Nanomath 2016

EM

Part of the huge 1960’s electron microscope at CEMES, Toulouse The 3rd Nanomath conference was held this week in Toulouse. The aim of the conference is to bring together mathematicians, physicists, chemists and any other researcher interested in modelling at the nanoscale. The conference opened on a cautionary note, with Tim Myers asking whether you could […]

Nanoparticle synthesis via precipitation from solution

NanoApps

Article written by V. Cregan, CRM Nanotechnology is predicted to play a profound role in the future by impacting a variety of fields such as medicine, renewable energy, industrial production, amongst others. Nanoparticles, small units of matter with dimensions in the range 1-100 nm, lie at the interface of bulk materials and atomic structures, and […]

Nanomath 2016

The third Nanomath conference will be held next week in Toulouse, 27-30 June 2016. While the program is now full, it is still possible to register and attend the meeting.   Details of the conference can be found at Nanomath homepage NANOMATH 2016 Poster

Centre de Recerca Matemàtica Blog

For the remainder of June the ECMI Blog will be under the control of the CRM. Consequently there will be a significant bias towards mathematics in nanotechnology. In the next few days we will publish short articles on nanocrystal growth, nanoparticle evolution (by the Anile prize winner) and also some bad examples of applying mathematics at […]

PhD Grants in Barcelona

The Industrial Mathematics group, at the Centre of Recerca Matematica in Barcelona, are looking for candidates to apply for a PhD grant through the local Barcelona Graduate School of Mathematics. The IM group is primarily interested in modelling nanoscale phenomena, and in particular phase change, crystal growth, fluid flow and heat flow. We collaborate with […]
