More knowledge through smart calculations? Chances and limits of simulations

Simulations have become an essential part of scientific work, in almost all fields of research. Ever faster and larger computers and new mathematical methods enable detailed insights into processes, for example in porous media. Complicated processes such as underground flows can be calculated and visualized in detail in three dimensions with an accuracy that cannot be achieved with experimental measurements. This lecture shows how advances in mathematical methods enable completely new findings and insights. At the same time it provides to the questions of why simulations still cannot be "exact", what contribution mathematics can make to greater energy efficiency and what other exciting challenges will have to be solved in the future.

About the speaker

Prof. Miriam Mehl is the head of the Department for Simulation of Large Systems at the Institute for Parallel and Distributed Systems (IPVS) at the University of Stuttgart. She studied mathematics at the TU Munich, followed by a doctorate and habilitation in computer science. Since 2013, she has been working at the University of Stuttgart on mathematical and computer scientific aspects of simulation for a wide range of applications – from brain tumours to flow, acoustics and geothermal energy. Her research group is engaged in the development of intelligent mathematics, algorithms and software that make very large simulation models solvable on mainframe computers.
