Seamless integration of teaching, research and applications An innovative, integrated approach forms the core framework of the teaching, research and practical applications of the Faculty.

Our study programmes evolve naturally from our research activities, so that students of all levels have opportunity to work directly on software development projects that have real-world impact for business, the public, and the international research community.
Our teaching offer comprises all three levels of studies: Bachelor, Master and PhD. Our jewels in the crown are our European Masters degrees, which foresee periods of study at partner universities and a double degree.

We are particualrly committed to research. An excellent infrastructure and an international and dynamic teaching body create the ideal environment for this and our research projects are internationally recognised and financed through national and European funds, with frequent contributions from local companies and public institutions.

Our strong focus on research does not make us neglect real-world applications. Our Faculty works in close collaboration with local entities, organises common endeavours and addresses actual demands of enterprises, local government and schools.

Adaptive Computational Methods for Partial Differential Equations - An IDSE seminarExternal eventsPartial Differential Equations (PDEs) are an essential tool in the modelling of physical models. The calculus-based models originate from the laws of classical mechanics, electromagnetics, quantum mechanics and relativity. They have been extended to cover other areas of science and technology. Since these models assume continuous space-time, their computer simulation must necessarily rely on approximation algorithms (as opposed to exact ones). The approximation algorithms are known as discretizations. The speed of convergence is thus the essential barrier to be overcome for a computational method to be of practical use. Adaptive methods are accelerated convergence relying on a nonlinear algorithmic feedback between the approximate-solution data and the underlying discretization parameters such as the mesh, time-step, function spaces, geometric representation. In this talk I will give an overview of the general research on this topic, then discuss my own contributions for time-dependent problems and nonlinear or geometric problems.

Micro, meso and macro scales in complex systems - An IDSE seminarExternal events The general approach that allows to construct the Markov processes describing various processes in mathematical biology or social sciences is going to be presented. The Markov processes describe at the micro- scale level the behavior of a large but finite number of interacting individuals. The infinite limit is going to be discuss where the intermediate level (the meso-scale level) is given in terms of nonlinear kinetic equations. Finally the corresponding systems of nonlinear ODEs (or PDEs) at the macroscopic level (in terms of densities of the interacting subpopulations) are obtained. The general framework is applied to propose the microscopic and mesoscopic models that correspond to well-known systems of nonlinear equations in biomathematics.

Computing beyond Moore’s law - An IDSE seminarExternal eventsRecent developments in high-performance computing are radically changing the way we do numerics as applied mathematicians. It has become harder and harder to produce faster processors due to too much heat, too high power consumption, and current leakage problems. If we want our application to benefit from the continued performance growth, it will need to exploit a high degree of concurrency. And that is putting us at a fundamental turning point in software development. Much computation in numerical analysis depends on solving linear algebra problems, such as solving systems of linear equations and least squares problems, computing eigenvalues and singular values of matrices. In this seminar, the author’s research towards the design of novel classes of highly parallel numerical linear algebra methods with linear or almost linear complexity is presented. The application of these methods to solving scientific and industrial problems arising in computational electromagnetics, electrophysiology, fusion research, and computational fluid dynamics is discussed.Room 102, Dominikanerplatz 3 - Piazza Domenicani, 3, 39100 Bozen-BolzanoBruno Carpentieri, Reader in Applied Mathematics at the School of Science and Technology, Nottingham Trent University
