The Research Unit of Scientific Computing and Modelling consists of the following 7 workgroups:

The scientific aim of this research unit is to model and to simulate problems in the natural sciences, in engineering disciplines, and in industry. In many applications, this results in the task to develop numerical solvers for coupled systems of deterministic and stochastic partial differential equations and algebraic equations. To ensure efficiency, the solvers are adapted to modern computer architectures, while keeping them flexible enough to handle new applications and hardware.

Selected applications include:

  • acoustics
  • biology
  • control theory
  • education
  • electromagnetics
  • epidemiology
  • fluid dynamics
  • medicine
  • nanotechnology
  • neuroscience
  • solid mechanics

In particular, finite element software is developed and maintained in the research area, and the Institute for Analysis and Scientific Computing also provides related software consulting.
