The Oman Mathematics Committee, along with Sultan Qaboos University organized the “Workshop on Difference equations: Modelling and Beyond” last, 5th April 2017. Lecturers from Math Section of Department of Information Technology, Mr. K. G. Sreekumar, Mr. A. Naseer Ahmed, Mr. Ranjith Kumar K. R, Mr. Gopal Thangavel and Mr. Naheed Mohammed attended the workshop.
Dr. Fatima Al-Kharousi OMC, DAMAS-SQU and Dr. Asma Al-Ghassani DAMAS-SQU gave the welcome speech and opening remarks, respectively. The five sessions in the workshop included “Squeeze Theorem to prove convergence of recursive sequences”, which was explained by Dr.Ziyad Al-Sharawi, “Maximal Output Admissible sets for nonlinear discrete systems”, discussed by Dr.Abdessamed Tridane, “Area – preserving maps and the use of KAM theory to prove local stability”, explained by Dr.Amal Amleh, “On the rational equation in DE” by Dr. Mohamed Ben Haj Rhouma, and “On the dynamics of a difference equation of the form ” by Dr.Asma Al-Ghassani.
The Workshop discussed discrete dynamical systems, as well as modelling problems and related concepts, especially application in Mathematical Biology. Moreover, the workshop provided a broad vision for researchers and academic staff to explore this field of mathematics concept in real life applications.
