The Chair for Systemsimulation (LSS) deals with simulation methods for physical,
continuous systems and their implementation on modern non-standard architectures and high
performance computers. Special interest is paid to the development of efficient and parallel
algorithms for the solution of simulation problems.
Multilevel methods are in the main focus of research. They have optimal algorithmical
complexity and are essential on super computers respectively the problem sizes considered there.
The LSS analyzes techniques for adaptive refinement as well as parallelization approaches.
Another point of major interest are Lattice Boltzmann
methods. These have proved to be robust and flexible discreitzation schemes for mult-phase
flows. In cooperation with chairs from mathematics and engineering these are extented by models
for simulating any kind of flows (e.g. nano particles and blood).
A third research topic is the numerical simulation of lasers and solar cells. The LSS
investigates the temporal behavior of lasers and solar cells in 3D and developes new methods for
the analysis of those. In the end, these techniques enable the optimization of the quality of the
A detailed description of the LSS is available here.
