Introduction Are you studying mathematics, physics and/or computer science? Do you have a proactive mindset and have knowledge on mathematical modelling? Then this internship is the one for you! Background information Within the context of the NXE and EXE platforms, the Source Laser group uses a number of key metrics and modelling methods. However, there are still several different ways of calculating these used within the group, and there is the desire to unify all the variants. The aim of this internship assignment is, as a first step in the unification process, to provide overview of the different implementations and quantitatively compare (mathematics/physics) them, both from the point of view of accuracy, as well as computation speed. Your assignment The assignment consists of the following tasks: Contact relevant stakeholders in the organization and collect relevant metrics and modelling functions; Investigate the existing metrics and methods by reading through existing documents and code; Define a set of inputs in Monte Carlo fashion to measure the accuracy and computation speed of the different implementations of each metric/method; Document the findings, including recommendations. Your profile A suitable candidate would have the following: Educational background inmathematics, physics and/or computer science; Knowledge of Matlab andmathematical modeling is required; Comfortable with approachingunknown people; Good communication skills; Proactive mindset The team is looking for a master/bachelor student ideally starting from May/June for 3 to 6 months, 3-5 days a week, total effort is estimated at 70 workdays. Please note that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a university for the entire duration of the internship.
