    the Earth revolved around the sun along with the other planets But would he have been so bold a scientist if he had access to 2011 computers Or would he have just mouse clicked his way into fame developing a simulation package that supported further tinkering with the Ptolemaic model Refreshments will be served Posted 11 November 2011 A Mathematical Model of T Cell Exhaustion Caused by HBV HDV On Wednesday November 9th at 4 30pm Hobart Mathematics Major Yaoxin Liu 12 will discuss his summer research project in Napier 201 In patients with chronic hepatitis B infection the immune system becomes exhausted losing its effectiveness over time Co infection with another virus Hepatitis Delta reduces the amount of HBV in the blood and so may relieve the exhaustion During the Summer Research Program last summer Yixiao Sha Yaoxin Liu and Prof Jonathan Forde developed an ordinary differential equation model of the interactions of these two viruses and the immune system to study the effect of a second infection on immune exhaustion Sha Liu and Forde started by studying the four dimensional model with only HBV infection and then added the second virus HDV They also analyzed various steady states and their stability for both systems All the stability conditions are found for the four dimensional system with only HBV infection For the five dimensional system with HDV numerical simulations show the existence of positive steady states representing chronic coinfection The model suggests that co infection does not reduce the exhaustion level but increases damage due to general inflammation Refreshments will be served beforehand Posted 4 November 2011 Mathematical Models of Bone Biochemistry with Applications to the Treatment of Osteoporosis On Wednesday October 26th at 4 30pm in Napier 201 the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science will host Dr David Ross of Rochester Institute of Technology Dr Ross is a SIAM Visiting Lecturer and will be giving a talk entitled Mathematical Models of Bone Biochemistry with Applications to the Treatment of Osteoporosis In humans and other mammals the skeleton is continuously remodeled that is dissolved and rebuilt human bone has an annual turnover rate of about 10 percent Understanding the biochemical processes of bone remodeling is important to the development of treatments for the disease osteoporosis which is characterized by low bone mass and which puts those who have it at risk of bone fractures Osteoporosis results from an imbalance in the biochemical remodeling process when resorption the chemical breakdown of old bone outstrips the formation of new bone The most common cause of osteoporosis is age related hormone change the reduction of estrogen in women after menopause and the reduction of testosterone in older men Roughly 20 percent of women over the age of 50 have osteoporosis In this talk Professor Ross will discuss dynamical system models of bone remodeling that are used to simulate bone remodeling and to study the effects of various treatments for the condition He will focus on the ways in which the dynamical
