115th European Study Group with Industry (ESGI)

posted Oct 5, 2015, 2:06 AM by Grup EDMA   [ updated May 31, 2016, 2:55 AM ]

ESGIs are week-long problem solving workshops which provide a unique opportunity for industrial scientists to work alongside academic mathematicians on problems of direct industrial relevance. The ESGIs first started in Oxford in 1968, there are now 5-7 meetings held annually in different European countries as well as many others throughout the world. They are an internationally recognised method of technology transfer between academic mathematicians and industry. 

At the meeting in Barcelona we expect to work on 3-4 problems, employing the expertise of 20-30 academics. 

There will be a limited number of grants for PhD and post-doctoral fellows to attend. For any enquiries please contact a member of the organising committee listed below. 
Further information on study groups in general (their format, benefits, goals etc) may be found at the Math in Industry website: It also contains a repository of the reports on the problems from many of these meetings.

Esther Barrabés at Boston University

posted Jul 26, 2013, 12:54 AM by Grup EDMA   [ updated Jul 21, 2014, 1:08 PM ]

Esther Barrabés is currently visiting the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of Boston University from the 1st of July until de 23rd of December. She is working on a project in collaboration with Glenn R. Hall. The project is framed in the field of Celestial Mechanics and it is twofold. The first problem consists in to look at exo-planetary systems where large planets have been discovered to see if there are likely places for smaller plantes. The second problem consists in detecting among the population of NEO (Near Earth Objects) in the Solar System, those that can be more hazardous. Both problems, although very different, are addressed from a similar perspective: the use of variational methods consideting two-body dynamics plus perturbations.
