Mathematical Analysis

The role of applied mathematics in this interdisciplinary graduate school is to provide the basic methodologies for the analytical and numerical treatment of the processes coupled via interfaces arising in various applications. Within this area of research, treatment of the interface problems will be based on mixed finite element methods or the coupling of finite elements and boundary elements in conjunction with multiscale methods for spatial and temporal scales which are described in the application problems defined in the engineering projects. The advantage of mixed approaches is that process variables directly involved in the interface coupling, like in the domain decomposition approach for scale bridging, are approximated by suitable finite element spaces. This leads to simpler coupling formulations in combination with more accurate approximations. Both h- and p-refinements are investigated. A toolbox of suitable procedures for the treatment of interface coupling is created together with the scientists from the other groups in MUSIC.
