Battery modelling in Barcelona

  Barcelona: the place to do maths in shorts When I visit Barcelona I stand out for two reasons. Firstly, as a Canadian, I have a non-European accent and secondly, I’m the only person around me wearing shorts in the 16 C Spanish winter. The shorts are also largely due to the fact of my […]

Earthquakes in Barcelona: How big are the biggest earthquakes?

It has been known since the 1950s that the number of earthquakes of large magnitude follows the law of Gutenberg and Richter: for a region (any) and a time interval (sufficient) the probability distribution of the magnitude of earthquakes will be exponential (decreasing) , with many small earthquakes and (fortunately) few large ones. The simplicity […]

Industrial Maths in Barcelona (and Limerick)

Over the next 2 weeks we will showcase various research projects in Spain, with an obvious focus on Barcelona and a less obvious focus on Limerick. This is due to a number of recent exchanges between researchers from CRM and MACSI. Also, U. Limerick recently hosted the 128th ESGI and so we expect various contributions […]

Nanomath 2016

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

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 […]

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 […]
