The simulation of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) is an indispensable tool for innovation in science and technology.Computer-based simulation of PDEs approximates unknowns defined on a geometrical entity such as the computational domain with all of its properties. Mainly due to historical reasons, geometric design and numerical methods for PDEs have been developed independently, resulting i ...

Analysing the link between reproduction and women’s social status, this project explores social responses to pregnancy, birth and childrearing from the late Neolithic to the late Iron Age (c.3000-15 BC) through case studies in central Europe. Motherhood and childrearing, often seen as natural, mundane and inevitable parts of women’s lives, are also cultural and historically contingent practices th ...

It is often taken for granted that the Greek-Arabic translation movement (8th-10th c.) that made the whole bulk of Classical Greek scientific and philosophical literature available in Arabic (and that was later handed over to Europe in Latin translations) owes much to the preceding period in the history of transmission of this scientific and philosophical literature, namely translations into the S ...

Accelerators Validating Antimatter physics (AVA)

Start date: 01 Jan 2017, End date: 31 Dec 2020,

Antiprotons, stored and cooled at low energies in a storage ring or at rest in traps, are highly desirable for the investigation of basic questions on fundamental interactions, the static structure of antiprotonic atoms, CPT tests by high-resolution spectroscopy on antihydrogen, as well as gravity experiments. Antimatter experiments are at the cutting edge of science. They are, however, very diffi ...

From Open to Closed Loop Optimal Control of PDEs (OCLOC)

Start date: 01 Jan 2016, End date: 31 Dec 2020,

The proposal addresses some of the most pressing topics in optimal control of partial differential equations (PDEs): Non-smooth, non-convex optimal control and computational techniques for feedback control. These two topics will be applied to the large scale optimal control problems for the bidomain equations, which are the established model to describe the electrical activity of the heart. Due to ...

The Enigma of the Hyksos (Hyksos Enigma)

Start date: 01 Jan 2016, End date: 31 Dec 2020,

The Hyksos (Greek rendering of the Egyptian title “rulers of the foreign countries”) were a dynasty of foreign rulers of Egypt between c.1640 and 1530 BC. Some modern researchers, following the ancient historian Flavius Josephus (1st cent. AD) thought they were ancestors of the early Israelites, others suggested that their appearance should be tied to the Hurrian expansion to the Levant. Most scho ...

Ultra Strong Materials (USMS)

Start date: 01 Mar 2014, End date: 28 Feb 2019,

The theoretical strength of metals and ceramics is about 10% of their Young’s modulus. Although whiskers reach strength values close to this limit they cannot be used in the design of load bearing structures. Currently the typical strength of the structural materials in use is only in the range of few % of this theoretical limit. Premature plastic deformation and failure due to flaws are the main ...

Antihydrogen is the simplest atom consisting entirely of antimatter. Since its counterpart hydrogen is one of the best studied atoms in physics, a comparison of antihydrogen and hydrogen offers one of the most sensitive tests of CPT symmetry. CPT, the successive application of charge conjugation, parity and time reversal transformation is a fundamental symmetry conserved in the standard model (SM) ...
