Spectral Optimization: From Mathematics to Physics and Advanced Technology
Mathematik und Naturwissenschaften
The aim of the proposed project SOMPATY is to strengthen the European research ties to CIS countries in Asia Minor, Central Asia, and to the European CIS country Belarus. SOMPATY focuses on an intensive staff exchange, which will lead to collaborative research and training between universities and research organizations from: Azerbaijan, Belarus, Czech Republic, Germany, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. All participating institutions have a strong research focus on spectral optimization and its applications to nano-technology, life sciences, and quantum mechanics. The core research task is organized in four Work Packages. Additionally there will be a Work Package devoted to training, dissemination and communication and a Work Package for the over all project management.
Four eminent project events (one per year) are scheduled. Each includes a scientific workshop, a summer school, proceedings in open access format, and public outreach activities in Minsk (2020), Tashkent (2021), Almaty (2022) and in Baku (2023). The Academy of Sciences, Kyiv, as the recently associated EU country Ukraine will serve as a hub.
