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 […]

Sébastien Drouyer: PhD at the CMM, MINES ParisTech

My name is Sébastien Drouyer and I am currently finishing a PhD thesis in the Center for Mathematical Morphology (CMM) at MINES Paristech, under the supervision of Serge Beucher and Michel Bilodeau. The PhD is financed by IFP Energies Nouvelles where I also work with Maxime Moreaud and Loïc Sorbier. Mathematical morphology is a field […]

Analysis and Optimization of Polymer Spin Packs

Spin packs are widely used for the production of synthetic fibers and nonwoven materials. In a typical spin pack polymer melt enters through a small inflow tube. Within a cavity the polymer is distributed over the whole cross-sectional area of the device before it passes several layers of filters. Finally, the material is pressed through […]

An Applied PhD at the Fraunhofer ITWM

My name is Stephan Wackerle and I am a PhD student in a cooperation between the Department for Flow and Material Simulation (SMS) at the Fraunhofer Institute for industrial Mathematics (ITWM) and the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. This cooperation is a great opportunity to gain already whilst the PhD-studies a lot of insights into the […]

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 […]

AXA Driver Telematics Analysis Kaggle competition

This student’s project is based on telematics data provide by AXA for a Kaggle completion, and was supervised by Conceição Amado, Prof, Math Department, IST. The objective of this work is to develop an algorithm that allows profiling for each driver, namely: knowing if a driver makes short or long trips; If attends more curvy […]
