The International Conference «The Modern Paradigm of Scientific Knowledge: Relevance and Prospects»
April 4, 2018, young researchers and graduate students from China, Russia, Syria, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Haiti, Denmark, Ghana, Egypt, Yemen, India, Jordan, Iran, Cameroon, China, Côte d'Ivoire, Cuba, Lebanon, Madagascar and other countries of the world met at RUDN at the VI annual International Scientific and Practical Conference «The Modern Paradigm of Scientific Knowledge: Relevance and Prospects», an event conducted by the Department of Foreign Languages of RUDN Agrarian and Technological Institute, where graduate students, young researchers from all over the world, senior students of various specialties and directions of RUDN Agrarian and Technological and Medical Institutes presented reports on the scientific topic of their dissertations, demonstrating an interdisciplinary approach to research in line with the modern paradigm of scientific knowledge. The working languages of the conference were English, Spanish, Chinese, German and French.
Based on the results of the event, a collection of articles is prepared for publication in the publishing house «Languages of the Peoples of the World» with the assignment of ISBN index. The conference collection is also indexed in the database of the RSCI.
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.
Even if a black hole can be described with a mathematical model, it doesn’t mean it exists in reality. Some theoretical models are unstable: though they can be used to run mathematical calculations, from the point of view of physics they make no sense. A physicist from RUDN University developed an approach to finding such instability regions.
Chemists from RUDN University synthesized soluble biopolymers based on chitin from crab shells. Together with palladium, they form effective catalysts for organic reactions, and their nanoparticles can be re-used over ten times.
