RealForAll: Real-time measurements and forecasting for successful prevention and management of seasonal allergies in Croatia-Serbia cross-border region (project ID: HR-RS151)

Exposure to aeroallergens is associated with allergic rhinitis and asthma that significantly reduce quality of life and have a notable economic impact on society in the Croatia-Serbia cross-border region (Figure 1). Numerous sources of allergenic airborne pollen are present in the region resulting in exposure to strong allergens (e.g. birch trees, grass, common ragweed) on […]

New MSc at the University of Oxford – ‘OMMS’

The new Oxford Master’s in Mathematical Sciences (or ‘OMMS’) will admit its first cohort of students in 2018-19. This master’s degree spans interdisciplinary applications of mathematics as well as recognizing fundamental questions and themes.  Students can choose from many different pathways, tailoring the programme to their individual interests and requirements. Examples of pathways include: data […]

Modelling deep-sea oil spills

(by Rachel Philip.) In a deep-sea oil spill, a broken pipe near the seabed (containing a mixture of oil and water) can result in the release of a high-speed jet into the surrounding ocean. The jet’s shearing motion will typically cause the oil to break up into smaller droplets, which are then more easily dispersed […]

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 […]
