Developing mathematical theories of the physical world: Open Access research on fluid dynamics from Strathclyde

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by Strathclyde's Department of Mathematics & Statistics, where continuum mechanics and industrial mathematics is a specialism. Such research seeks to understand fluid dynamics, among many other related areas such as liquid crystals and droplet evaporation.

The Department of Mathematics & Statistics also demonstrates expertise in population modelling & epidemiology, stochastic analysis, applied analysis and scientific computing. Access world leading mathematical and statistical Open Access research!

Facilitated workshops, in which a group of key stakeholders are helped to structure, build and use a multicriteria model, are a common and effective approach to MCDA. However, often it is not possible to bring together all those with relevant expertise and ownership. This talk will describe and reflect on the lessons learned from two case studies which have used different ways of sourcing expert input to inform the building of multicriteria models to be used by others, one associated with the UNEP MCA4Climate Project and the other the EPSRC Highly Distributed Energy Futures Project.
