Systems theory focused research groups based at Aalen University

Our research focus covers all aspects of the fields of systems theory and control, especially mathematically-orientated and theoretical topics that have a clear relevance to physics, engineering and economical sciences, and even design.

We are comprised of four research groups led by Prof. Mahyar Mahinzaeim, Prof. Claus Feuchter, Prof. Dieter William Joenssen, and Prof. Frank Thomas Gärtner.

If you are interested in systems theory with an emphasis on such fields as

– PDEs– Impact analysis of data quality
– Stability theory– Machine learning
– Spectral theory of operators– Optimization and control
– Dynamical systems on networks– Statistical methods
– Mathematics of Lattice Boltzmann (LB) methods– Monte Carlo methods
– DNS/LES of turbulent flows– Analytical design methods
– Direct aeroacoustics– UX design
– Microfluids– Innovation and industrial experience

then we are interested in working with you! You could become part of one of the four research groups, receive outstanding mentoring and get involved in cutting-edge research.
