Summer School in Mathematics at the Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE Budapest)

The Institute of Mathematics of the Eötvös University is organizing a one week long summer school in mathematics entitled “Higher mathematics through problem solving”. Although mathematics is much more than just going through a series of drill problems — posing new questions, building new theories, applying the existing tools to other areas of science are […]

A new approach to understanding human behaviour

My name is Susan Fennell and I am a first year PhD student. My area of research is social psychology, the study of how a person’s feelings and behaviour are affected by society. Up until recently, it was thought that a person’s behaviour is affected by the norms present in society but that they do […]

Special Interest Group on Numerical Weather Prediction

Although all of us are interested in the daily or annual changes in the weather, their forecasting or even modelling is a challenging task which needs the use of various mathematical ideas. The weather we are experiencing is the combined effect of the atmospehere’s dynamics on several scales and other physical and chemical phenomena like […]

A new ECMI SIG: Math for the Digital Factory

Background Around one in ten of all enterprises in the EU-27’s non-financial business economy were classified to manufacturing in 2009, a total of 2.0 million enterprises. The manufacturing sector employed 31 million persons in 2009, generated 5.812 billion Euro of turnover and 1.400 billion Euro of value added. (source: Eurostat). Accordingly, manufacturing plays an important […]
