Mathematics of Computational Science

The Mathematics of Computational Science (MACS) group focuses on the mathematical aspects of advanced scientific computing. The two main research areas are

· |
the development, analysis and application of numerical algorithms for the (adaptive) solution of partial differential equations |

and

· |
the mathematical modeling of multi-scale problems making these accessible for computation. |

Special emphasis is put on the development and analysis of discontinuous Galerkin finite element methods and efficient (parallel) solution algorithms for large algebraic systems.

Important applications are in the fields of computational electromagnetics (nanophotonics), free surface flows (water waves, inkjet printing), (dispersed) two-phase flows and phase transition, and granular flows.
