Butlletí de la Societat Catalana de Matemàtiques Vol. 25, núm. 2, 2010. Pàg. 211–212 English summaries Rosario Delgado Mathematics and the Internet: 101 years of queueing theory Unprecedented in growth, with no parallels in heterogeneity, and unpredictable or even chaotic in its behaviour, “The Internet is a revolution in itself” (in the words of Anthony-Michael Rutkowski, named executive director of the Internet Society in 1994). In this paper we will look at how and why traffic information through the Internet differs in fundamental aspects from the voice traffic through conventional communications networks (fixed telephony), and we introduce a mathematical model that represented a milestone in teletraffic engineering. Keywords: Internet, teletraffic, fractal, queueing theory, Poisson process, self- similarity, long memory, heavy tails, fractional Brownian motion. MSC2010 Subject Classification: 60-03 (01A60, 01A65, 01A67, 01A70), 60F05, 60G07, 60G15, 60G18, 60G22, 60J65, 60K25, 90B15. 212 Jesús Fernández-Sánchez Invariants: an approach from algebra to phylogenetics In the last years, a new approach to phylogenetic reconstruction based on techniques coming from algebra has been consolidating. Given an evolutionary model for a given set of species, the invariants are algebraic relations satisfied by the theoretical distributions of the nucleotides of these species. In this paper we show how to use these invariants to design algorithms for phylogenetic reconstruction and we explain how the efficiency of these algorithms can benefit from results based on algebraic geometry and the representation theory of groups. Keywords: Phylogenetic reconstruction, evolutionary model, algebraic variety. MSC2010 Subject Classification: 14Q15, 92D15, 92D20.
