Upcoming and Past Seminars

"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. MathSEED through its umbrella graduate school offers a comprehensive program for early career researchers and master students to foster interdisciplinary training. Our graduate school KCDS provides structured program for doctoral students in computational and data science. MathSEE offers to strengthen interdisciplinary mathematical research at KIT and its visibility.

BMBF Project: SmartWeather21

Together with Charlotte Debus (SCC), Markus Götz (SCC) and Patrick Ludwig (IMKTRO), Sebastian Lerch (STAT) and Julian Quinting (IMKTRO) receive funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF) for their SmartWeather21 project: "Smart weather predictions for the 21st century through probabilistic AI-models initialized with strom-resolving climate projections." The project is funded as a part of the WarmWorld initiative and has the overarching aim to enabling the exploration of future weather in a warming climate by coupling AI-based weather models to high-resolution climate model simulations. 

Climate Prize of the Reinhard-Süring Foundation

Fabian Mockert was awarded the Climate Prize of the Reinhard-Süring Foundation during the 13th German Climate Conference at the Telegrafenberg in Potsdam. The prize honors his research on Dunkelflauten in Germany and their relation with large-scale weather patterns. The meteorological Reinhard-Süring Foundation awards the €1500 prize as part of the triennial German Climate Conference to outstanding young scientists.

MathSEE Members part of the new EU consortium FALCON

EU Project FALCON: "Foreseeing the next generation of Aircraft: hybrid approach using Lattice-boltzmann, experiments and modelling to optimize fluid/struCture interactiONs", combines experimental and numerical approaches in fluid and solid mechanics in order to enhance the design capabilities of the European industrial aircraft sector by focusing on fluid–structure interaction (FSI). The project started in Jan. 2024 for a duration of 4 years.

Patent at MathSEE: Vibration damping system

Dr. Jimmy Alberto Aramendiz Fuentes and Prof. Alexander Fidlin have successfully obtained a patent from the German Patent and Trade Mark Office for a selectively acting vibration damping concept. One of the tasks of such a system is to reduce vibration amplitudes with high effectiveness and minimal energy losses.

For details we refer you to Prof. Fidlin.

New project: SPARC-ML financed by the German Weather Service

Sebastian Lerch (STAT) and Peter Knippertz (IMKTRO) receive a 4-year grant (01.2024 - 12.2027) from the German Weather Service for their SPARC-ML project as part of the extra mural research program. The overall goal of the project is the development of generative machine learning methods for the post-processing of ensemble weather forecasts.

Meet the Speaker: Prof. Jeremy Avigad - Mathematics and the Formal Turn

Meet the Speaker: Prof. Jeremy Avigad - Mathematics and the Formal Turn

July 15, 2024 17:30 - 18:30KIT, Campus Süd Geb. 10.11, Heinrich-Hertz-Hörsaal Kaiserstraße 12 76131 Karlsruhe
Since the early twentieth century, it has been understood that mathematical definitions and proofs can be represented in formal systems with precise grammars and rules of use. Building on such foundations, computational proof assistants now make it possible to encode mathematical knowledge in digital form. In this talk, I'll explore some of the ways that these and related technologies can help us do mathematics.
Jeremy Avigad is a professor of philosophy and a professor of mathematical sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. He received a B.A. in mathematics from Harvard University in 1989, and a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1995 under the supervision of Jack Silver. He has contributed to the areas of mathematical logic and foundations, formal verification and interactive theorem proving, and the philosophy and history of mathematics. He became Director of the Hoskinson Center for Formal Mathematics at Carnegie Mellon University after Charles Hoskinson donated $20 Million in September 2021 to establish it.
For some insightful discussions afterwards, and to meet with the speaker, we invite you to join us over dinner in downtown Karlsruhe right after the talk. If you would like to join in for dinner, please register by sending an email to (no registration needed for attending the talk).
The talk & the dinner are aimed at a broad scientific audience and everyone is welcome to attend!
