The MOX Laboratory
The Modelling and Scientific Computing Laboratory (MOX) is part of the Department of Mathematics of Politecnico di Milano. It was established in 2002 with the objective of promoting research in the field of mathematical modelling, numerical analysis, scientific computing and statistical analysis, with a special focus on real life applications as well as industrial mathematics. It is currently headed by Prof. Alfio Quarteroni.
Its research activities focus on the development of advanced numerical and statistical models and their application to real life problems in engineering, health and life sciences, as well as social studies. With more than 20 permanent academics and more than 30 among PhD candidates and post-docs, MOX is nowadays one of the largest University research laboratory devoted to applied mathematics in Italy. In the year 2010 it has promoted the foundation of MOXOFF a spinoff of Politecnico di Milano dedicated to the application of mathematical research to industrial problems.
It is currently organised into several activity groups that cover the main research and application areas of the Laboratory: numerical methods, applied statistics, biomedical applications, computational geosciences, high performance computing and industrial mathematics. It is actively involved in several research projects financed by National and European bodies as well a Industries.
The Lab hosts several PhD students of the Doctoral School on Mathematical Models and Methods in Engineering of Politecnico di Milano as well as Bachelor and Master students of Mathematical Engineering and other Schools of Politecnico.
