Applied mathematics has its origin in problems connected to mechanics, elasticity and fluid dynamics. Methods developed for studying such systems proved to be suitable for modelling systems within several disciplines. Today applied mathematics describes an interdisciplinary activity where modern mathematical methods and calculations are used by means of computers in order to analyse systems within several disciplines.
The activity is focused on models associated with:
- non-linear optics and laser physics
- response theory for atomic and molecular systems
- climate dynamics
- mathematics and finance
The group of applied mathematics is doing research and is advising master and PhD students within all these five problem domains.
