Irish & EU industry to benefit from Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) investment in Centres for Research Training

Ireland is getting ready to train the next generation of researchers in the area of Data Science and ICT.  The Irish government through Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) is investing approximately €80M to establish a number of Centres for Research Training (CRTs) in Ireland. These CRTs will provide cohorts of academically outstanding future research leaders with […]

139 European Study Group with Industry

Instruments for the World’s largest Telescope

contributed by Roland Wagner, RICAM The practical needs for algorithms and software developed within the projects of the Austrian Adaptive Optics Team (AAO-Team) at the Industrial mathematics Institute at JKU Linz and at RICAM arise from the construction of the World’s largest telescope, the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT). The ELT will be equipped with several […]

Coming to Linz…not such an Inverse Idea

My name is Kemal Raik and I am currently working on the FWF funded project on nonlinear heuristic regularisation for astronomical imaging at the Industrial Mathematics Institute in the Johannes Kepler University Linz. I am originally from London in the United Kingdom and did my bachelor studies in Aberdeen and then went on to attain […]

The Whole is more than the Sum of its Bricks

The AAO team of the Industrial Mathematics Institute of the JKU Linz has gained profound experience in the fields of adaptive optics during the ELT-project with ESO. Based on this expertise, the AAO team is engaged in the SFB-project “Tomography across the Scales”, especially in the sub-project “P5 – Tomography in Astrophysics”. The focus lies […]

SFB Tomography Across the Scales: Quantitative Optical Imaging from Single Molecules to Stars

Technologies which provide insight into the structure of biological/human material repeatedly have led to medical breakthroughs. In 1979, Allan MacLeod Cormack and Godfrey Houndsfield won the Nobel Prize in “Physiology and Medicine” for the first development of a CT-Scanner. The ability to inspect the internal three-dimensional structure of the human body by tomography has revolutionized […]

UT researchers help the Estonian Tax and Customs Board to forecast Estonian economic activity

Researchers at the Center of IT Impact Studies at University of Tartu created an application that produces short-term economic forecasts 1 to 12 months into the future based on real time tax declarations of all Estonian companies.   According to the Estonian Tax and Customs Board (ETCB) 98% of Estonian tax revenue comes through voluntary […]

SFI Starting Investigator Research Grant

Science Foundation Ireland is seeking applications for the Starting Investigator Research Grant (SIRG) SIRG  aims to support excellent postdoctoral researchers and others who are yet to hold an independent research post in taking the initial steps towards a fully independent research career. The SIRG award provides an opportunity for excellent early-career-stage investigators to carry out […]

Shape optimization to minimize failure probability (and material consumption)

Movie: Shape flow for a 2D rod towards optimal reliability.   As three working groups (Optimization, High Performance Computing and Stochastics) at the IMACM in Wuppertal, we develop probabilistic shape optimization models for different failure mechanisms, notably for low cycle fatigue (LCF) problems, with gradient based methods. Low cycle fatigue is a surface driven failure […]
