The group contributes to the following application oriented research topics of WIAS:

Computational neuroscience and medical imaging

Image processing tools based on modern mathematical algorithms enable a bulk of applications in the medical sciences. They range from image enhancement to automatic image analysis. [>> more]

Modeling of phase separation and damage in modern materials

This work is focussed on the modeling of damage and on phase separation in modern solder materials for microelectronic devices. [>> more]

Optimization Problems in Power Management

The management of electricity portfolios includes the unit commitment problem (with respect to a network of thermal, hydro, decentralized and other power units) but also trading of electrical energy under the conditions of a liberalized power market. [>> more]

Simulation, optimization and optimal control of processes in production and biomedicine

From the industrial point of view there is great need for planning and optimisation tools that allow an accelerated planning and reconfiguration of complex production facilities. [>> more]
