The IAC3 participates in different research and technological projects, ranging from satellite image processing to applications in computational physiology. Our research excellence has been recognized both internationally and nationally and we have been awarded with several competitive grants.

Featured Project


Software Platform for Prototyping New Physical Models

This was the very first IAC3 initiative – developing a software platform (Simflowny) that could provide users with a fast tool for prototyping new physical models and problems, of many different fields, bypassing the need to painfully handcraft code.

Current Projects


Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation Simulation

This project seeks to validate a physiological mathematical model based on partial derivatives equations adapted at the aortic root for the determination of hemodynamic factors predictors of tissue damage and prosthesis fatigue.

Qualitative study of dynamical systems and their applications

Periodic behaviours and bifurcations

This project is part of the dynamical systems group research and its purpose is to contribute on the qualitative study of dynamical systems, without neglecting the application that the obtained results have to real live models, such as neuronal models in our case. In particular, we aboard three different aspects: periodic behavior in low dimension, periodic behaviors in piecewise linear differential systems of larger dimension and the applications to neuroscience.
