Webinar on Using HPC Technologies

High-Performance Computing (HPC) can efficiently process large data sets and quickly perform complex calculations to solve problems both in science and business. Numerical modelling, process optimisation, large data set processing and machine learning are all instruments that take up a larger and larger portion of a company’s everyday life. By using the possibilities that HPC […]

Recent University Graduates’ Study and Work Experience

As the academic year comes to an end, several members of our staff have become a degree richer. We are happy to announce that Mārtiņš Klevs, Pēteris Zvejnieks, Daniels Heincis and Maksims Surovovs have graduated from the University of Latvia and have earned either bachelor or master of science degrees in physics. The recent graduates […]

Electromagnetic processing of materials 2021

The 10th international conference and summer school on Electromagnetic Processing of Materials (EPM) took place online from the 9th to the 16th of June. Andris Jakovics, head of the laboratory of multiphysical processes at the Institute of Numerical Modelling, together with researchers from France, Israel, China, Russia, Japan, Germany, UK, USA, Ukraine, and Italy served […]

New Experimental Laboratory for Industrial MHD Research

A new experimental laboratory for the deployment of industrial MHD (magnetohydrodynamic) technologies has been established in cooperation with AS Latvo as a part of the ERDF project “Development of numerical modelling approaches for the exploration of complex multilateral interaction processes in electromagnetic liquid metal technologies” (No. 1.1.1.1/18/A/108). To obtain high-quality energy-efficient alloys, it is principal […]

INM researcher Mihails Birjukovs receives a DAAD scholarship

INM researcher Mihails Birjukovs was awarded a DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) scholarship for a short-term visit to Dresden, Germany. A fundamental study of magnetohydrodynamic bubble flow will continue in collaboration with Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), where Mihails has recently spent 2 months and then worked remotely. The visit will last from June 15 to December […]

Using Overleaf – a webinar

On Tuesday, March 9, in collaboration with researchers from the faculty of Physics, Mathematics and Optometry and representatives from the University Library a webinar was organised on Overleaf and the possibilities it offers. Overleaf is a collaborative cloud-based LaTeX editor used for writing, editing and publishing scientific documents. Recently the Nature Science Faculties of the […]

How energy efficient are buildings in Latvia?

Dr Phys. Staņislavs Gendelis, a senior researcher at the Institute of Numerical Modelling, has carried out a statistical analysis of buildings with issued energy performance certificates in Latvia for the past five years. The performed analysis was published in the journal Būvinženieris (in Latvian – Civil Engineer) in the February 2021 issue. The most interesting […]

Tija Sīle started working for the […]

The Latvian Government grants funding to the EuroCC project

On February 25, the Cabinet of Ministres supported Latvia’s participation in the EuroHPC project, this provides an opportunity to finance the EuroCC project that had already been launched. In June 2018, Latvia decided to join the EuroHPC initiative, which later became the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, this decision means that the Latvian government agreed to take […]
