Here we would like to present the second problem proposed by city of Koblenz and called “Modelling Departure Traffic”. Loreley Open-Air Theatre is located on the Lorelei rock in St. Goarshausen in Germany. It is a popular location for concerts and music festivals with a capacity of about 15,000 people. It is possible to get […]

Study Group 2nd BEES Group – ESGI 134. Problem from Koblenz-Touristik

This year our BEEs project (see the previous one) was continued with a very nice study group in Koblenz. Twelve participants from St. Petersburg took part in the event. Here we would like to present couple of problems considered there.  The first one was proposed by Koblenz-Touristik and called “The flood prediction problem”. The famous […]

Shape optimization to minimize failure probability (and material consumption)

Movie: Shape flow for a 2D rod towards optimal reliability.   As three working groups (Optimization, High Performance Computing and Stochastics) at the IMACM in Wuppertal, we develop probabilistic shape optimization models for different failure mechanisms, notably for low cycle fatigue (LCF) problems, with gradient based methods. Low cycle fatigue is a surface driven failure […]

Solving Differential Equations in Mixed Reality

Anders Logg, Carl Lundholm, Magne Nordaas Department of Mathematical Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg We develop an application for solving Poisson’s equation with the finite element method using Microsoft’s mixed reality glasses HoloLens.  The idea with the HoloLens application is to set up and solve a Poisson problem in a real […]

Finnish-Chinese eLearning on Mathematical Modeling: modules on PDE’s and ODE’s.

    Mathematical modeling and simulation form a crucial method for applying mathematics in practice. With the development of computers and software it has grown into a pivotal R&D-method throughout science. The importance of modeling has been internationally recognized and it has been included into the curricula of many universities. The project on “International e-Learning […]

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 […]

Mathematics for Industry Network – 2 years on

As the Mathematics for Industry Network (MI-NET) prepared to launch their 3rd year of events we considered it timely to reflect back on our achievements. Mathematics for Industry Network (MI-NET) was set up as a COST Action in May 2015. Our main objective is to facilitate more effective widespread application of mathematics to all industrial sectors, by […]
