International MSc programme Computer Simulation in Science

Since 2006 Wuppertal is successfully running an international M.Sc. programme entitled Computer Simulation in Science (CSiS)  that focuses on the development, implementation and application of computer-oriented simulation techniques and methods to modern research problems in natural sciences and engineering. All courses of this M.Sc. programme are taught in English language. The MSc programme lasts for […]

New European Joint Doctorate Network STIMULATE

Wuppertal is partner of a newly established Horizon2020 European Joint Doctorate Network entitled EJD STIMULATE, coordinated by the Cyprus Institute, that will run for the next 4 years offering triple joint degrees for the PhD Fellows, see Home page EJD STIMULATE. STIMULATE stands for: SimulaTIon in MUltiscaLe physicAl and biological sysTEms. Simulation alongside theory and […]

Shape optimization to minimize failure probability (and material consumption)

Movie: Shape flow for a 2D rod towards optimal reliability.   As three working groups (Optimization, High Performance Computing and Stochastics) at the IMACM in Wuppertal, we develop probabilistic shape optimization models for different failure mechanisms, notably for low cycle fatigue (LCF) problems, with gradient based methods. Low cycle fatigue is a surface driven failure […]

Student Projects in Data Analytics for Industries at IMACM / University of Wuppertal

During this winter term, 23 undergrad students of mathematics and economath make a special experience. In teams with up to fife students, they are invited to regional industry facilities where they are confronted with a data analytics task derived from a concrete industrial need. The industrial partners stem from markets as diverse as energy, insurance, […]

Spring School: From Particle Dynamics to Gradient Flows 2018, TU Kaiserslautern

Dear Colleagues, we would like you to pay attention to the spring school  “From Particle Dynamics to Gradient Flows 2018”taking place from March 19 to March 23, 2018 at TU Kaiserslautern. Particle Dynamics and their scaling limits are a subject of intensive research. The spring school aims to PhD students and young post-docs from the fields […]

Successful outcomes of ITN STRIKE

In Dec 2016 the European Initial Training Network project “STRIKE – Novel Methods in Computational Finance” did end. The Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Germany, coordinated this project that involved a network of eleven universities for training twelve PhD-students (4 females, 8 males) and five PostDocs (2 females, 3 males). The project initiated the ECMI Special Interest […]

Solving Differential Equations in Mixed Reality

Anders Logg, Carl Lundholm, Magne Nordaas Department of Mathematical Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg We develop an application for solving Poisson’s equation with the finite element method using Microsoft’s mixed reality glasses HoloLens.  The idea with the HoloLens application is to set up and solve a Poisson problem in a real […]

Conformal mappings, numerical analysis and mathematical modeling

Antti Rasila Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis Aalto University Conformal mappings are a class of functions studied in the classical complex analysis, which are defined by the property that they preserve angles between smooth curves. The basic properties of the complex multiplication along with the chain rule give another important characterization of conformal mappings: […]
