    A graph is automatically also a metric space, but is there anything interesting to say about such metric spaces? Many fascinating and concrete questions are encapsulated in the more general (and vague) question "to what extent can a finite graph emulate the properties of a infinite regular tree ?". We will see how this leads us to investigate expansion in graphs and questions about the large scale aspects of graph metrics including girth and diameter and the relations between the two. If time permits (probably not) I may also say a little about the local geometry of graphs.

    This talk is based on many collaborations which I have had over the years, among my more recent collaborators are Michael Chapman, Yuval Peled and Yonatan Bilu. The talk requires no particular previous background and should be accessible to general mathematical audience.

    We consider quantum dynamics on a graph, with repeated strong measurements performed locally at a fixed time interval τ. For example, a particle starting on node x and measurements performed on another node x'. From the basic postulates of quantum mechanics the string of measurements yields a sequence: no, no, no, … and finally in the
    n-th attempt a yes, i.e. the particle is detected. Statistics of the first detection time nτ are investigated, and compared with the corresponding classical first passage problem.
    Dark states, Zeno physics, a quantum renewal equation, winding number for the first return problem (work of A. Grunbaum et al.), total detection probability, detection time operators and time wave functions are discussed.

    Cell migration and cell mechanics play a crucial role in a number of key biological processes, such as embryo development or cancer metastasis. Understanding the way cells control their own material properties and mechanically interact with their environment is key. At a more fundamental level, there is need better measure, describe and monitor cell and tissue mechanics before we can formulate testable hypotheses. In this talk, I will report experimental studies on the mechanical response of two different multicellular structures: epithelial monolayers and early embryonic tissues. In both cases, the material exhibits a strong time-dependent response over a broad distribution of time-scales. The combination of mechanical characterisation with biological perturbations offers new insight into the mechanisms exploited by cells and tissue to control their mechanical properties.
    This insight is however limited by the lack of consistency in experimental protocols and modelling strategies used in the field. We recently developed a systematic approach to capture material properties from mechanical behaviours and made progress assessing the model’s generality over a broad range of biological systems
