Region Värmland and Swedish Forest Agency have provided us with two very interesting practical questions. Now, it is the turn of applied mathematicians to address them during the MiMM Day (#mimmday). For details on the problems, as well as registration link to the event, see https://www.kau.se/MIMM-day
From 16peope present, I could “screen shot” 12 🙂 That’s really nice to have so many of you in this course!
Last Friday I did speak about the concept of Mathematics with Industry Day. See here my slides ErasmusDays_ITEM-MiMM.
Thank you Jessica Jaynes and Bogdan Suceava for giving me the opportunity to speak about “Evolution of social masses: application of modeling with measures to pedestrian flows” to you and your colleagues! It was a pleasure meeting you online Friday night (11pm in Sweden, 2 pm in California) – a quite unusual timeslot to deliver a scientific talk.
“Mathematics with Industry Day” (MiMM Day 2020) will take place for the 4th time in a row in Karlstad (Sweden) on Dec. 15, 2020. We are asking potentially interested companies to send in their problem suggestions (asap, before Nov. 1st, 2020).
Groups of applied mathematicians (“young and old”) are going to deal with selected industrial questions during 1 day.
I have discovered these days that H. Nyquist, whose name I have recognised in connection with Nyquist-Shannon theorem and with stability questions for differential equations, was born in Nilby, close by Karlstad. I would really love to find out more on him and his life prior the emigration to US as well as afterwards. Have you some hints join this and related matters?
Yesterday, I gave my 1st lecture of the “homogenization course” via zoom. I am happy to say that I never had a more international audience! To be precise, I had 8 people online from 7 different countries! I think I would have never succeeded to have such audience in the more classical face-to-face teaching.
Correction: Japanese participants from Kanazawa University, Japan, have joined our international pool of graduate students!!! Welcome Kazunori, Masato, ….
A new (academic) year is about to start off. New challenges are in view, as well as hopes and great expectations… Good luck everyone.
To facilitate the exchange ideas, our research group has joined slack: http://mathsmultisca-cpo3547.slack.com
At this stage, this is only an experiment in communication. Hopefully this works well. Thanks Andrea for suggesting it!
Yesterday evening we (AG Böhm) succeeded to meet on zoom. We shared a couple of emotional moments together, with a look back to our past days and with glimpses to the near future… We should do it again.
