Our research

The research focus for the Division of Numerical Analysis is on numerical methods for the solution of partial differential equations, stochastic differential equations and numerical linear algebra. This encompasses a wide range of methods, including finite difference, finite element and boundary integral methods, multi scale methods, Krylov methods and Monte Carlo methods. Applications are found within diverse fields such as for example electro magnetics, fluid mechanics, financial mathematics, quantum mechanics, biology and medicine.
