The Intergalactic Medium as a Cosmological Tool
ID: 257670
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2016-11-30
The cosmoIGM proposal aims at investigating the role of the Intergalactic Medium (IGM) as a cosmological probe and at exploiting the many IGM-related sinergies between observational cosmology, galaxy formation and fundamental physics. The IGM is a unique cosmological observab...

InteGrated Laboratories to investigate the mechanics of ASeismic vs. Seismic faulting
ID: 259256
Start date: 2010-10-01, End date: 2015-09-30
Earthquakes are potentially catastrophic phenomena that have a huge impact on the environment and society. Understanding the physical processes responsible for earthquakes and faulting requires high quality data and direct observations of the underlying phenomena. However, no...

Patterning the surface of monolayer-protected nanoparticles to obtain intelligent nanodevices
ID: 259014
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2015-11-30
While chemical science is still striving in the search for such molecular machinery, real and perfectly working molecular machines have been developed millions of years ago by Nature. When biological systems are considered, one striking feature that emerges is their intrinsic...

Empirical analysis and theoretical modelling of self-organized collective behaviour in three-dimensions: from insect swarms and bird flocks to new schemes of distributed coordination
ID: 257126
Start date: 2010-11-01, End date: 2015-10-31
Animal groups represent paradigmatic cases of self-organized collective behaviour, where global coordination arises from local rules of interaction between individuals. A major issue, both for theoretical studies and technological applications, is to understand how self-organ...

Dynamics of the Quark-Gluon Plasma: A Journey into new phases of the Strong Interaction
ID: 259684
Start date: 2011-05-01, End date: 2017-01-31
The study of the fundamental theory of the strong interaction, Quantum Chromo Dynamics (QCD), under extreme conditions of temperature and density has captured an increasing interest due to its very rich dynamical content and its relation to the Early Universe physics. Heavy-I...

Practical Approximation Algorithms
ID: 259515
Start date: 2010-11-01, End date: 2015-10-31
The goal of this proposal is the development and study of practical approximation algorithms. We will base our study on theoretical models that can describe requirements for algorithms that make them practically efficient. We plan to develop an efficient and useful programmin...

Gravitational Lensing as a Cosmological Probe
ID: 259349
Start date: 2011-03-01, End date: 2016-02-29
I propose to develop new observational probes of cosmology based on gravitational lensing. The project consists of three themes: 1) Computer tools will be developed for detecting and measuring small-scale structures in the distribution of dark matter using strong gravitationa...

Isogeometric Methods for Biomechanics
ID: 259229
Start date: 2010-11-01, End date: 2015-10-31
Computational Mechanics and the numerical analysis of the structural behavior are becoming a more and more fundamental tool for the engineering design process in many different fields. This is particularly true in Biomechanics, nowadays widely recognized as a fundamental rese...

Multilingual Joint Word Sense Disambiguation
ID: 259234
Start date: 2011-02-01, End date: 2016-01-31
In the information society the language barrier represents one of the main obstacles to the automatic use, integration and manipulation of knowledge, and this is manifested in the lack of intelligent systems able to perform unified semantic processing of textual resources in ...

Analysis of optimal sets and optimal constants: old questions and new results
ID: 258685
Start date: 2010-08-01, End date: 2015-07-31
The analysis of geometric and functional inequalities naturally leads to consider the extremal cases, thus looking for optimal sets, or optimal functions, or optimal constants. The most classical examples are the (different versions of the) isoperimetric inequality and the So...
