Barbara Wohlmuth, professor at the Department of Mathematics of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), will give the Anneliese Niethammer Lecture of the summer semester 2021.
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Barbara Wohlmuth, TU Munich
Title: "The challenge of non-local operators and mixed dimension in simulation and modelling"
Date: 13 July 2021
Time: 4:00 pm CET
Place: The lecture will be a virtual lecture
Registration: we kindly ask for prior registration via e-mail: >>> email@example.com.
In this talk, we address some mathematical and numerical challenges of non-linear or non-local partial differential equations in applications. We use a variety of applications ranging from porous-media flow systems, fluid and structural mechanics to finance. The special challenges of variational inequalities, mixed-dimensions and non-integer differential operators are illustrated. We show the flexibility of abstract mathematical concepts and discuss limitations in theory and convergence.
About Barbara Wohlmuth
The research of Professor Wohlmuth examines the numerical simulation of partial differential equations. Special areas of interest here are discretization techniques, multi-scale solvers, coupled multi-field problems and predictive modelling. Interdisciplinary cooperation with engineering experts is an important part of her work.
Professor Wohlmuth studied mathematics at TUM and at Grenoble. She also received her doctorate from TUM (1995) and completed her postdoctoral teaching qualification at Augsburg. Various positions as visiting scientist or professor led her to the US, to France, Hong Kong and Norway. In 2001, she was appointed to her first chair position at the University of Stuttgart, followed by professorship positions at Darmstadt and Berlin. In 2010, Professor Wohlmuth joined the faculty of TUM. She serves on academic boards of highly renowned institutions in the US and Europe, and (co-)publishes different international journals. She has headed the International Graduate School of Science and Engineering at TUM since 2016 and forges new paths for training young scientists.
About the SFB 1313 Anneliese Niethammer Lecture Series
Anneliese Niethammer was the first female professor of the University of Stuttgart in 1947. The lecture series, dedicated to Anneliese Niethammer, is organised by the Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 1313 and takes place once a semester. Renowned international female researchers speak on relevant topics of current research in the research area of porous media.
