Slower than usual transport in porous media

In the last decade a number of researchers have found that in some materials (such as zeolite or building bricks) the moisture diffusion follows a slower than usual pace and thus its transport becomes subdiffusive. There is a wealth of literature on the experimental side of the subdiffusion, but its crucial nonlinear aspects are described […]

Ulam Computer Simulations Workshop. Challenges & Opportunities in Molecular Simulations

Ulam Computer Simulations Workshop ( was held at the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv on 21-24 June 2017, 70 years from the invention of the Monte Carlo method – nowadays widely used to solve problems in various fields of physical and life sciences, engineering, finance, statistics, mathematics, etc. The conference was organized by Institute […]

Dynamics of the capillary rise: a peculiar occurrence of oscillations

My name is Mateusz Świtała and I am at my fifth year on Faculty of Pure and Applied Mathematics, Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Poland. My subject of study is Applied Mathematics and I am also giving tutorials in mathematical software programming. This work with younger students is very rewarding and inspiring for further […]

Solving integro-differential equations arising in material science

My name is Szymon Sobieszek and currently I am a fourth-year Applied Mathematics student at the Faculty of Pure and Applied Mathematics, Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Poland. My scientific interests are mostly aimed at the deterministic methods in industrial mathematics. In connection to these, I have recently (July 17) participated in 30th edition […]
