Research Areas

In form and content the Simulation Science Center Clausthal / Göttingen focus on simulation methodology and its applications. Therefore, the integrated SWZ research groups at Clausthal University of Technology and University of Göttingen work together on simulation methods and their applications within the scientific domains of mutual interest.

Current research topics of the Simulation Science Center Clausthal-Göttingen are dedicated to the following research areas:

These research areas can be allocated below more general focus e.g. methodological aspects. But underlining the inclusive idea as a Center such categorization is being unconsidered.

However, the methodological aspects of research remain as affiliating and superior elements. For example, high-performance computing (HPC) which is a novel topic in simulation applications which require an extremely high processing power and/or storage capacity. Applications for HPC are available in the different areas of natural and technical sciences, e.g. astro- and particle physics, aviation, chemistry, fluid mechanics, genetics, meteorology and climatology, solid state physics, system biology, virtual and augmented reality, etc.
