Numerical methods

Working Group 8.43


The research focus of the group is the development and application of numerical methods for metrology. 

A main area of interest is the treatment of statistical inverse problems which require the solution of partial differential equations (PDEs). A key problem here is the very high computational cost, which often makes it unfeasible to solve the inverse problem in a reasonable time. For this purpose, different methods of Uncertainty Quantification, Bayesian Inversion and Machine Learning are used in the applications. The application areas are:


  • Inverse problems in optics and nanometrology
  • Electrophysiology of the heart
  • Inverse problem in hemodynamics
