The Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM experienced three days of intensive exchange: More than sixty international scientists accepted the invitation of the two organizers Prof. Dr. Anita Schöbel, Director of Fraunhofer ITWM, and Prof. Dr. Bernd Simeon from the Department of Mathematics at TU Kaiserslautern. The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for applied mathematicians from universities, research laboratories, and industry to exchange ideas and present the latest research results.Read more
CALL FOR PAPERS: Kaiserslautern Applied and Industrial Mathematics Days – KLAIM
Conference with Focus on the Modeling, Simulation and Optimization of Digital Twins will take place in Kaiserslautern, Germany, from October 11-13, 2021.
Our researchers of Fraunhofer ITWM contribute 11 presentations to the ECMI Conference 2021. You can find an overview of our presentations here on our website. We have also conducted an interview with our researches, actively involved in the special interest group »Maths for the Digital Factory«, which also deals with […]Read more
When the Covid19-Pandemic started in early 2020, Germany reacted with strict, acute nationwide measures that aimed at minimizing infection risk within the population. These included closing possible meeting locations such as schools, non-essential shops, playgrounds, restaurants and the like. Now that the numbers have declined, the government was and is faced with the dilemma of balancing citizens’ freedom rights against the risk of a new wave of infection. With smaller, but heterogeneously distributed outbreaks, local health authorities and politicians are now responsible for deciding on the degree of relaxation of protective measures in their administrative districts. There are currently numerous publications and pre-publications (cf. Flaxman, 2020) in which scientists analyze the current infection situation and attempt to predict the further course of the pandemic. Nevertheless, it cannot be expected that a district administrator or the head of the local health department will have the time and training to apply the study results, which were prepared for specific countries, regions or cities, to the situation in his or her district.Read more
Dr. Stefanie Schwaar from the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM won the BMBF’s call for tenders for funding among young female AI researchers. She will establish and head her own research group at the mathematical institute from August 2020. Under the title “EP-KI: Decision Support for Business Management Processes […]Read more
The complexity and difficulties of a flow simulation is highly dimensional. In many cases, we have only little or diffuse knowledge about boundary conditions or material properties. Moreover, the geometry might be extensive and very detailed, it may deform/move/change during the flow process. The flow might contain free surfaces or […]Read more
