Modelling and Simulation in Life and Materials Sciences (MSLMS) group at Basque Center for Applied Mathematics – BCAM

by Mario Fernández-Pendás, Simone Rusconi, Elena Akhmatskaya, BCAM In the recent decades the widespread availability of powerful computers allowed to numerically solve problems arising in Materials Sciences, Biosciences, Geophysics, Economics, that will eventually contribute to public health, medicine, industry, environment and society.  Addressing these tasks has been the mission of Modelling and Simulation in Life and […]

From Rayleigh-Bérnard convection to atmospheric vertical vortices

By Henar Herrero (Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha), in collaboration with Damián Castaño y María Cruz Navarro. There are different atmospheric phenomena with the common factor of vortex dynamics, from small events such as dust devils (figure 1) and tornadoes, to large events as hurricanes and cyclones [4,5]. Thermal convection is a relevant process involved in […]

Non-Fourier Heat Conduction

Fourier’s law has been used to successfully describe heat transport for over 200 years. However, it is known that it leads to inaccuracies at extremely short time scales or at very small length scales. For example, experiments of laser heating of ultrathin layers or simulations of heat transport in solids using molecular dynamics show dramatic […]

ECMI prize distribution

As a tradition of ECMI conferences the Anile and Wacker Prizes were awarded during the opening ceremony. The Anile prize, honouring Professor Angelo Marcello Anile, (1948-2007) of the University of Catania, is given to a young researcher for an excellent PhD thesis in industrial mathematics. The prize was given to Peter Gangl, from Johannes Kepler Universität […]
