Mathematics at the service of the heart

iHEART, that is “an integrated heart model for the simulation of the cardiac function”, is an attempt to create a complete mathematical model of the human heart, which includes the electrical, mechanical and fluid-dynamic processes from the cell scale to the organ scale. The project has been funded with an […]

A space adventure for MOX

The MOX Laboratory (https://mox.polimi.it/) is participating in a Joint Programme between Politecnico di Milano and ASI (Italian Space Agency) (www.asi.it)  covering different aspects of space technologies. In particular, the involvement of the Laboratory focuses on the development of integrated physical and statistical models for the analysis of satellite data. The objective […]

Shape Optimization of an Electron Gun

S-DALINAC (Superconducting-DArmstadt-LINear-ACcelerator) is a superconducting electron accelerator at TU Darmstadt, running since 1991. It was initially constructed as a twice-recirculating accelerator with a maximum energy of 130 MeV in continuous wave (cw) operation. In 2016 it has been converted into a thrice-recirculating accelerator, see here. For the next upgrade an […]

Yield Estmation Using Surrogate Modelling in Industry

Most manufacturing processes suffer from small deviations, which may lead to rejections of some products due to malfunctioning. In this context, malfunctioning is commonly understood as violating a given performance feature specification. In order to quantify the impact of the uncertainty one defines the yield as the percentage of realizations […]

Bembel Project – A Boundary Element Method Based Engineering Library

The boundary element method (BEM) or method of moments (MoM) is a common approach for the solution of partial differential equations (PDEs) in engineering applications such as acoustic and electromagnetic scattering problems in homogeneous media. It is accepted in industry and there are many free and proprietary implementations. Bembel’s logo […]

Efficient numerical quadrature for the boundary elements method with application to electrical machines

Nowadays, the design with regard to efficiency and reliability is a major task in the development of electrical machines. Therefore, numerical simulations play an increasingly important role. Due to many favorable properties, the finite element method (FEM) is well established for simulating low-frequency electrical engineering applications, e.g. with nonlinear material […]

Mathematical competitions for university students

Hi, this is Artem Eliseev again and today I would like to say some words about mathematical competitions for students. We’ve already written about supplementary activities in mathematics, which take place in Saint-Petersburg (https://ecmiindmath.org/2018/02/09/supplementary-mathematical-education-in-russian-schools/), but only activities for high school students were discussed. Of course, studies at university are completely […]

Using machine learning to predict materials’ properties

Researchers from Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) in collaboration with colleagues from Southern Federal University and Indian Institute of Technology-Madras (IIT Madras) suggested using machine learning methods to predict the properties of artificial sapphire crystals. It is a unique material widely used in microelectronics, optics, and electronics. The […]
