The division of Numerical Mathematics comprises two departments:
The department of Numerical Analysis and Modeling does research and development work in the field of algorithm oriented numerical mathematics focusing on nonlinear models, in particular differential equation models. The aim is the construction of efficient and reliable algorithms for simulation, identification and optimization (including optimal control) in complex technological problems. Thereby questions of mathematical modeling should often be included.
The department divides into four working groups:
It is the aim of the department Visualization and Data Analysis to develop new and efficient techniques for visual data analysis. For this purpose algorithms are developed in the fields of image and data analysis, geometry processing, computer graphics and visualization. The department divides into four working groups:
The processes developed here find applications in the fields of molecular physics, neuro and plant biology, medical therapy planning, computer-based surgery, geo and astrophysics as well as flow analysis. The department makes visualization software and hardware (e.g. Studio da Vinci) available and helps users to implement complex visualization projects.
