Research cooperations with industry have been a long-standing strength of mathematics in Linz. The RICAM transfer group works on mathematical problems motivated by industrial applications arising in the partner companies. Together with the Industrial Mathematics Competence Center at MathConsult, research activities are currently carried out in the following fields:
- Fast numerical solvers for differential equations in industrial applications
- Surrogate models in industrial applications
- Inverse problems and optimization
Motivation for these problems arises, e.g., in multiphysics problems, in automotive simulation or in mathematical finance. Frequently, similar mathematical techniques can successfully be applied to quite different fields of industrial background.
