RUDN University Professor Suggested how to Clean Up Space Debris

A specialist in spacecraft movement control analyzed the process of placing vehicle stages, boosters, and other space debris into the so-called disposal orbit and suggested cleaning lower orbits up with a spacecraft that has modules with engine units on board. These modules will attach to space debris objects and move them away. As for the geostationary orbit, a preferable way to clean it up would be a towing spacecraft that transports space debris objects into the disposal orbit.

A Biologist from RUDN University Found Sex Differences in Inflammatory Reactions in Rat Pups

A biologist from RUDN University studied the development of the immune response in prepubertal male and female animals. According to her, the severity and mortality of infectious and inflammatory diseases at this age depend not on the sex hormones, but mainly on the chromosome set or karyotype.

Chemist Benjamin List: the Nobel Prize in chemistry and a visit to RUDN University

October 6, the Nobel Committee announced the 2021 Nobel Prize Winners in Chemistry. They were scientists Benjamin List (Germany) and David Macmillan (USA) for new methods of molecular synthesis. RUDN chemists know Professor Liszt personally — in 2019, the researcher came to participate in the university conference.

25 - 29 Oct
International online workshop "Mathematical Modelling in Biomedicine"
The scientific program of the workshop will include talks on different topics on mathematical modeling in biomedicine. The participation of leading foreign specialists and well-known Russian scientists is expected. The successful holding of this event will increase the recognition of RUDN University, mathematicians from RUDN University, and their results both at the Russian and international levels.

Seminar “Modeling of a rotating detonation engine combustion chamber”
A 3D numerical modeling of a rotation detonation engine combustion chamber was modeled using authors’ software. The software uses a mathematical model for multicomponent chemically reacting gas with turbulence, optionally. The chemical kinetics uses elementary reactions; their number depends on the choice of mechanism.
19 Oct
Seminar “Periodic homogenization of non-local elliptic and parabolic operators of convolution type”
The talk will be focused on homogenization problems for convolution type operators in periodic media. We will consider a family of operators obtained by the diffusive scaling of a given convolution type operator.
