GAMM 2013

Next week the 84th Annual Meeting of the International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik, GAMM) will take place in Novi Sad, Serbia. I will a giva a talk in the Young Researchers’ Minisymposium “Scale-bridging modeling and simulation – methodological and computational aspects” organized by Felix Fritzen.

Please note that for the first time at a GAMM conference, we have organized a poster exhibition on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 from 15:00 — 16:30 at the University of Novi Sad.

New article published in SISC

SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing (image taken from

Andreas Bartel, Markus Brunk, Michael Günther, and I have published a new article in the current issue 35(2) of SIAM’s Journal of Scientific Computing (Section: Computational Methods in Science and Engineering). The paper discusses dynamic iteration for coupled problems of electric circuits and distributed devices.

Challenge Workshop MSO-Tools 2012

On September 25th, I will give an invited talk on "Coupled Problems in Computational Electromagnetics" at the Challenge Workshop MSO-Tools 2012 in Berlin.
The talk discusses recent advances in the computation of electromagnetic fields, i.e., computational electromagnetics, coupled with additional multiphysical phenomena, i.e., computational multiphysics. In particular, the focus is put on new hardware-oriented models and methods related to contemporary Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) and other future many-core architectures, that may change coupling paradigms (‘Optimize data movement, not Flops’).

DMV Tagung, Köln

Auf der Tagung des deustchen Mathematikerverbandes habe ich einen Vortrag zum “Mehrskalenverfahren für die Feld- und Netzwerkkopplung” gehalten: es wurden vor allem Mehrskalenverfahren in der Zeit für die schwachgekoppelte Simulation von räumlichverteilten elektromagnetischen Bauteilen mit elektrischen Netzwerken besprochen.
