Fields of research

  • numerical solution of "large", sparse matrix equations
  • parallel algortihms in numerical linear algebra
  • efficient algorithms for H2 model order reduction
  • development of mathmematical software
Additionally I maintain the compute cluster otto of our institute.


Software: M.E.S.S. now available also in C, Python and via MEX for Matlab.

July 13, 2018
MESSThe M-M.E.S.S. toolbox for Matlab is getting reinforcements. In version 1.0.0 today the C-based implementation with bindings for python and Matlab (via MEX) has been released. As of today, the C version does not support solvers for differential matrix equations, but comes with a couple of features, that are still missing in M-M.E.S.S..
