Archimedes Center for Modeling, Analysis and Computations

The ACMAC project is funded by the FP7 programme of the European Commission and has as main objectives to strengthen the research profile of the Applied Mathematics Department, to enable its members to enhance their contacts with major research centers in Europe and to reinforce the Department's research capability in areas where it has recognized expertise. The project encompasses a set of measures organized around a Center, named Archimedes Center for Modeling, Analysis and Computation (ACMAC), aiming to promote academic excellence in Applied Mathematics and fostering the interface of modeling, analysis and computation.
