Bath’s Institute for Mathematical Innovation: model evolution

How can universities better release the potential that mathematics holds as an ‘underpinning technology’? How can we remove the common obstacles that hinder collaborations with external organisations? How do interdisciplinary projects and collaborations themselves benefit mathematics and statistics? These questions are particularly pertinent at the moment due to the review […]

Students Project: Modeling X-ray tomography using low power lamps

In the occasion of celebrating 100 years of Radon transform, we were asked to model X-ray tomography experiments in a seminar room. The examples took place in the Computational Science Center (CSC) at the University of Vienna, Austria, under the supervision of Otmar Scherzer. The tomographic system was replaced by […]
