Variational Modeling
of Carbon Nanostructures

Logo of the WWTF
Our research combines mathematical modeling and electron microscopy to investige lower-dimensional carbon configurations. Aim of the project is to address the fine geometry of graphene, nanotubes, and fullerenes as well as the emergence of defects. Further details can be found on our project page. This project is funded with the 2014 WWTF call "Mathematics and ..." and run jointly by the Research Groups in Applied Mathematics and Modeling and Disorder in Materials at the University of Vienna.


At the end of Februrary 2018 Manuel Friedrich will move to the University of M√ľnster on an assistent professorship (W1). Congratulations Manuel!
