Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

Motivated by problems in different disciplines, mathematical modeling seeks to explain and understand phenomena in nature and technology by means of the mathematical language. This is an interdisciplinary field, that uses mathematical concepts for the progress of other sciences, including biology, physics, engineering, business, economics and risk management… This is as well an interdisciplinary topic as tools from different areas in mathematics can be exploited, e.g. differential equations, statistics, data science, numerical analysis, discrete mathematics, algebra and geometry.

Links to research groups

Researchers in the Barcelona area, and more generally in Catalonia, group themselves into smaller research groups, following not only academic but also administrative criteria, like location or research grants.
