New DFG Research Unit

SNuBIC (short title for Structure-preserving Numerical Methods for Bulk and Interface-Coupling of Heterogeneous Models) is a team of researchers recently funded by the German Research Foundation under the grant number DFG-FOR5409 to investigate the modeling and simulation of coupled systems described by partial differential equations (PDEs).

New GAMM activity group founded

A new GAMM activity group entitled “Modelling, Analysis and Simulation of Molecular Systems” has be founded by Prof. Reinhold Schneider (TU Berlin), Prof. Gero Friesecke (TU Munich) and Prof. Benjamin Stamm (RWTH Aachen, MathCCES). Check out the new homepage for more informations:

Cover page of Journal of Chemical Physics

The recent article by Benjamin Stamm entitled “A new discretization for the Polarizable Continuum Model within the domain decomposition paradigm” has been chosen as the journal cover featured in Volume 144 Issue 5 on February 7, 2016. This represents a big honour and is the consequence of a well-established collaboration between applied Mathematicians and theoretical Chemists in the framework of solvation models, see A link to the manuscript is featured on the Journal of Chemical Physics website at:

Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics

The January 2016 issue of Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics features an invited article by Manuel Torrilhon on “Modeling Nonequilibrium Gas Flow based on Moment Equations”. Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics publishes about 20 articles per year exclusively by invitation and is considered the highest ranked journal in the field of mechanics. More Informations.

SIAM Student Chapter @ RWTH Aachen University

A new SIAM Student Chapter has been established at RWTH Aachen University. The purpose of the chapter is to generate interest in applied mathematics and computational science by providing students opportunities to:

  • Share ideas and improve communication across different research groups
  • Explore career opportunities in academia and industry
  • Organize seminars on applied mathematics with representatives from industry

Check out the Chapter web page for more information and upcoming events!


Many of the MathCCES members participated at the SIAM CSE 2015 conference. This awesome video gives a glimpse of what this conference had to offer.

Bringing Computational Sciences to Schools

The Computational and Mathematical Modeling Program (CAMMP) brings together students and faculty from both high schools and university to introduce the basics of computational modeling through hands-on exploration. Working intensively over the course of a week, students, with contributions from the teachers and university researchers, will construct a solution to a challenging mathematical problem. The second CAMMP will take place June 24-29, 2012 at the Youth Hostel Voeren (Belgium). Participants from Belgium, Luxemburg and the Netherlands, together with Germans, are especially encouraged to partcicpate. CAMMP is organized by Martin Frank, MathCCES; Ahmed E. Ismail, Molecular Simulations and Transformations; and Nicole Faber, AICES Graduate School.

Lunch Seminar, Thursdays

During the semester we have Lunch Talks every Tuesday, 12:00.
