Xarxa MAnET "Metric Analysis for Emergent Technologies"
The scientific objective of the project is to develop new and highly sophisticated instruments of metric analysis in rich geometrical setting, non isotropic or non regular.
Non isotropic problems arise while describing the motion of a system in which some directions are not allowed by a constraint, as models of the visual cortex or robotics, or traffic dynamics. Non regular metric analogue of differential objects arise as limits of regular surfaces, or minima of a functional. The differential instruments are no more sufficient to handle these objects and have to be replaced by instruments of geometric measure theory: mass transportation, and singular integrals. These results will open the possibility of affording a large spectrum of emergent technological problems from human to computer vision and medical imaging, from eye path tracking to traffic dynamics and robot design.
The consortium (http://manet.dm.unibo.it/partners.php) consists of 9 European universities and 4 enterprises, an alliance of carefully selected partners with a high reputation in a set of complementary disciplines consisting in Geometric Measure theory, Subriemannian PDE, Mathematical modelling in geometrical setting, Neuroscience, and Robotics.
The Marie Curie Initial Training Network MAnET will recruit in total 14 research positions in the field of Metric analysis, Geometric measure theory, PDE in Lie groups, and a large spectrum of application to neuromathematics, image analysis and traffic simulation. Among these positions, the following ones are to be filled within Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona:
All PhD research positions (ESR) are fully funded for 36 months and involve international mobility within EU countries. The Post doc positions (ER) are funded for 18 or 24 months.
To complement the local training, the fellows will spend a 3-6 months stay at another secondments at a partner university or at an associated private sector partner (intership).
Several conferences, workshops and scientiffic events are to be organized by the consortium members. They will also be conveniently announced here (as well as at MAnET’s webpage).
