Time and place: May 3, 2021May 7, 2021, Oslo

The scientific program will include invited talks, selected oral contributions from submitted abstracts, and poster presentations, covering the following topics:

  • Nuclear level density
  • Gamma-ray strength function
  • Phase transitions in mesoscopic systems
  • Applications in astrophysics and reactor physics
  • Other related topics

As in previous Oslo Workshops, the program will allow ample time for discussions. The list of speakers and a detailed program will be posted on the conference website and will be included in the next circular in early April 2021. Previous workshops: 2019, 2017, 2015, 2013, 2011, 2009, 2007

Computer science was originally invented as a tool to support learning in other disciplines, including engineering and economics. Today, most of computer science education is aimed at preparing future software developers. How do we broaden the appeal of and access to computer science education, to something closer to what the inventors of the field had in mind?

Abstract:

In 1823 Niels Henrik Abel published a paper with title "Oplösning af et par opgaver ved hjelp af bestemte integraler," (Solution of a couple of problems by means of definite integrals), Magazin for Naturviden-skaberne, Aargang I, Bind 2, Christiania, which did not appear in French translation until 1881. Here he presented a complete framework for fractional-order calculus with appropriate notation for non-integer-order integration and differentiation. This seems to have been unknown until discussed in Podlubny, Magin, Trymorush, "Niels Henrik Abel and the birth of fractional calculus," Fractional Calculus and Applied Analysis, pp. 1068-1075, 2017.

I will give an introduction to non-integer order calculus and Abel's derivation of it. This will be done by going through his 1823 paper showing how he assumes a generalization of both Cauchy's formula for repeated integration and the fundamental theorem of calculus. In addition I will show how fractional calculus can be used to derive fractional-order partial differential wave equations. They have solutions with power-law attenuation which matches measurements in the complex media of medical ultrasound and elastography as well as in sediment acoustics and seismics.

Practical work like laboratory work and fieldwork is integrated parts of many science educational programmes. However what do students learn through practical work?, and is it the same in different types of practical work?
