Explanatory note to Decree (2)

Council has recently reviewed the arrangements for association of
university lecturerships and professorships with single-sex colleges
and has decided that, for the future, not only will a mixed college
be able to offer a fellowship to a successful male candidate, need to
be associated with the appointment (under the provisions of Ch. VII,
Sect. II, cl. 6, Statutes 1995, p. 374) but also the law requires
that a woman appointed to such a post should have the right to choose
between the two college associations. The following decree amends the
legislation governing the allocation of professorships and the
proceedings of electoral boards accordingly.

Decree (2)

1 In Ch. VII, Sect. I, § 2, cl. 6,
concerning elections to professorships (Statutes, 1995,
p. 353), after `both sexes' insert `, or women candidates alone,'.

2 Ibid., delete the final sentence and
substitute: `If during the course of the election only men candidates
remain under consideration, the electors from the college open to men
and women shall have one vote each and the electors from the women's
college shall not be entitled to vote.'

3 Ibid., Sect. II, concerning the allocation
of professorships (Statutes, 1995, p. 374), insert new
cl. 7 as follows and renumber existing cll. 7 and 8 (pp. 374–5)
as cll. 8 and 9:

`7. In the event of a woman being elected or appointed to a
professorship allocated or to be allocated under the provisions of
this decree to a woman's college but desiring to hold the
professorship at the college specified under clause 6 above, Council
shall allocate the professorship to that college for the period of
her tenure thereof; and from and after the termination of her tenure,
the professorship shall forthwith, by virtue of this decree, again be
allocated to the college to which it was allocated immediately before
her election or appointment thereto.'

Explanatory note to Decree (3)

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Management
Committee for the Winchester and Pavry Memorial Lecturerships and
with the concurrence of the General Board, provides that visiting
lecturers appointed under this scheme should lecture in a given
subject rather than being required specifically to give one lecture:
this is to provide greater flexibility so that, for instance, a
lecturer might be required to give two or more talks if thought
desirable in a particular case. The decree also provides that surplus
income may be invested in augmentation of the capital if this seems
to the committee desirable, for as long as that is permissible in
law.

Decree (3)

1 In Ch. IX, Sect. I, § 377, cl. 2
(Statutes, 1995, p. 679), delete `to give one lecture
which may be' and substitute `to lecture'.

2 Ibid., cl. 4, delete `annual lecture' and
substitute `annual lecturership'.

3 Ibid., delete `either be used to meet the
cost of a second lecturer in the year in question or carried forward
for use in a subsequent year' and substitute `at the discretion of
the committee:

(a) be used to meet the cost of a second lecturer in the
year in question;

(b) be carried forward for expenditure in a subsequent
year;

(c) be invested in augmentation of the capital, for as long
as this shall be permissible in law'.

the 1995–6 fee for the course at £250.

Decree (4)

1 In Examination Decrees, 1995, p.
1050, after l. 12 insert new item (g) as follows and
renumber existing items (g)–(j) (ll.
13–16) as items (h)–(k):

`(g) Postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies;'.

2 Ibid., p. 1053, after l. 36 insert new item
(d) as follows and renumber existing items
(d)–(g) (p. 1054, ll. 1–6) as items
(e)–( h):

    BODLEIAN LIBRARY


    Temporary closure of the Map Room

    The Library regrets to announce that during the period 11–21
    December it will not be possible for readers to consult large-size
    newspapers in hard copy due to closure of the Map Room for essential
    electrical work.

    Further details may be obtained from Mr Nick Millea, Map Librarian
    (telephone: (2)77013, e-mail: nmillea@vax.ox.ac.uk).


    Inter-library loan charges

    The cost to the reader requesting an item on inter-library loan has
    been held at £1 per request for books, periodicals, or
    photocopies, and £2 per request for theses, since 1988. At that
    time the charge to the Bodleian Library from the British Library
    Document Supply Centre (through which all requests pass) was £2
    and £4 respectively. The current charge levied by BLDSC is
    £4.39 for books, periodicals, or photocopies and £8.78 for
    theses. If the items are acquired from overseas the charge rises to
    £13.17.

    It is with regret that the Curators of the Bodleian feel that a
    fairer proportion of the charges must be passed to the reader. From
    January 1996 the cost to the reader will be £2 for books,
    periodicals, and photocopies, and £4 for theses. The charge for
    the Urgent Action and Copyright Cleared Services will remain at
    £6.

    I Introduction to Mathematical Modelling

    The aim of the course is
    to develop and extend some of the theoretical ideas developed in the
    mainstream mathematics course and to show how they can be applied in
    simple modelling situation. The methods and models will be fully
    integrated so that each technique will be illustrated with at least
    one application. Methods to be covered: Modelling,
    nondimensionalisation, dimensional analysis, similarity solutions.
    Asymptotic methods of solution for ordinary differential equations,
    regular and singular expansions, bifurcations, stability. First order
    quasi-linear partial differential equations, travelling wave
    solutions, shocks. Classification of second-order quasi-linear
    partial differential equations, well-posedness, linear and nonlinear
    diffusion equations, travelling waves, solutions with compact
    support, moving boundary problems.

    II

    either Mathematics and the Environment

    Applications of mathematics to environment problems involving the
    use of models with ordinary differential equations, first order
    partial differential equations, and nonlinear diffusion equations.
    Examples to be considered will be taken from the following:
    (i) river flow; (ii) climate dynamics and ice ages; (iii)
    geomagnetic reversals of the earth's magnetic field; (iv) soil
    consolidation and groundwater flow; (v) snow melt run-off; (vi)
    surging ice sheets; (vii) glacier outburst flood (jÜkulhlaups).

    or Mathematics in Materials Science

    Mechanics Simple models for elastic and plastic materials, rods
    and plates, elastic waves, dislocations, yield criterion (linar and
    nonlinear p.d.e.'s, tensors, complex variables). Phase Changes Basis
    ideas about free energy and order parameters. Melting and
    solidification of pure materials and alloys, simple Stefan problems,
    solid/solid phase transformations (ordinary and partial d.e.'s,
    asymptotics, calculus of variations, stability). Electromagnetic
    Properties Simple models for semiconductivity and superconducting
    devices, p-n junctions, type I and type II superconductors, vortices,
    critical-state models.
