Applied Mathematics

Applied mathematics is a discipline devoted to the use of mathematical methods and reasoning to solve real-world problems of a scientific or decision-making nature in a wide variety of subjects, principally (but not exclusively) in engineering, medicine, the physical and biological sciences, and the social sciences. Applied mathematical modeling often involves the use of systems of (partial) differential equations to describe and predict the behavior of complex real-world systems that unfold dynamically in time.

Prof. Venturi addresses a long-standing open problem in computational mathematics

Functional differential equations are capable of describing the complete statistical properties of a turbulent flow or predicting the electronic structure of superconducting materials. For nearly seventy years, the math behind them has been so complex they were impossible to solve, and their... Read More
