The Institute of Mathematics at the University of Vienna and the Institute of Analysis und Scientific Computing at TU Wien started the new semester…

Welcome to the Institute of Analysis and Scientific Computing (ASC) at the Faculty of Mathematics and Geoinformation of TU Wien!

Our institute currently comprises 19 research groups with more than 60 scientific staff members. In addition, more than 50 student assistants are employed to run the tutorial groups of our courses.

We actively conduct mathematical research in pure and applied mathematics with currently around 25 ongoing research projects. Most of our research topics are from the areas of Computational Science and Engineering as well as Quantum Physics and Quantum Technologies at TU Wien, our focus of attention being the further development of applied mathematics.

With more than 150 courses per academic year, we contribute a large part to the excellent mathematics education at TU Wien. We are pleased that our students can benefit from our outstanding teaching and pursue successful careers in industry or academia.

Finally, members of the institute actively participate in the popular science initiative TUForMath - Forum Mathematik an der TU Wien, opens an external URL in a new window. In addition to popular science evening lectures on current, interesting and entertaining topics related to mathematics, TUForMath offers numerous workshops for school classes, where pupils are shown in a playful way the influence of mathematics on our daily lives, on science and technology, art and culture as well as society and economy. All TUForMath offers are free of charge!

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!

With best regards,
Prof. Dirk PRAETORIUS
