Welcome to the Institute of Analysis and Scientific Computing
We are pleased that you are interested in the Institute of Analysis and Scientific Computing of TU Wien. Currently, the institute has 22 workgroups with more than 90 academic staff members, organized in three research units:
- Analysis (head: Prof. Dr. Ansgar JÜNGEL)
- Numerical Analysis (head: Prof. Dr. Markus MELENK)
- Scientific Computing and Modelling (head: Prof. Dr. Joachim SCHÖBERL)
Our research comprises both pure and applied mathematics, where the application problems arise mostly from Engineering and the Natural Sciences. Most of our institute's research is aligned with the TU competence fields "Computational Science and Engineering" and "Quantum Physics and Quantum Technologies".
If you want to learn more about our recent research activities, please see our research page.
As far as teaching is concerned, we are in charge of all courses of Technical Mathematics at TU Wien that are related to the introduction to programming, basic analysis and calculus, functional analysis and operator theory, ordinary and partial differential equations, and numerical methods and simulation. Moreover, we provide the mathematics curriculum for students of Technical Physics, Electrical Engineering, and Geoinformation and offer a variety of courses on numerical methods and simulation for students in diverse fields including Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Geoinformation. Twice a year, the institute offers the so-called Angleichungskurs Mathematik, the preparatory mathematics course for students of all disciplines entering TU Wien.

Finally, members of the institute are actively contributing to TUForMath — Forum Mathematik (head: Prof. Dr. Dirk PRAETORIUS), a popular science initiative of TU Wien that provides "hands-on" fun mathematics for pupils and shows the impact of mathematics on science and engineering as well as, perhaps less expected, on arts and culture, society and economics, and our daily life.
Our excellence in teaching impacts the careers of our students. Most of our alumni follow very successful careers in industry and many have even stayed in academia.
If you have any question or need further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
With best regards,
