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 […]

Students Project: Modeling X-ray tomography using low power lamps

In the occasion of celebrating 100 years of Radon transform, we were asked to model X-ray tomography experiments in a seminar room. The examples took place in the Computational Science Center (CSC) at the University of Vienna, Austria, under the supervision of Otmar Scherzer. The tomographic system was replaced by an overhead projector, modeling the […]

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 […]

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. […]
