"Mathematics in Sciences, Engineering, and Economics"

The KIT Center "MathSEE" (Mathematics in Sciences, Engineering, and Economics) pools the interdisciplinary mathematical research at KIT since October 2018. The Collaborative Research Center 1173 "Wave Phenomena: Analysis and Numerics" and other existing cooperations form the basis for the establishment of MathSEE. Our members from the career level doctoral researcher onwards work together in exchange formats and interdisciplinary research projects structured in Method Areas. Our graduate school MathSEED offers a comprehensive program for doctoral researchers and master students to foster interdisciplinary training. MathSEE offers to strengthen interdisciplinary mathematical research at KIT and its visibility.

Gaul Lecture at KIT Science Week by Caroline Uhler

We invite you most cordially to the lecture from Prof. Caroline Uhler, ETH Zürich, at the KIT science week on 06 October at 1500 hours. She works on statistically-methodologically highly current topics that lead to challenging optimization problems and require algorithmically sophisticated solutions. Her application focus at the moment is mainly biology and genetics with elementary causal biomedical problems.
