The Institute of Analysis and Scientific Computing 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)
The international top-level expertise of the faculty members is reflected in the institute’s participation in the special research program „Taming Complexity in PDE systems“ (grant SFB F65 funded by the FWF; deputy head: Prof. Dr. Anton ARNOLD) as well as the doctoral school „Dissipation and Dispersion in Nonlinear PDEs“ (grant W1245 funded by the FWF; head: Prof. Dr. Ansgar JÜNGEL). Moreover, the institute is actively involved in the excellence initiatives „Vienna Center for Partial Differential Equations“ and „Vienna School of Mathematics“ run jointly by TU Wien and University of Vienna and in the excellence initiative „Vienna Center for Engineering in Medicine“ run jointly by TU Wien and Medical University of Vienna.
Finally, there are many ongoing research projects (see our grants) funded by various organizations including FWF, WWTF, AIT, EU, and Siemens. In particular, we mention the START projects „PDE Models for Nanotechnology“ of Prof. Dr. Clemens HEITZINGER and „Tunable materials: geometry, nonlocality, chirality“ of Prof. Dr. Elisa DAVOLI.
