Summary of the Discussion on Large-Scale Atmospheric Extreme Weather Events in Stockholm

Extreme, high-impact weather events have serious social and economic consequences, and have garnered widespread scientific and media attention. Understanding their drivers and improving their prediction is therefore a topic of crucial societal and economic value, where the interests of academia, policy makers and private stakeholders converge.

Empirical limits in the estimation of financial risk measures

Following the financial crisis of 2007-2008, governments and financial regulators all over the globe pledged to reduce risk in the financial system. Many have raised capital requirements on banks, while others have tried to force financial institutions to be less opaque in communications with their clients. Read more

A Novel Model to Simulate Biological Cell Migration

In recent years evidence has accumulated that single biological cells often move in a way that is unlike Brownian motion, a paradigmatic model of random dynamics. Instead, cells migrate faster and exhibit so-called superdiffusion. This article reports on a new method to efficiently simulate superdiffusively moving cells. Read more

Comparison of shortest and fastest routes through cities reveals a structural typology of city development

Much is known about the geometry of road networks within cities, and how these vary with city size and level of economic development. Less is known about how these structures influence the flows of people and activity within cities, and how that activity in turn feeds back to shape road network geometry. Read more
