Industrial Mathematics in Bulgaria. A personal view.

My name is Stanislav Harizanov and I’m currently employed at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences – Institute of Information and Communication Technologies (IICT-BAS) (full part) and Institute of Mathematics and Informatics (IMI-BAS) (part-time position). I received a PhD in Mathematics from Jacobs University Bremen, Germany in 2011 under the guidance of Prof. Peter Oswald. Then, […]

ECMI Special Interest Group: Advancing the design of medical stents

Arterial stents have revolutionised the treatment of coronary heart disease (CHD). Acting as a supporting scaffold, these small mesh devices are now routinely inserted into arteries where the blood flow has become dangerously restricted. Over the past decade, arterial stents have evolved from bare metal scaffolds to polymer coated drug-delivery vehicles and, more recently, sophisticated […]

Co-simulation & UQ within the SIMUROM project

In many applications, coupled problems appear very naturally. For example, Fig.1 depicts a field/circuit problem, where a transformer can be modeled by a partial differential equation (PDE) and an electric circuit subsystem, which can be modeled by differential algebraic equations (DAEs). The coupled system is a PDAE [5]. A semi-discretization in space yields a system […]

How mathematics can help to solve the current water crisis

Population growth, drought and contamination mean that water quality and quantity concerns are one of the largest environmental issues facing the world today. As a result, the race to find new and effective strategies for the production of clean water is now more important than ever. Here in Oxford we have been working with Pall […]

Mathematics in the glass industry

Peter Howell has been working in Oxford on extensional thin layer flows with application to the glass industry for the last 20 years. He first studied the evolution of thin sheets and jets of viscous fluid by taking a mathematical limit where the aspect ratio (the ratio of the thickness to the length or width) is […]

Doctorate in Industrially Focused Mathematical Modelling – InFoMM CDT

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Industrially Focused Mathematical Modelling (InFoMM), is based at the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford. This unique 4 year programme facilitates the training of doctoral students in real world mathematical problems. Roxana Feier writes about her experiences so far: “I am a second year doctoral student in […]
