COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is one of the largest pan-European scientific programs, founded in 1971, with more than 40-year successful history of supporting scientific and technical projects, providing scientists with the opportunity to establish and develop interdisciplinary cooperation in all fields of science and technology. COST Action projects have been implemented for 4 years and during this time forming scientific and technical networks with regular meetings of researchers, who exchange experience and do creative work.
In March 2018, by the decision of COST headquarters in Brussels, the Institute of Applied Mathematics of the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia joined the project «Integrated Wireless Networks of 5G and Higher Generations», which in COST Action CA15104 is called "Inclusive radio communication networks for 5G and beyond" (IRACON). The project is designed to provide breakthrough scientific developments and revolutionary approaches in the technologies of networks and radio access systems to strengthen the potential of science in research and innovation in Europe.
May 30 - June 1, 2018, Director of RUDN Institute of Applied Mathematics, professor K.Samuylov and associate professor Yu.V. Gaydamaka took part in the 7th meeting of the CAST IRACON Steering Committee and the 7th meeting of the working group members of the project in Cartagena, Spain. RUDN contributed a project «Resource Allocation and Sharing for Heterogeneous Data Collection over Conventional 3GPP LTE and Emerging NB-IoT Technologies». The project is approved by the Working Group # 3 (WG3) COST IRACON and recommended for inclusion in the project final document.
A RUDN chemist has obtained a new compound — a dumbbell-shaped phosphate-bridged molybdenum cluster. The cluster accelerates the reaction of the formation of sulfides from oxides and can be used in pharmaceutical and cosmetic manufacturing.
Mathematicians from RUDN University have studied the properties of compositional operators in spaces with mixed Lebesgue norms. It will help describe the diffusion of liquids in materials with cracks and in porous materials. Such spaces are also useful for obtaining estimates for solutions to the Navier-Stokes equation.
A biophysicist from RUDN University and his colleagues modelled the molecular dynamics of growth of microtubules, the most important elements of cell activity. The researchers have built a model for the interaction of microtubule subunits, which takes into account their internal and external connections. The results will help form a more complete model of the dynamic instability of microtubules. It will allow choosing chemical agents for the treatment of certain diseases, including neoplasms and neurodegenerative pathologies.
