Same formula for desert sand and share prices

On Wednesday, Professor Emeritus Ole E. Barndorff-Nielsen is being presented with the prestigious Rigmor and Carl Holst-Knudsen Award for Scientific Research 2014 for his ground-breaking contribution to research into Mathematical Statistics and its application. His models are used in physics, geology, economics, cancer research and the exploration…

A fine layer of the well-known Aarhus University blue now concludes hundreds of hours of work designing a vehicle that could be the most efficient of its kind in the world. We will find out in the next few days when a group of engineering students called Team AU competes for the second year in a row in the Shell Eco-marathon. The aim is to drive 10,000 kilometres on the equivalent of 1 litre of fuel. (Photo: Team AU)
