Applied and Computational Mathematics

In our group of applied and computational mathematics (anvendt og beregningsorientert matematikk, ABM), important research areas are: fluid mechanics and ocean modeling, industrial mathematics and reservoir simulations, image processing, geometric integration and scientific computing.

The need for using mathematics and computations to solve fundamental problems in science, technology, medicine, industry, is strongly increasing. By a combination of experiments, observations, theory development, modeling and numerical simulations, it is possible to gain deeper insight into complicated processes. Numerical computations have been important for many years in fields of mathematics, physics and geology; however, also  subjects like biology, chemistry, geology and medicine are becoming increasingly dependent on mathematical modelling and simulations.
