The Mathematics for Industry Network (MI-NET)

Bath IMI is delighted to host the MI-NET (Mathematics for Industry Network). Through Horizon 2020 COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) funding 2015-2019, MI-NET supports a pan-European programme of activities to leverage existing industrial maths activity in Europe, increase the uptake of mathematics in industry, and support the next generation of industrial mathematicians. What we do MI-NET provides seed funding for industrial mathematics activities. The approach to activities is twofold. MI-NET supports an increased number of well-established mechanisms: one-day themed … [Read More...]

Modeling scattered electromagnetic waves

  by Leonidas Mindrinos (Computational Science Center, University of Vienna, Austria) leonidas.mindrinos@univie.ac.at In many applications, like material parameter investigation and nondestructive testing, arises the inverse problem of reconstructing the position, the shape and / or the properties of a cavity or an inclusion from given measurements. A good knowledge of the direct problem is necessary […]
