## The Era of Mathematics – Review Findings on Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences Published

A new report was launched recently at the House of Lords; the Era of Mathematics – an Independent Review of Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematics “We live in the era of mathematics. Its influence permeates economic and social activity and its influence and impact are profound. Yet its role is not well understood, we are not […]

## Moisture measurement problem

By Prof Mark McGuinness A chemical processing company brought an interesting challenge to the European Study Group with Industry held last year at the University of Limerick. They want to measure the moisture content of a crushed mineral ore in real time, on the conveyor belt as it is offloaded. The amount of water present […]

## Forecasting Energy Demand using Time Series Analysis

Joseph O’Brien and Eoin Mooney A time series is an ordered sequence of values of a variable at equally spaced times. Some business metrics naturally lend themselves to time series analysis, one of which is the consumption of electricity that is measured at half hourly time points. In this blog post, we will describe a […]
