TU-Professor Volker Mehrmann, Chair of the DFG Research Center Matheon and member of the BMS faculty, will receive a ERC Advanced Grant in the amount of 1.9 million Euro for his project “Modeling, Simulation and Regulation of Multi-Physics Systems.“
Multi-physics systems are dynamical systems, which form the basis for models in e.g., electronic circuit simulation, multi-body system dynamics, in chemical engineering as well as in many other fields of application. The automated modeling of such systems leads to huge mathematical problems in simulation and especially in model-based regulation and optimization. But these models help in the construction of prototypes and to avoid expensive experiments.
Mehrmann is the fourth BMS faculty member after Professor Olga Holtz, Professor Peter K. Friz and Professor Alexander Mielke to receive an ERC grant in 2010. In 2009, when the ERC advanced grants were first given out, Professor Günter M. Ziegler, deputy chair of the BMS, was among the recipients.
The European Research Council (ERC) was established by the European Union in 2007. It is the first EU corporate body fostering so-called “frontier research” projects. The only criterion in the selection of the projects is the researchers’ scientific excellence and the innovative potential of the research idea. The selection of projects is made regardless of nationality, age or research area.
