The Grant competition is oriented at young scientists- graduate students and provides conditions for successful obtaining of the Candidate of Sciences degree. It also facilitates job search and assists in training scientists for Russian research institutions.

Total amount of the grant: 1,200,000 rubles.

Grant of RSF

Aleksandr Vasiliev, a researcher at the International Research Laboratory “Multiscale Mathematical Modeling and Computing”, Institute of Mathematics and Information Science became a winner of the Russian Science Foundation grant. This competition was held in the framework of the “Initiative research by young scientists” event of the presidential program of research projects. Aleksandr Vasiliev presented a project “Development of computational algorithms and software for problems of neutron transfer in a nuclear reactor based on new mathematical models of SP3 approximation”. The project was highly assessed by experts. The research is aimed at development of computational algorithms for stationary and non-stationary boundary value problems of neutron transfer in SP3 approximation by the finite element method taking into account a heterogeneous structure of the reactor core. ”

The project implementation period is 2 years. In 2019 the Foundation provides funding for implementation of the project in the amount of 1,500,000 rubles.

Conference Yakutsk

In the period of June 24 to June 25, 2019 the International Laboratory hosted the III International Conference “Multiscale and high-performance computing for multiphysical problems”. It aimed at development of research on multiscale finite element method for solving multiphysical problems, applications to urgent problems in the development of the Arctic and Northern Territories. Leading researchers from Russia, the USA, Sweden, Hong Kong, Singapore, young scientists from China, Novosibirsk attended the event.

Memorandum of understanding

In the period of June 20-July 20, 2019 the International laboratory hosted 3 young scientists (Dr. Qili Tang, Dr. Jian Huang, Dr. Yaoyao Chen) from Xiangtan University within the Memorandum of understanding between the two institutions signed on July 2018.

The scientists had a research work with their Laboratory colleagues and attended the III International conference “«Multiscale and high-performance computing for multiphysical problems» held by the Laboratory where Dr. Jian Huang made a presentation on Multigrid Methods for a Mixed Finite Element Method of the Darcy-Forchheimer Mode


Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in cooperation with Ammosov North-Eastern Federal University and Ivannikov Institute for System Programming of the Russian Academy of Sciences hosted the IV International conference “Supercomputer Technologies of Mathematical Modelling (SCTeMM’19) on June 19 – 21, 2019.

The purpose of this conference was to discuss current problems of mathematical modeling of continuum mechanics, computational algorithms on multiprocessor systems, scientific computing, and prospects for the development of parallel computing technologies. The conference covered the following themes
