Mission Statement

The Computational Science Center (CSC) is a research platform belonging to the faculties of Mathematics and Computer Science.

The core research topics of the CSC are Inverse Problems and Image Analysis. The common thread among these areas is a canonical problem of recovery of an object (function or image) from partial or indirect information. Particular research topics are:


Otmar Scherzer receives the 2018 EAIP award

The Eurasian Association on Inverse Problems (EAIP) is a non-governmental organization working to ensure a coordination between inverse problems research groups and scientific schools in Eurasian countries, by providing international conferences, meetings and summer schools on inverse problems, both in theory and applications.

The association has established an "EAIP Award" to recognize outstanding scientific contributions to the field of inverse problems and continuous efforts to foster cooperation between researchers of Eurasian countries.
