RUDN mathematicians have created a software package for solving nonlinear differential equations

RUDN mathematicians have created a universal package of computer programs for the study and solution of complex nonlinear differential equations and their systems. The development will be useful for hydrodynamics, gas dynamics, mechanics, elementary particle physics, plasma physics and elasticity theory. The article was published in the journal Computer Physics Communications.

Many processes in physics are mathematically described by partial differential equations — for example, string vibrations or heat transfer from one part of a solid to another. RUDN mathematicians have created a package of tools for the analysis of such equations and their systems. Previously, triangular decomposition methods were used to solve such differential equations: a complex equation was sequentially divided into simpler parts. The authors took a different approach - the Thomas decomposition method. During the tests, he showed superiority over previously used methods.

RUDN mathematicians also gave examples of application of the software package in practice by solving the Navier-Stokes and Burgers equations for an incompressible fluid that underlies hydrodynamics 

The software of RUDN mathematicians will expand the base of existing algorithms and simplify the work of specialists in physics, physical chemistry and information technology. The created tool package will help to find solutions of differential equations and their systems faster and with greater accuracy compared to previously existing methods.

Biologists from RUDN University discovered the secret of flaxseed oil with long shelf life

Biologists from RUDN University working together with their colleagues from the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Flax studied the genes that determine the fatty acid composition in flaxseed oil and identified polymorphisms in six of them. The team also found out what gene variations could extend the shelf life of flaxseed oil. This data can be used to improve the genetic selection of new flax breeds. The results were published in the BMC Plant Biology journal.

A Chemist from RUDN University Developed a New Method for Combating Antibiotic Resistance in Microbes

Bacteria in biofilms are 1,000 times more resistant to antibiotics, disinfectants, mechanical treatment, and other types of stress. A chemist from RUDN University suggested a method to prevent the formation of biofilms and reduce the resistance of bacteria to antimicrobial medications. This might help increase the efficiency of antibacterial treatment in the food industry, medicine, and agriculture.

Chemists from RUDN University used crab shells to improve palladium catalysts

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.
