Network Collaborators

The roles of the five international institutions bringing together the expertise of world-leading researchers from integrable systems, minimal surfaces and visualisation that are taking part in this three year research programme are as follows;


Dr Katrin Leschke

University of Leicester

K Leschke

The University of Leicester will be at the heart of the research network. The Department of Mathematics in Leicester has a very strong group in “Geometry and Visualisation” with research expertise of various members of staff (I. Tyukin, F. Neumann, A. Gorban, E. Mirkes) in related areas, with strong interdisciplinary links (e.g. in engineering and chemistry) and industrial applications (KTP grant with Apical Ltd). In particular, we maintain a Visual Intelligence Lab, a facility with equipment for fast visual data processing and 3D projection. Dr Leschke will be involved in all activities of the network, in particular in the organisation of the seminar in Leicester and of the workshops at all network partners.

Dr Katsuhiro Moriya

University of Tsukuba

K Moriya

The University has agreed to host members of the network on research visits to Tsukuba during the course of the grant. Dr Moriya has agreed to host members of thenetwork on research visits to Tsukuba during the course of the grant, while at the same time strongly contributing to the research project and the network as an expert on the link between minimal surfaces and Quaternionic Holomorphic Geometry.

Dr Moriya has been awarded the KAKENHI award to Grants in aid scientific research for "Representation formulas for surfaces of higher codimension and submanifolds and their applications".and is the Principal investigator.

Professor Francisco Martin

University of Granada

F Martin

The University of Granada will host a workshop in the second year of the programme, which will focus on the research on the topic of this grant. It will be preceded by an independently funded summer school for graduate students on minimal surfaces. Also, the department will host members of the network for research visits. Professor Martin has agreed to help organise a workshop in Granada. Professor Martin will be visiting Leicester for a longer research project which will focus on integrable system methods for minimal surfaces in the example of product spaces.

Dr Martin Kilian

University College Cork

M Killian

UCC has agreed to host members of the network for research visits and a workshop on minimal surfaces and integrable systems. Dr Kilian has agreed to help organise a workshop on minimal surfaces and integrable systems. Dr Kilian will participate in the network activities and come to Leicester for a longer research visit where we will investigate deformations of spectral data.

Professor Tim Hoffmann

Technical University of Munich

T Hoffman

The University has agreed to host members of the network for research visits to Munich and to host a workshop in Munich. Professor Hoffmann has agreed to host members of the network for research visits to Munich. Prof. Hoffmann will also help to organise a workshop in the area of visualisation. Hoffmann's expertise will be fundamental to the mathematical experiments in the project.
