Department of Mathematics and Computer Science

Currently, 12 professors, 29 other scientific employees and about 200 students are working at our department. In general there is an atmosphere of cooperation between all groups. Professors and tutors are accessible at all times and students have the opportunity to actively take part in shaping there studies.

Our department offers the subject Biomathematics (Bachelor and Master) which is unique in Germany and the subject Mathematics (Bachelor with Computer Science and Master). What is Biomathematics? (article from the journal "Forschung und Lehre", Heft 6, 2015) Biomathematicians are educated to be specialists in interdisciplinary cooperation and mathematicians to be experts for complex interrelationships. Both profiles are highly appreciated at the labor market. 

In the winter semester 2016/17 two new subjects are introduced: Bachelor "Mathematics" and teaching "Mathematics at secondary schools".

Furthermore, students of other faculties who minor in Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science are educated at our department. Top-performing students of our department participate in the teaching as tutors. 

One key area of research is Biomathematics. Other fields of research are Quantum Stochastics, Differential Operators of Manifolds, Fractals and Time Series Analysis, Computability and Complexity theory and Optimal Control. The complete names of the professorships and their areas of research are described on the pages of the professors and their employees.
