Applied mathematics is a major driver of innovation in modern technology-oriented societies, since mathematics is the language, which serves to describe problems in engineering, economics, and natural sciences.
Our research area addresses the analysis, solution, and optimization of challenges motivated by applications. Very often large systems of ordinary or partial differential equations encode such challenges.
Examples are crystal growing, fluid flow, vehicle dynamics, medical imaging, ocean and atmosphere dynamics, climate interactions, renewable energy, and many others.
To solve such challenging problems we develop advanced numerical methods with structure-preserving properties, multi-scale and multi-component methods, inverse modeling techniques, and optimization methods. Techniques of model order reduction as well as data compression play an important role as well.
