Leading mathematicians of the world to meet at RUDN
13-20 August, 2017, RUDN Department of applied mathematics brings together more than 300 mathematicians at the VIII DFDE-2017 (The International Conference on Differential and Functional Differential Equations-2017).
74 scientists, among them Niels Abel Prize laureates and Fields Medal holders have already applied The Fields Medal and the Abel Prize have often been described as the mathematician's «Nobel Prize».
In the frame of the conference young researchers will present their results in mathematic and interdisciplinary studies at the international master-class «Space-time dynamic systems». The participants’ plenary reports will be broadcast live on the Internet on RUDN official web-site and the conference web-site. Sections of the conference:
- Ordinary differential equations;
- Dynamic systems;
- Partial differential equations;
- Semigroup of operators;
- Nonlocal space-time systems;
- Functional differential equations;
The conference is co-organized by Steklov Mathematic Institute and Lomonosov MSU.
The first DFDE conference took place in 1994, more than 100 mathematicians from 11 countries took part. Starting from 1999, the conference has been held every 3 years. In 2014, for the second time in history the conference, which gathered mathematicians from 25 countries, was recognized as the satellite of ICM (Seoul, Korea, 13-21 August, 2014). Reporting at ICM is considered one of the highest recognitions in the mathematic community. At DFDE-2014 14 plenary speakers of the Congress of different years took part, more than 200 reports were presented. Over 180 people participated on-line.
Un profesor de RUDN University desarrolló un modelo computacional que describe completamente el daño que ocurre en la carrocería de automóviles por fatiga de materiales. El experimento computacional demostró que en carreteras irregulares, la velocidad baja provoca daños más graves en la carrocería que la velocidad promedio. Este descubrimiento ayudará a evaluar con mayor precisión la resistencia de los vehículos a las cargas.
A research team from RUDN University developed an algorithm to help large groups of people make optimal decisions in a short time. They confirmed the efficiency of their model using the example of the market at which the outbreak of COVID-19 began. The model helped the administration and sellers agree on closing the market and reach a consensus about the sums of compensations in just three steps.
A team of chemists from RUDN University suggested a universal method to synthesize thienoindolizine derivatives. Because of their special properties, these substances can be used to manufacture antibacterial and antitumor drugs, as well as new materials for optoelectronics.
