Clustering of multivariate Big Data

Clustering is the division of a collection of data into groups, or clusters, such that points in the same cluster have a small distance from one another, while points in different clusters are at a large distance from one another. When the data are not very high dimensional, but are too many to fit in […]

Cancer Treatment via Laser-induced Thermotherapy

Starting with the beginning of this year the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the new project “ProMT”: Prognostic model based online MR-Thermometry for minimally invasive thermoablation to treat liver tumors. This is a cooperation of researchers from TU Kaiserlautern, the Fraunhofer ITWM and the FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg. The modeling of cancer growth and cancer […]

The HyLEF project (Hydrodynamic Limits and Equilibrium Fluctuations: universality from stochastic systems)

The HyLEF project (Hydrodynamic Limits and Equilibrium Fluctuations: universality from stochastic systems) is one of the projects funded by the European Research Council(ERC) in the 2016 edition of the ERC Starting Grants. This is the first ERC grant awarded in Portugal in the field of mathematics and is headed by Patrícia Gonçalves, an associate professor […]

MICADO – First Light Instruments for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT)

by Roland Wagner, RICAM Apart from METIS, our group in Linz is also involved in the development of MICADO, the Multi-AO Imaging Camera for Deep Observations of the E-ELT. The consortium behind MICADO is led by the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics  (MPE). What is MICADO? The name MICADO is well-known in a slightly […]

METIS – First Light Instruments for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT)

by Andreas Obereder, RICAM and MathConsult After the sucessful research project Mathematical Algorithms for E-ELT Adaptive Optics , the Linz Adaptive Optics team is now involved the development of two first light instruments for the E-ELT  In this blog entry, we focus on our contribution to METIS, the Mid-infrared E-ELT Imager and Spectrograph.

SPbPolytech – first university to introduce computational computer code for Airbus

For over a decade Peter the Great Saint Petersburg Polytechnic University and Airbus collaborate on development and deployment of ASRP (Assembly Simulation of Riveting Process) software complex. ASRP is a specific and exceptional software solution with a great deal of complexity. It is said to be the only computer code developed by the University that […]

Problems proposed by Airbus SAS and Powerflute companies

 Optimization of fastener distribution during airframe assembly    One of the problems for ESGI 123 was provided by Airbus and related to the optimization of the wing assembly processing. As nowadays the demand for planes is very high, the company aims to reduce the time of wing production through minor changes in the current technological process. […]

Study Group ESGI-123/BEEs-01

Hi, this is Sergey Lupuleac. Last autumn we hosted a study group ESGI123 (nice number, isn’t it?).It also has a second name BEEs01 (Business Engineering Education Study groups). We are going to present it here in details because it was really great event and we like to recall it once more. First I want to […]

Differential Geometry, Topology of Manifolds, Triple Systems and Physics

Differential geometry and topology of manifolds represent one of the currently most active areas in mathematics, honored by a number of Fields Medals in the recent past to mention only the names of Donaldson, Witten, Jones, Kontsevich and Perelman. The recent vitality of these areas is largely due to interactions with theoretical physics that have […]

Topology Optimization and Risk Management

Efficient design is one of the most important objectives in modern engineering. In a multitude of applications this requires the balancing of cost savings and risk management. In the design of load bearing structures it is the goal to minimize material usage and weight while still ensuring design limits and constraints. Less material in key […]
