Mathematical modeling for technologies and natural sciences

Researches in mathematical modeling have been carried out in Latvia for more than 40 years. Internationally recognized researches of heat and mass transfer modeling, flows of gas and liquid matter in non-homogeneous media, hydrodynamics and magneto hydrodynamics have been performed. International conferences on mathematical modeling are organized (last one was held in Jurmala in 2006). Current researches focus on studies of direct and inverse problems of mathematical physics in complex media. The results are used in such important industrial processes as intensive steel quenching or development of new kind of devices for more effective cooling (heating): pipes, refrigerators etc.
