Online education for mathematical modelling in Finland

Project1

Seven Finnish universities have joined their efforts to teach mathematical modelling in Finland with the help of the World Wide Web. By bundling the resources and expertise, they managed to offer modelling courses that would otherwise be beyond the capabilities of the individual universities. The collaboration started 2002 as a pilot project of the Finnish […]

Waveform tomography with signal sparsity

Images (1)-(4) show different stages of an experiment [4] with a
15x15x15 cm plastic test object. From left to right: (1) cubic mould with three
stones placed inside, (2) ultrasonic travel-time  measurements via a pair of 55
kHz transducers, (3) CT scan of the interior, and (4) three dimensional CT image
of the stones (blue) compared to the ultrasonic reconstruction (green) obtained
using six face-centric source positions (yellow three-branched symbols).

The inverse problems group of the Department of Mathematics, Tampere University of Technology does research that is closely related to technological advancements in many applied fields of science including astronomical and astrophysical modeling, environmental engineering and biomedical imaging. We concentrate, among other things, on reconstructing the 3D shape of an asteroid based on the intensity […]
