 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Space-time phenomena giving rise to fronts and interfaces are central issues in many contexts of Science and Technology. A selection of some of the most challenging ones, most often of multi-disciplinary character, will be pursued by a team of 10 Full Partner Members (8 universities of different countries and two industries, Guigues Environnement (France) and Siemens (Germany)) with the help of 4 Associate Partners. The project is divided into three general Work Packages A: Image Processing, B: Patterns in Complex Reaction-Diffusion Systems and C: Interfaces, Control and Inverse Methods in Technology Problems. The training of 42 ESR is proposed with a interdisciplinar orientation: besides the presence of the two mentioned industries with special interest in work packages B and C, respectively, most of the mathematicians implied in this ITN in the field of image processing are collaborating with researchers from other fields as in the case of the Technion Computer Sciences and Electrical Engineering departments. The presence of two industrial partners will also broaden the range of applications of the training techniques used in the FIRST. The Guigues and Simens partners, are in the supervisory board of the ITN, and are involved in the training programme through complementary skills seminars. Most of the ESRs will be trained in at least two different universities. The list of structured training courses refers not only to a set of postgraduate courses available in the PhD programmes but to some specialized courses which will be organized for the FIRST ITN. The benefit to the European scientific community will be significant: the training will not only produce researchers with broad backgrounds qualified for academic careers. It will also produce individuals with an understanding of science and with an excellent perspective for a career outside academia.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

A specific class of mathematical equations is helping to solve major challenges in the field, facilitating advanced modelling in a number of applications from climate change to desertification.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Different areas of science and technology (S&T) are increasingly intersecting at a number of disciplines and topics, giving researchers new frontiers to explore. One of these areas is non-linear partial differential equations (NL-PDEs) which have been touted recently as a key tool for accomplishing a large array of image processing tasks. The EU-funded project 'Fronts and interfaces in science and technology' (FIRST) is bringing together engineers and mathematicians with experience in numerical algorithms to solve complex challenges involving NL-PDEs.

This calls for sophisticated mathematical modelling of numerous physical processes seen in different applications, accurately displaying phenomena that reflect hysteresis, delay or long-range-interaction effects. The project is focusing on applications in image processing and patterns in complex reaction-diffusion systems, as well as interfaces, control and inverse methods in technology challenges.

Focusing on strong exchanges among project participants, the project spans eight universities that are currently offering specialised courses and workshops in the relevant fields. FIRST's highly challenging research modules are proving useful for various contemporary topics such as climate change and desertification. The project is also focusing on mathematical developments such as non-local and higher-order problems, as well as multi-scale and stochastic analysis among other topics.

A set of benefits such as global interaction, new publications and a better understanding of mathematics in complex applications is set to emerge from the project. The results should contribute to overcoming challenges in understanding the world around us and simplifying useful mathematical equations.
