Simulation Science Center Clausthal / Göttingen

Simulation Science Center Clausthal / Göttingen (SWZ) is a common interdisciplinary research facility in simulation science of Clausthal University of Technology and University of Göttingen. The core research areas of the SWZ are on developments in mathematical modeling and simulation techniques as well as general simulation methodology and its real world applications such as simulation and optimization of networks, material simulation, distributed simulation, etc. which requires to develop techniques of modeling, analysis, and design for the particular system that are relevant to that specific discipline. In this context the power of simulation lies in the three R´s of science and engineering, namely: reductionism, repeatability, and refutation. Reductionism recognizes that any system can be decomposed into a set of components that follows fundamental laws of science and engineering. Thus, the diversity of the real world can be reduced into laboratory experiments, which can be validated by their repeatability, and one can make intellectual progress by the refutation of hypothesis. Therefore, modeling and simulation are very important methods in science and engineering and have become a central activity in all disciplines in science and engineering which allow to analyze systems accurately under varying operation conditions and/or scenarios to predict the system behavior before the system is actually built.

The SWZ is co-founder of the Clausthal-Göttingen International Workshop on Simulation Science.
