Research in the Department of Mathematics and Physics

The research of the FANG Department of Mathematics and Physics focuses on applied computer science, mathematics and physics. Each research focus is represented by a lab. The members of the Department are involved in industry projects and are networking with research institutions around the world.

Lab for Mathematical Methods in Computer Vision and Machine Learning

[Translate to Englisch:] Icon Labor Computer Vision

The research focus is the solution of mathematical problems occuring with Computer Vision and Imaging. The focus of application is segmentation and reconstruction problems. The methodological focus comprises of variational methods, non-convex optimisation and machine learning.

Contact person: Prof. Dr. Storath

Lab for Microscopic Modelling of Materials Properties and Processes

[Translate to Englisch:] Icon Labor Mikroskopische Modellierung

The lab is working towards creating theoretical understanding of general porpoerties of complex fluids and solids.

Contact person: Prof. Dr. Bier

Numerical Simulation Lab

[Translate to Englisch:] Icon Lobor Numerische Simulation

The lab is concerned with numerical simulation and optimisation of processes in nature and technology. The numeric calculation of electromagnetic fields is especially relevant for the development of many technical products like electric engines, generator, magnet valves, batteries and isolators.

Contact person: Prof. Dr. Wimmer
