Team presentation

The project team Pomdapi is concerned with the construction and analysis of simulation tools for the modeling of environmental and energy problems. These tools include numerical approximation schemes for partial differential equations, nonlinear solvers, and numerical techniques in optimization and complementarity problems. We are equally interested in reliable and correct programming methods for the implementation of these tools.

Research themes

  • Applications
    • Flow and transport in the subsurface
    • Various problems in differentiable optimization
  • Mathematical techniques
    • Finite volume methods and mixed finite element methods
    • Domain decomposition and model coupling
    • Continuous and differentiable optimization, complementarity problems
    • Functional programming and formal proof for scientific computing
