Earthquakes in Barcelona: How big are the biggest earthquakes?

It has been known since the 1950s that the number of earthquakes of large magnitude follows the law of Gutenberg and Richter: for a region (any) and a time interval (sufficient) the probability distribution of the magnitude of earthquakes will be exponential (decreasing) , with many small earthquakes and (fortunately) few large ones. The simplicity […]

Industrial Maths in Barcelona (and Limerick)

Over the next 2 weeks we will showcase various research projects in Spain, with an obvious focus on Barcelona and a less obvious focus on Limerick. This is due to a number of recent exchanges between researchers from CRM and MACSI. Also, U. Limerick recently hosted the 128th ESGI and so we expect various contributions […]
