Der Sonderforschungsbereich geht in die dritte Förderphase
  • Date: 16.06.2020, 12:17
  • Mitteilung der TUB

    Der Sonderforschungsbereich/Transregio 109 „Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics“ (Sfb/TRR 109) geht in die dritte Förderphase. Von 2020 bis 2024 wird die Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft das Projekt mit insgesamt mehr als sieben Millionen Euro finanzieren. Der Mathematiker Prof. Dr. Alexander Bobenko, Professor für Geometrie an der TU Berlin, ist Sprecher des Sfb/TRR 109. Der Sonderforschungsbereich untersucht die „Diskretisierung“ von geometrischen Strukturen und dynamischen Prozessen, also wie glatte geometrische Objekte wie etwa geschwungene Oberflächen in einfache Grundbausteine und kontinuierlich ablaufende dynamische Prozesse wie etwa die Flugbahnen von Satelliten in diskrete Teilschritte zerlegt werden können. Der gemeinsame Nenner dieser Forschung auf dem Gebiet von Geometrie und Dynamik ist es, diskrete Modelle zu finden und zu untersuchen, die Eigenschaften und Strukturen aufweisen, die charakteristisch für die korrespondierenden glatten geometrischen Objekte und dynamischen Prozesse sind. Ziel ist, nicht nur einzelne Gleichungen, sondern gleich die gesamten zugrundeliegenden Theorien zu diskretisieren. So entsteht mit der diskreten Theorie eine neue mathematische Grundlage, die die klassische Theorie im kontinuierlichen Grenzwert liefert, wenn man die diskreten Modelle verfeinert.
