RUDN expert participates in the 59th Convention of the Association for International Studies in San Francisco
April 4-7, 2018, Head of RUDN Department of Theory and History of International Relations, Assoc.prof. D.Degterev, PhD, took part in the 59th Convention of the International Studies Association in San Francisco, USA, delivering a report «Russia as an international donor: soviet legacy vs conventional pragmatism», attending several conference sessions, holding talks with scientific editors of the leading scientific publications of the world discussing publication of RUDN academics’ monographs.
The Association for International Studies was founded in 1959, and is one of the oldest interdisciplinary associations for the study of international, transnational and global problems. The Association brings together over 7,000 members from around the world, including academics, practitioners, policy experts, private sector workers and independent researchers. The 59th Convention Convention was the most numerous - about 5 thousand researchers took part in more than 1,300 sessions. The next convention will be held in March 2019, in Toronto, Canada.
A team of chemists from RUDN University synthesized new organosilicon compounds containing terbium and europium ions. These complexes have an unusual cage-like crystal structure that contains four metal ions. The team was the first to study the magnetic and photophysical properties of such compounds and to observe their magnetic phase transition and luminescence properties.
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.
