Research

Laufende Projekte:

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemics in 2020 we are working together with colleagues from all over the world on mathematical models and simulations for the dynamics of the disease spread.
We envisage to build a European digital environment and web-portal for applied and industrial mathematics. More immediate goal is to share information and experience, describe examples of web based courses in applied mathematics and technologies for web publication of interactive documents.
Anthropogene Umweltveränderungen wie z.B. der Klimawandel beeinflussen indirekt die Übertragungsdynamik von global bedeutenden Infektionskrankheiten, vermittelt durch Veränderungen in der Verbreitung der Vektoren. Ziel dieses Projektes ist die Entwicklung von neuen mathematischen Modellen, die die adäquate Berücksichtigung von direkten und indirekten anthropogenen Effekten in epidemiologische Gleichungen ermöglichen. Als Modellsystem wird Dengue-Fieber verwandt, welches sich in den letzten Jahren zu einer globalen Herausforderung für die Gesundheitsfürsorge entwickelt hat. Die Krankheit ist heute in mehr als 100 Staaten verbreitet, die Gefahr eines Ausbruchs besteht auch in Europa.

Abgeschlossene Projekte:

The project BBE's Groups - Business, Engineering and Education Study Groups - is a series of three week-long study groups with industry. The study group workshops are devoted to consideration and solving of several specific problems posed by industrial companies
Muscles plays prominente role in human motion. The aim of this project is to develop, analyze and apply mathematical models for human muscles.
Degue fever is a mosquito-borne infection and major health concern in various regions worldwide. Deterministic and also stochastic models have been proposed to describe the spread of Dengue. Mathematical tools from optimal control can help to simulate, predict and improve the effectiveness of campaigns against the disease. The projects aims to combine the expertise of the German and the Portuguese partners to be able to answer optimization questions for complex models reflecting the infection dynamics of Dengue.
