Research group: Numerics and scientific computing

Principal investigator: Professor Dr. Katharina Kormann

Our group works on the development of novel numerical simulation schemes for the solutino of partial differential equations with applications mainly in plasma physics and quantum dynamics. One focus is on structure-preserving numerical schemes that are designed to conserve certain physical invariants which renders the numerical algorithms both robust and reliable. We use compatible finite elements as well as symplectic or energy-conserving time stepping methods.

We are interested in the efficient numerical solution of high-dimensional problems and develop compression techniques and implementations for high-performance computers.
