Stefeno Luzzatto received his PhD in Dynamical Systems from the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste and the Instituto de Matematica Pura e Aplicada (IMPA) in Rio de Janeiro, under the supervision of Marcelo Viana an Jacob Palis in 1995. He was a postdoc at the Mathematics Institute at Warwick University from 1995 to 1999 and a lecturer, senior lecturer and reader from 2000 at Imperial College London where he co-founded the Dynamical Systems group DynamIC. In 2009 he had the privilege of moving to the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste where he coordinated the activities in Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory within the Mathematics Section.
His research is in the area of Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory or more specifically in the "Stochastic properties of deterministic dynamical systems". This has to do with the fact that many dynamical systems are "chaotic" in the sense that their short-term behavior is quite unpredictable but statistically well behaved, which allows us to have fairly reliable long-term statistical information and predictions.
He is involved in the organization of many schools and workshop both in Trieste and elsewhere, including in developing countries, and of supporting mathematicians working with few resources and difficult conditions. Recently, as a Scientific Coordinator of the International Mathematics Master (IMM) he was instrumental in the launch of first pilot project in Lahore, Pakistan.
About the John Conway Spirited Seminar Series: John Conway Spirited Seminar series was started in 2021 by the Department of Mathematics at Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering-LUMS, Pakistan. These seminars allow mathematicians from all over the World to indulge in productive discussions on recently evolved theories, expositions, and research. These seminars are purposefully kept online (through Zoom) to avoid the logistics limitations of inviting a speaker from the mathematically developed World and provide a latitude for researchers and students to benefit from these seminars. Almost all the talks are recorded with the speaker's prior consent, and these recorded talks are available on the website. Stay connected with recent development through seminars is highly important for cultivating of effective ideas. Though John Conway never visited Pakistan, it is an endeavor to live his spirited enthusiasm for promoting mathematics. A humble tribute to his grand legacy and spirited attitude to promoting mathematical discussions. We invite all mathematicians, young researchers, and students to these seminars.
Dr. Dar did his PhD from Technische Universität, Dresden (Germany). During PhD, he worked on various methods to optimally solve an NP-hard problem of discrete optimization, known as the Minimum Connectivity Inference (MCI) problem. This problem has appeared in different scientific fields of applied nature like structural biology, engineering and computer science. His past work also consists of the simulation-based tests in which different mathematical models are solved by using solvers like CPLEX®

The interaction between respiratory diseases of influenza and pneumonia is vital to understanding how coinfection might affect the transmission of pneumonia. We formulate an ordinary differential equation-based model to analyze the qualitative behavior of influenza and pneumonia coinfection. We determine the effective reproduction number and show that disease-free, boundary, and endemic equilibria are locally and globally stable in the absence of coinfection. Further, the model undergoes a backward bifurcation in the presence of the coinfection. Epidemiologically, this means that to eliminate disease, it may not be sufficient to bring the reproduction number below one. We then present numerical simulations to support the analytical results.

Dr Ashraf did his postdoc at University of Southern California, LA, and at the Institute of Parallel and Distributed Computing at University of Stuttgart, Stuttgart, Germany. From the year 2002, he has been working on problems of learning and teaching mathematics at the high school, college and university level. In order to address these and related problems, he has started an innovative and futuristic MS Program at NUST, Islamabad. The name of the graduate program is (ITL) Innovation, Technology, and Learning. It is a close replica of the TIE (Technology, Innovation, Education) program at Harvard University. He has been conducting National & International Workshops on "The Magic and Beauty of Differential Calculus" for the last five years. He had participants from India, China, Ireland, Germany and the UK.
His research work on problems of learning mathematics using technology had been presented in International Conferences in Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Australia, Taiwan and of course Pakistan.
In 1994, Maxim Kontsevich posed the Homological Mirror Symmetry (HMS) conjecture at the ICM in Zurich. HMS is a homological version (meaning equivalence at the level of categories) of the phenomenon of Mirror Symmetry (MS) observed by Physicists studying string theory. MS serves as an unexpected bridge between the complex geometry of one manifold X and the symplectic geometry of its mirror manifold XV. Fukaya categories, constructed in the works of Kenji Fukaya and collaborators, are fairly complicated entities which constitute the A-side (or the symplectic side) of the HMS conjecture.
In this particular talk, Dr. Haniya Azam will give a down to earth introduction to the Fukaya category of a surface of genus greater than 2. Part of this talk is based on joint work with Christian Blanchet, which is an attempt to give an intrinsic topological model for the Fukaya category of a Riemann surface disregarding the area form (and hence the symplectic structure) on the surface.
