Welcome to CAMS
The Center for Applied Mathematical Sciences is an organized research unit
based in the Department of Mathematics
at USC.
The purpose of CAMS is to foster research and graduate education in
Mathematics in a broad sense and in an interdisciplinary mode. One goal
of the center's participants is to facilitate and encourage the development of
applicable mathematics and its utilization in problems in engineering and the
sciences.
The mission of the Center is threefold.
 To maintain USC's position as an internationallyrecognized center in
several important and well defined areas of mathematics and its applications
 To be a muchneeded interface between the Department of Mathematics and
other USC departments and institutions outside USC.
 To serve as a catalyst in the development of stateoftheart
activities in applicable mathematics at USC.

Multilayer Networks and Applications
Networks provided a powerful representation of complex systems of interacting entities. One of the most active areas of network science, with an explosion of publications during the last few years, is the study of "multilayer networks," in which heterogeneous types of entities can be connected via multiple social ties that change in time. Multilayer networks include multiple subsystems and "layers" of connectivity, and it is important...

Ergodicity Results for Stochastic Boussinesq Equations
We will review some recent results on invariant measures for stochastic Boussinesq equations (model equations for RayleighBenard convection perturbed by an additive noise). First we will discuss ergodicity and mixing results in the twodimensional periodic domain with a spatially degenerate stochastic forcing. These results generalize recent progress of Hairer and Mattingly on hypoellipticity for infinitedimensional systems....

Long term behaviour of maximal entropy solutions for 2D Euler equation
Two dimensional turbulent flows for large Reynold's numbers can be approximated by solutions of incompressible Euler's equation. As time increases, the solutions of Euler's equation are increasing their disorder; however, at the same time, they are limited by the existence of infinitely many invariants. Hence, it is natural to assume that the limit profiles are functions which maximize an entropy given the values of conserved quantities....
