Conformal mappings, numerical analysis and mathematical modeling

Antti Rasila Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis Aalto University Conformal mappings are a class of functions studied in the classical complex analysis, which are defined by the property that they preserve angles between smooth curves. The basic properties of the complex multiplication along with the chain rule give another important characterization of conformal mappings: […]

New MSc at the University of Oxford – ‘OMMS’

The new Oxford Master’s in Mathematical Sciences (or ‘OMMS’) will admit its first cohort of students in 2018-19. This master’s degree spans interdisciplinary applications of mathematics as well as recognizing fundamental questions and themes.  Students can choose from many different pathways, tailoring the programme to their individual interests and requirements. Examples of pathways include: data […]

Modelling deep-sea oil spills

(by Rachel Philip.) In a deep-sea oil spill, a broken pipe near the seabed (containing a mixture of oil and water) can result in the release of a high-speed jet into the surrounding ocean. The jet’s shearing motion will typically cause the oil to break up into smaller droplets, which are then more easily dispersed […]

Slower than usual transport in porous media

In the last decade a number of researchers have found that in some materials (such as zeolite or building bricks) the moisture diffusion follows a slower than usual pace and thus its transport becomes subdiffusive. There is a wealth of literature on the experimental side of the subdiffusion, but its crucial nonlinear aspects are described […]

Ulam Computer Simulations Workshop. Challenges & Opportunities in Molecular Simulations

Ulam Computer Simulations Workshop ( was held at the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv on 21-24 June 2017, 70 years from the invention of the Monte Carlo method – nowadays widely used to solve problems in various fields of physical and life sciences, engineering, finance, statistics, mathematics, etc. The conference was organized by Institute […]

Dynamics of the capillary rise: a peculiar occurrence of oscillations

My name is Mateusz Świtała and I am at my fifth year on Faculty of Pure and Applied Mathematics, Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Poland. My subject of study is Applied Mathematics and I am also giving tutorials in mathematical software programming. This work with younger students is very rewarding and inspiring for further […]
