The "Mathematical Physics and Computational Statistics” Research Laboratory (ΜΑ.ΦΥ.ΥΠ.ΣΤ.) was founded in October 2020 at the Department of Environment of the Ionian University (Greek Government Gazette 4597 / 19-10-2020 B '). The aim and scope of the Laboratory is the promotion of scientific research, with emphasis on excellence, as well as the support of teaching, in the field of Mathematical Physics and Computational Statistics using powerful programming platforms such as MaTLab, Mathematica, MapleSoft, R etc.
Through the theoretical study, the applied methodologies and tools provided from new technologies, the mission of the laboratory is established and enhanced in both the teaching and research direction.
The subjects covered in the laboratory consist of Applied Mathematics in Physical Sciences, Statistics / Modeling and Computational Applications. The research, mainly focus (but not exhausted) on the following thematic units:
Applied (non) linear Dynamical Systems and Geometric Symmetries (Collineations), Optimization of photovoltaic cell technology, climate change and Paleoclimatology, exact and perturbative renormalization group theory applied on the study of precursor seismic events, design and development of a network of sensors through optical fibers, Theoretical Fluid Mechanics, broader topics of Mathematical Physics (Relativistic Cosmology and Astrophysics, String and Brane Theory, Asymptotic Safe Gravity etc), Applied Statistics, Spatial Analysis and Modeling of Environmental and Ecological data, risk and vulnerability assessment of coastal zone and environmentally sensitive areas, code development in software platforms and tools of Computational Statistics, Acoustic Ecology, Computational Statistics Applications.
