Welcome to the webpage
of the Research Group on

Applied Mathematics
and Modeling

Logo of the University of Vienna
Our research is focusing on modeling and analysis issues with applications in Physics and Engineering. We are interested in models in Materials Science, from the atomic to the macroscale, as well as on evolution problems. The involved mathematics falls often within the frame of the calculus of variations and partial differential equations. Further details can be found on our research webpage.


Elisa Davoli, Manuel Friedrich, and Riccardo Scala are organizing a workshop at the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematics and Physics (ESI) in Vienna, with the title "New trends in the variational modeling of failure phenomena" in the week August 20 - August 24, 2018. The list of speakers and further information can be found on the website


If you are interested, please register by sending an email within December 15th to rscala@fc.ul.pt.
At the end of Februrary 2018 Manuel Friedrich will move to the University of M√ľnster on an assistent professorship (W1). Congratulations Manuel!
Today Lara Trussardi starts as SFB postdoc of the group; moreover Pietro Vermicelli joins our group as DK Ph.D. student.
Giuliano Lazzaroni joins the group of Applied Mathematics and Modelling. He will be working on the GloVE project funded by FWF.
