The Fatou-Julia iteration theory of rational and transcendental entire functions has recently been extended to quasiregular maps in more than two real dimensions. Our goal in this paper is similar; we extend the iteration theory of analytic self-maps... Read More about The dynamics of quasiregular maps of punctured space.

Tail expectile process and risk assessment (2019)
Journal Article

Expectiles define a least squares analogue of quantiles. They are determined by tail expectations rather than tail probabilities. For this reason and many other theoretical and practical merits, expectiles have recently received a lot of attention, e... Read More about Tail expectile process and risk assessment.

We explore extreme nonlinear water-wave amplification in a contraction or, analogously, wave amplification in crossing seas. The latter case can lead to extreme or rogue-wave formation at sea. First, amplification of a solitary-water-wave compound ru... Read More about From bore-soliton-splash to a new wave-to-wire wave-energy model.

Mathematical modelling of telomere length dynamics (2019)
Journal Article

Telomeres are repetitive DNA sequences located at the ends of chromosomes. During cell division, an incomplete copy of each chromosome's DNA is made, causing telomeres to shorten on successive generations. When a threshold length is reached replicati...

Global uniform estimate for the modulus of 2D Ginzburg-Landau vortexless solutions with asymptotically infinite boundary energy (2019)
Journal Article
Ignat, R., Kurzke, M., & Lamy, X. (2019). Global uniform estimate for the modulus of 2D Ginzburg-Landau vortexless solutions with asymptotically infinite boundary energy. SIAM Journal on Mathematical Analysis,

For ε > 0, let uε : Ω → R 2 be a solution of the Ginzburg-Landau system −∆uε = 1 ε 2 uε(1 − |uε| 2) in a Lipschitz bounded domain Ω. In an energy regime that excludes interior vortices, we prove that 1 − |uε| is uniformly estimated by a positive powe...

The Conditional Tail Expectation is an indicator of tail behaviour that, contrary to the quantile or Value-at-Risk, takes into account the frequency of a tail event together with the probabilistic behaviour of the variable of interest on this event....

Pair-based likelihood approximations for stochastic epidemic models (2019)
Journal Article
Stockdale, J. E., Kypraios, T., & O'Neill, P. D. (in press). Pair-based likelihood approximations for stochastic epidemic models. Biostatistics,

Fitting stochastic epidemic models to data is a non-standard problem because data on the infection processes defined in such models are rarely observed directly. This in turn means that the likelihood of the observed data is intractable in the sense... Read More about Pair-based likelihood approximations for stochastic epidemic models.
