I-BiDaaS – Industrial-driven Big Data as a self-service solution

Faculty of Sciences at the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, participates as a project partner in the European Union’s H2020 research and innovation project I-BiDaaS – Industrial-driven Big Data as a self-service solution (2018-2020). The I-BiDaaS project includes 13 partner institutions overall, is coordinated by FORTH, Heraklion, Greece, and proposes an end-to-end solution for Big […]

1st Danish-Norwegian Study Group with Industry

European Study Group with Industry (ESGI) is Europe’s leading workshop bringing together mathematicians and industrial companies. These week-long workshops have been held annually since 1968 and were previously known as the Oxford Study Groups with Industry, where they attracted leading mathematicians to work on industrial problems. The first ESGI in Norway was organized by mathematicians […]

Mathematical modelling of nanocrystal growth

  Nanoparticles are units of matter with dimensions between 1 and 100 nanometers (nm) that have gained a lot of interest during the last decades, due to their wide variety of applications in biomedicine, environmental-related problems, electronics and catalysis. They have unique chemical, physical, mechanical, and optical properties that naturally occur at that scale that […]

ECMI 2018 Budapest was opened

We are happy to announce that ECMI 2018 has been opened by the president of ECMI. In the opening ceremony the chair of the Scientific Committee, László Monostori greeted the participants. Péter Simon, the chair of the Organizing Committee emphasized that the conference focuses on various highlighted fields of industrial and applied mathematics, such as […]

Comparison of statistical techniques for the analysis of ”omics” data

This report refers to a project which has been assigned to a group of students in the MSc in Mathematics at Università degli Studi di Milano during a modeling seminar, in the academic year 2017/18. They faced the following problem. A group of biochemists in the University of Milan conducted an experiment testing the effect […]

A Markov Chain approach to evaluate the impact of CAP Greening on land use in Lombardy region

A recent reform has redesigned Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) contents over the programming period 2015-2020, introducing important changes in the funding strategies, called “Greening”, which reward “agricultural practices beneficial for the climate and the environment” (EU regulation 1307/2013), namely i) arable crops diversification, ii) maintenance of permanent grassland and iii) ecological focus areas (EFA). These […]

Inferring the Structure of Galaxies with Deep Convolutional Neural Networks

The popular and beautiful galaxy images provided from telescopes like the NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope or the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, enabled astronomers to a plethora of studies that greatly improved our knowledge of the Universe and its evolution. In particular the structure of the galaxies can be effectively characterized from their surface light profile […]

DYMARA – A dynamic manikin with fiber-based modeling of skeletal muscles

This project aims at the development of a fiber-based modeling approach for the behavior of muscles within the musculoskeletal system. Supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, three departments of the Fraunhofer ITWM Kaiserslautern, TU Kaiserslautern and FAU Erlangen join forces in this project, along with the industrial partners fleXstructures GmbH and […]

Flow of Blood: Coupling hyperbolic PDEs with switched DAEs

Modeling the flow of blood in the human circulatory system is a challenging task involving many mathematical aspects. In this joined project of the TU Kaiserslautern and the University of Groningen funded by the DFG SPP1962 Priority Program  we study hyperbolic partial differential equations (PDEs) with boundary conditions driven by switched differential algebraic equations (DAEs). The […]

Shape Optimization for Energy-efficient High Temperature Processes

The energy transition will only be a success story if the consumption of fossil-fuel can be significantly reduced. In Germany, 40 % of the heat consumption takes place in the industrial sector and thereof 90 % are used for process heat. Since high temperature processes go normally hand in hand with extreme thermal losses, it […]
