Rwanda students are currently participating in a virtual Math’s Summer School delivered by the International Centre for Pure and Applied Mathematics (Centre International de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées -CIMPA). 

Running from 5-13 July 2021, the school aims at introducing graduate students and young researchers to the mathematic of Climate Science. Lectures will cover key topics in the field focusing on their mathematical complexity and dimension. Climate science is genuinely interdisciplinary and this is reflected in the breadth of the topics offered in the school such as predictability, data assimilation, climate prediction, climate sensitivity, and thermodynamics. The mathematics to address and understand these problems will be the characteristic of the school and will include dynamical system, statistics, numerical methods, statistical mechanics, and linear algebra. The lectures will start by presenting the physical concrete challenge and then will focus on the mathematical tools and concepts used to solve them. At the same time, there will be tutorials with practical problems to be solved by the students under 
the mentors’ guidance.
