Applying centuries of work
When you think about engineering and physics, math immediately pops into your head as the basis. But what about health research? Did you know mathematical equations are used to model the flow of blood, allowing for noninvasive ways to make predictions about the movement of blood within the body?
Applying math to more tangible fields is what’s at stake in Giuseppe Mingione’s world. Partial differential equations provide a methodological background and blueprint to solve real-world problems, whether that’s calculating how heat propagates or creating a model for an airplane. Everything can be modeled with math, which makes it a powerful tool.
