About these proceedings


This book explores mathematics in a wide variety of applications, ranging from problems in electronics, energy and the environment, to mechanics and mechatronics. The book gathers 81 contributions submitted to the 20th European Conference on Mathematics for Industry, ECMI 2018, which was held in Budapest, Hungary in June 2018. The application areas include: Applied Physics, Biology and Medicine, Cybersecurity, Data Science, Economics, Finance and Insurance, Energy, Production Systems, Social Challenges, and Vehicles and Transportation. In turn, the mathematical technologies discussed include: Combinatorial Optimization, Cooperative Games, Delay Differential Equations, Finite Elements, Hamilton-Jacobi Equations, Impulsive Control, Information Theory and Statistics, Inverse Problems, Machine Learning, Point Processes, Reaction-Diffusion Equations, Risk Processes, Scheduling Theory, Semidefinite Programming, Stochastic Approximation, Spatial Processes, System Identification, and Wavelets.

The goal of the European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry (ECMI) conference series is to promote interaction between academia and industry, leading to innovations in both fields. These events have attracted leading experts from business, science and academia, and have promoted the application of novel mathematical technologies to industry. They have also encouraged industrial sectors to share challenging problems where mathematicians can provide fresh insights and perspectives. Lastly, the ECMI conferences are one of the main forums in which significant advances in industrial mathematics are presented, bringing together prominent figures from business, science and academia to promote the use of innovative mathematics in industry.
