The MMAI group is an interdisciplinary group integrated by researches from different areas: mathematics, physics, and engineering. The research is devoted, on the one hand, to the modeling of new materials and to the study of nanotechnology and engineering applications, at the nanometer dimensions and macroscopic level, respectively, using the computation and the numerical simulation. On the other hand, different aspects of the numerical resolution of partial differential equations are studied.
Using the computational simulation, by calculating electronic and geometric structures, inherent properties to the nanometric systems and metallic alloys are studied. Moreover, it is being paid great attention to design, assembling nanometric units, new materials with opto-electronic applications, photovoltaic and magnetic materials, which can be designed changing their composition and substituting some elements by other. On the other hand, using the computational simulation and the numerical methods, the structure of new nanometric catalysts is examined.
