Mission Statement

The core research topics of the Computational Science Center 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:


Article in Krone newspaper "Laserblitz und Donner" by O. Scherzer

Otmar Scherzer presented in "Kronenzeitung" within the weekly column "Krone der Wissensschaft" the ideas and the scopes of the SFB project "Tomography Across the Scales". The article (in german) addresses the general principles of tomography (computed and photoacoustic). The article can be acquired on PressReader.

SFB goes to Banff, Canada

Otmar Scherzer was a member of the organizing committee of the “Reconstruction Methods for Inverse Problems” workshop in Banff, Canada, June 23-28, 2019. This workshop brought together researchers working on inverse problems coming from medical imaging, non destructive testing, computer vision and geophysics. The PI of sub-project “Quantitative Coupled Physics Imaging”, Peter Elbau and the post-doctoral researcher of the sub-project “Tomography with Uncertainties”, Ekaterina Sherina presented their recent work related to our SFB project “Tomography Across the Scales”.

Saving lives with mathematics

“Die Presse” printed an an interview with Otmar Scherzer on combining PAT and OCT to detect tumors. (“innovationorigins” published an english version of similar content).

This research is being done within the SFB Tomography Across the Scales.
