Chair for Numerical Mathematics


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
