I will describe the relationship between obstructions to mixing and eigenvectors of transition operators; in particular I will focus on recent work on the non-stationary case.

My lecture will begin explaining the basics and proceed with a selection of lovely applications of Helly's theorem and its generalizations.

I will present some simple problems where classical methods fail and explain the ideas behind rigourous computing. This is an evolving area hoping to put error bars on your computations and (some) analysts out of work.

In this talk, we will present some further mathematical and numerical evidence to show that self-sustained oscillations of purely hemodynamical origin are possible in some arcade-type microvascular networks supplied with steady boundary conditions.
