Investigation and Mathematical Analysis of Avant-garde Disease Control via Mosquito Nano-Tech-Repellents

CA COST Action CA16227 

IMAAC aims at investigation and mathematical analysis of the effect of avant-garde control measures in vector-borne diseases involving day-time active mosquitos transmitting diseases like dengue, Zika, chikungunya and yellow fever.

This Action aims to bring together experts from epidemiology, biostatistics, mathematics, biology, nano-technology, chemical and textile engineering to implement new techniques to combat mosquito transmitted vector-borne diseases. The key question remains, in how far such avant-garde measures can help to reduce the disease burden, eventually in collaboration with existing vaccines which turned out to have only limited efficacy on their own.

 

Mathematical theory of dislocations: geometry, analysis, and modelling

FCT Starting Grant (IF/00734/2013)
PI: Nicolas Van Goethem

The main purpose of this research project is dislocation modeling in solid bodies (single crystals). This encompasses analytical and geometrical properties of dislocation-singularities, functional analysis for the incompatibility operator, incompatibility-based models of plasticity and time-evolution of dislocation sets. The mathematical tools used and developed for this purposes are PDEs, variational methods, differential geometry and topological sensitivity analysis. Nonlinear elasticity, Continuum mechanics and thermodynamics are also required and developed for such models. In general, theoretical and numerical results are sought.
