BAKING THE CARBON CAKE Homogenisation Applied to the Electrical Calcination of Carbon Materials

By Caoimhe Rooney The metallurgy industry is a gold-mine for mathematical treasures, from partial differential equation models describing crust formation (which notoriously hinders furnace operation), to population balance equations explaining the formation and growth of microsilica particles (which impacts the performance of composite materials). Through the collaboration of the University […]

Using mathematics to realise the potential of a novel soil-based filter.

The Ganges-Brahmaputra Delta is a global hotspot for arsenic groundwater contamination. Naturally occurring arsenic concentrates in water drawn from deep tube wells, creating a major public health issue in West Bengal and Bangladesh, described as the “largest mass poisoning of a population in history”. Arsenic mitigation technologies mostly rely on allowing […]

European Summer School in Modelling, Analysis and Simulation Crime and Image Processing

In this summer school we focus on the mathematical topics of crime and image processing which currently attract a lot of attention both from mathematical research and from real-world applications, but where these two sides are rarely taught together. The summer school will combine a traditional research school that introduces […]
