PhD Discussion

Denis Brazke (denis(dot)brazke(at)uni-heidelberg(dot)de)
Dr. Filip Klawe (klawe(at)math(dot)uni-heidelberg(dot)de)
Seminar time: Monday 13:00
Lecture place: 2/414 Mathematikon
Master and PhD students, as well as PostDocs of Mathematics
Knowledge of functional analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations are mandatory, but not necessary for full participation.
The PhD Discussion Group consists of members of young researchers from the Applied Analysis Group at the University of Heidelberg. Our main idea is to provide a platform which serves to freely discuss research, science, current projects and/or related topics without our supervisors in virtue of networking and closer collaboration within our group.

Participants prepare slides or an {\it informal talk} about topics, ideas and/or problems connected to a current research project. The talks are 30 to 45 minutes followed by a discussion. By {\it informal talk} we understand a presentation which may not fully cover the research project i.e. neither a full picture of the area of research, nor in depth details of all the arguments of the presented project are required to be part of the presentation (unlike presentations given e.g. in conferences or summer schools).

It is not only the results of projects we are interested in, but more so the ideas, methods and techniques. We are looking for presentations which allows the audience to ask questions and to understand the difficulty of the problem and its connection within various fields of mathematics in our group.

We welcome all students interested in applied analysis and are happy to share our areas of research and expertise. The main scope of the seminar covers the main working fields of the Applied Analysis Group, i.e. analysis of ordinary and partial differential equations, calculus of variations, modelling, as well as numerical methods and simulations applied to the aforementioned areas.
In previous semesters we organize a meeting of PhD Discussion Group. More informations and the topics of previous presentation you may find here.
