Mathematical Methods and Algorithms

Mathematical modelling, development and improvement of numerical algorithms as well as their application are important ingredients to computer simulations of complex systems and processes. In order to broaden the methodological and algorithmic basis of HPC-based computational science a cross-sectional team carries out research in all these different areas. The R&D activities are performed in close cooperation with researchers of JSC's other groups, especially the SimLabs, as well as academic and industrial partners outside JSC.
Cross-sectional Team "Mathematical Methods and Algorithms"


In cooperation with Aachen University of Applied Sciences a combined education programme with the vocational training “Mathematisch-Technischer Softwareentwickler” (MATSE), the Bachelor’s course and the Master’s course Applied Mathematics and Informatics is offered. This programme is aimed to support the research activities within the simulation sciences at Forschungszentrum Jülich.
