Geomathematics and Geoinformatics Group


Geomathematics describes all aspects of geophysics, geosciences, or geoengineering that require the development of mathematical tools for the modeling of the underlying problem, the analysis of the model, or the numerical solution. In our group, we are particularly involved in the following topics:
  • potential field methods in (geo)magnetism and gravitation
  • inverse problems in geoscience
  • constructive approximation with spherical function systems

Geoinformatics puts a particular emphasis on the systematical processing of the available (geo)data. Among others, it researches modeling and visualization approaches for three-dimensional structures from micro- to macroscale as well as the development of mathematical methods, algorithms, data structures and software for handling the available data and models.
