Van Gijzen brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the centre, and he is committed to further developing the centre into a knowledge hub and go-to portal for high performance computing expertise at the TU Delft.
Navigating the Uncharted Waters of Fluid MechanicsFluid mechanics, the scientific study of how liquids move and interact, plays an indispensable role in advancing our scientific understanding of the world around us. It is part of the bedrock upon which many areas of science, from physics and engineering to medicine and even ecology, are built. As it stands, science has already deciphered much of its intricate landscape. Yet, many open problems continue to be a frontier of uncharted knowledge, part of which Manuel Gnann’s Vidi research aims to explore.

[AN] Nick Lindemulder: Cauchy problem for singular-degenerate porous medium type equations: well-posedness and Sobolev regularityMotivated by mathematical models for biofilm growth, we consider Cauchy problems for quasilinear parabolic equations where the diffusion coefficient has a degeneracy of porous medium type as well as a singularity. We discuss results on the well-posedness and Sobolev regularity of solutions. The proofs rely on m-accretive operator theory and averaging lemmas.
This is based on joint work with Stefanie Sonner.
We focus on Functional Analysis and Operator Theory with applications to the study of (partial) differential equations, both deterministic and non-deterministic.
We cover a large spectrum of research areas in probability theory, going from very application-driven towards fundamental research.
Discrete Mathematics & Optimization
Mathematical optimization lies at the heart of many techniques in economy, econometrics, process control, and so on.
We work on mathematical modeling of physical phenomena, often leading to systems of (partial) differential equations.
Our research program concentrates on the development and application of computing methods to the applied sciences.
