CAM Seminar: The mean-field limit of non-exchangeable integrate and fire systems

Author: Lona | Image: Lona

Speaker: Pierre Jabin, Professor of Mathematics at Penn State University



We investigate the mean-field limit of large networks of interacting biological neurons. The neurons are represented by the so-called integrate and fire models that follow the membrane potential of each neurons and captures individual spikes. However we do not assume any structure on the graph of interactions but consider instead any connection weights between neurons that obey a generic mean-

field scaling. We are able to extend the concept of extended graphons, introduced in Jabin-Poyato-Soler, by introducing a novel notion of discrete observables in the system. This is a joint work with D. Zhou.
