• Aktuell ist das spannende Masterarbeitsthema Innovative Ultraschall-Tomographie und digitale Rekonstruktion für die zerstörungsfreie Prüfung von Kulturgütern aus Marmor, in Kooperation an interessierte Studenten zu vergeben.

  • Zur Zeit ist eine HiWi-Stelle bei Prof. Moritz Weber ausgeschrieben (3 Monate, 5 SWS). Es geht um die numerische Lösung eines größeren Systems aus polynomiellen Gleichungen. Die Ausschreibung finden Sie hier.
  • We are currently looking for a Ph.D. student in the field of parameter identification for elastic/viscoelastic materials. A description of the position (in German) can be found here.

Chair for Numerical Mathematics


There are no office hours on March 27 and April 3.


Welcome to the homepage of the chair for Numerical Analysis and Applied Mathematics under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Thomas Schuster!

The chair is connected to the Department of Mathematics of the Saarland University and located in building E1 1 on the campus at Saarbrücken.

Our research areas are:Professur fuer Numerik web trans y400

  • Inverse problems in theory and applications
  • Numerical analysis
  • Optimization
  • Parameter identification for PDEs

with a special focus on

  • Theory and algorithms for vector and tensor tomography (2D, 3D)
  • Modelling and simulation for defect detection in composite materials
  • Parameter identification for elastic wave equations
  • Regularization methods in Banach spaces
  • Theory and algorithm development for terahertz tomography
  • Magnetic particle imaging
