Mathematics meets Industry day 2022
Mathematics meets Industry at the 6th Mellroth-Muntean day (MIMM® day) at Karlstad University. Companies propose scientific challenges. Teams of mathematicians consisting of senior researchers, doctoral and university students as well as upper secondary students work together to come up with solution strategies to the proposed problem.
7TH OF DECEMBER 2022 AT KARLSTAD UNIVERSITY
Companies propose scientific challenges to mathematicians, i.e. problems involving relevant unsolved technological or societal issues in search for a suitable solution. The expected outcome includes: solutions to the posed problems, training of all participants, opportunities for further collaboration.
- Derivation of Boltzmann-type equations for high-speed flows (SAAB)
- Engine data reduction (SAAB)
- Design of good trailing edge shapes (Kongsberg)
During the MIMM® day, teams will be formed to attack the industrial problems. Each team will be composed of mathematicians with very different levels of seniority, i.e. senior researchers (1), doctoral students (1-3), university students (2-3) and upper secondary students (2-3). The problem owners from the companies will also join the teams. The working language will be English.
Senior researchers, doctoral and university students enrolled in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at KAU have priority in registering to the event. However, the participation is open to all scientists or university students from KAU or from elsewhere in Sweden.
Upper secondary pupils studying science or technical programs, or another comparable direction in a Swedish school, are welcome to join. Participants must be creative and show interest in mathematics. Please write a brief motivation letter and explain why you want to take part in the MIMM® day. A short recommendation letter from a mentor or a teacher in mathematics, physics or technics is appreciated.
