Master's Program Computational Sciences

The CRC 1114 initiated a novel interdisciplinary and international Master's program Computational Sciences, which has been successfully implemented in cooperation of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department with the Biology–Chemistry–Pharmacy, Geo-Sciences, and Physics Departments of FU Berlin. The aim is to train a generation of young scientists with interdisciplinary backgrounds, well versed in modern techniques of mathematical modelling and scientific computing, and with excellent backgrounds in at least one of the CRC’s application areas.

The Master’s program was launched in the winter semester 2016/17. Its curriculum combines mathematical and computational courses with courses in a natural science application field, currently to be chosen from molecular sciences, atmospherical sciences, or geosciences. The program directors Frank Noé and Rupert Klein are PIs in the CRC 1114.

SCCS Wiki

At the 4th PhD Workshop in July 2017, the PhD students initiated a “CRC 1114 Dictionary” and started working on definitions of some most prominent concepts and notions used in the specific languages of the various disciplines in the CRC. Particular efforts were made to identify and alleviate misunderstandings emerging from the lack of a common language: The same terms sometimes have different meanings in different disciplines while different terms may be used to denote the same facts. The CRC Dictionary was subsequently launched as a “SCCS Wiki” and presented to all CRC members at the SCCS Days in November 2017. CRC members committed to regularly contributing to the Dictionary, e.g., by adding major concepts and notions from their Colloquium talks. With the constant expansion of the CRC Dictionary, the CRC further intensifies its efforts towards overcoming scientific language barriers and enhancing interdisciplinary communication.

The SCCS Wiki is located at the FU Wiki portal https://wikis.fu-berlin.de/display/sccswiki and is accessible to the CRC members only.

To access the SCCS Wiki, you first need to login with your ZEDAT account to register within the system. Once being visible within the portal, the administrators have to add your account to the group of Wiki authors. Please send a request stating your ZEDAT username to tom.doerffel [at] fu-berlin.de. For CRC members without a ZEDAT account, the administrators can create an account only for the Wiki upon your request.

There is a short how-to article which will guide you through the basic steps of creating and editing entries. A link to it is located at the main page. All CRC members are invited to add, edit, or comment on Wiki entries.

SON 2016

7th International Workshop on Set Oriented Numerics

The community around the topic set oriented numerics established itself as integral part of the fields of dynamical systems and scientific computing over the last 20 years. In general, at the heart of the topic is some set playing a central dynamical role, and its interaction with the state space as a whole. Application areas include, but are not limited to, climate research, control theory, fluid dynamics, and molecular dynamics. The aim of this workshop is to bring together scientists from different fields, to discuss recent advances, and possible new directions in computational dynamics. This will be the seventh of a series of events.
