Comparison of statistical techniques for the analysis of ”omics” data

This report refers to a project which has been assigned to a group of students in the MSc in Mathematics at Università degli Studi di Milano during a modeling seminar, in the academic year 2017/18. They faced the following problem. A group of biochemists in the University of Milan conducted an experiment testing the effect […]

A Markov Chain approach to evaluate the impact of CAP Greening on land use in Lombardy region

A recent reform has redesigned Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) contents over the programming period 2015-2020, introducing important changes in the funding strategies, called “Greening”, which reward “agricultural practices beneficial for the climate and the environment” (EU regulation 1307/2013), namely i) arable crops diversification, ii) maintenance of permanent grassland and iii) ecological focus areas (EFA). These […]

Stochastic Modelling of Cold Spray Coatings Microstructure

Modern materials manufacturing has evolved toward a better control and optimization at the microscopic scale. Hence, microstructures commonly exhibit complex morphologies mixing various materials including carbon fibers arrangements into polymer matrix. The physical and mechanical features of heterogeneous materials at the macroscopic scale are largely dictated by phenomena appearing at the microscopic level. In this […]

Numerical models and homogenization to study the sensitivity of energetic materials: effect of damage and microstructure

Shock sensitivity is often studied in order to improve the safety of energetic materials (i.e., explosives). Numerous studies have shown that the former is sensitive to microstructural characteristics. However, the exact mechanisms responsible for the interplay between mechanical damage, microstructure heterogeneities (grains shape, intra or extra-granular effects) during initiation have not been fully understood. The […]

A new Tenure track at the Centre for Mathematical Morphology

My name is Samy Blusseau and I started a Tenure track at the Centre for Mathematical Morphology (CMM) of Mines ParisTech in March. I had already done a one year postdoc at the CMM since February 2017, jointly with the LTCI lab of Télécom ParisTech, under the supervision of Jesus Angulo, Santiago Velasco-Forero, Isabelle Bloch […]

The Era of Mathematics – Review Findings on Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences Published

A new report was launched recently at the House of Lords; the Era of Mathematics – an Independent Review of Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematics “We live in the era of mathematics. Its influence permeates economic and social activity and its influence and impact are profound. Yet its role is not well understood, we are not […]

MACSI wins a Knowledge Transfer Ireland Research Impact Award for a Second Year in a Row!

A Project led by MACSI PhD Student Kevin Brosnan with Drs David O’Sullivan and Kevin Burke was awarded the 2018 Knowledge Transfer Ireland Research Consultancy Impact Award. The judges found that  Consultancy Impact Award winners, ‘University of Limerick and Xtract 360 Ltd’ were a compelling case for how a company can achieve value through accessing short term advice and expertise […]
