The Whole is more than the Sum of its Bricks

The AAO team of the Industrial Mathematics Institute of the JKU Linz has gained profound experience in the fields of adaptive optics during the ELT-project with ESO. Based on this expertise, the AAO team is engaged in the SFB-project “Tomography across the Scales”, especially in the sub-project “P5 – Tomography in Astrophysics”. The focus lies […]

SFB Tomography Across the Scales: Quantitative Optical Imaging from Single Molecules to Stars

Technologies which provide insight into the structure of biological/human material repeatedly have led to medical breakthroughs. In 1979, Allan MacLeod Cormack and Godfrey Houndsfield won the Nobel Prize in “Physiology and Medicine” for the first development of a CT-Scanner. The ability to inspect the internal three-dimensional structure of the human body by tomography has revolutionized […]

Telescopes and Pyramids

My name is Victoria Hutterer and I am currently working as a member of the Austrian Adaptive Optics Group in Industrial Mathematics at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz. My research is mainly concerned with wavefront reconstruction from pyramid wavefront sensor data in astronomical Adaptive Optics. Adaptive Optics: Due to diffraction of light and turbulences […]

Supplementary mathematical education in Russian schools

  (A. Smirnova, https://www.herzen.spb.ru/news/08-02-2016_1/)  “The share of male students in school is integer number percent from total number of students. After New Year vacation a boy and two girls have entered the school as new students. But the share of male students in school remains integer number percent. Please prove that total number of students […]

SPbPU Researchers Proposed a New Channel Coding Method for 5G Wireless Systems

Russian Federation: a new channel coding method for the fifth generation wireless systems (5G) has been proposed by the researchers of Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU). The task of channel coding is to introduce some redundancy into the data so that it can be used to cope with errors, which occur during transmission […]
