Research interests

From my point of view, the field Numerical Analysis is best described as the connecting scientific discipline between theoretical considerations of physical phenomena which arise in engineering science and their numerical solution with the computer. In more detail, my scientific interest includes mostly partial differential equations and their fast numerical solution after discretization. This typically leads to large sparse linear systems of equations. The fast numerical solution of large-scale linear systems with iterative methods is a key problem in numerical linear algebra. During the last years, the following fields have been the focus of my scientific interest:
