Due to the threat of the spread of COVID-19, from September 1, 2020, NSU students are studying in a distance or mixed format. Foreign students outside the Russian Federation study remotely.
The QS World University Rankings by Subject 2021 was just published. Novosibirsk State University was ranked in 18 subjects in four academic spheres.
Scientists at the Institute of Automation and Electrometry SB RAS, together with ScientificCoin, developed a method for operative diagnostics of the human organism. They created the Healthmonitor gas analyzer that can determine the presence of coronavirus infection in the body with an accuracy of 85%.
Master students from Big Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence MMF NSU master program took part in Quantum Machine Learning Hackathon and got prized place.
NSU scientists Rene van Bevern, Head of the Algorithmics Laboratory at the NSU Mechanics and Mathematics Department(MMD) and Oksana Tsidulko, Junior Researcher at the Laboratory, and Vsevolod Afanasyev, MMD sophomore co-authored an article published in “Operations Research Letters” that is part of Q2 on Scopus. The article explores hierarchical Chinese Postman Problems. These Problems require finding the shortest path along the edges of a graph in which the edges are divided into classes and there are precedent constraints between the classes such as an edge can be traversed only when all edges in the classes preceding this class are traversed.
Their research results were published in the “Structural Chemistry” journal. Everyone knows liquid electrolytes, they are the ones that conduct electric current in ordinary batteries. However, solid electrolytes exist with them and the scientific community is still questioning how ions are transferred in them. Some organic salts of substituted ammonia have rather high ionic conductivity in a solid state.
In February 2021, NSU scientists published a review of the characterizations of single particles using light scattering methods in “Laser and Photonics Reviews”. The review covers research on a wide variety of microparticles, from atmospheric dust to blood cells. The article’s objective is to present developments from various groups around the world.
