Computational Mathematics

Research group The objective of the research group in Computational mathematics at Umeå University is to conduct research on novel computational methods for the solution of partial and stochastic differential equations.

Furthermore, our group promotes these novel computational methods in application arising in education, science and engineering. Our research is cross-disciplinary and located in the intersection between mathematics, computer science, physics and applications.
