Mathematical Foundation of Dynamical Systems
The main research fields are Modeling and Model Reduction of nonlinear processes in chemical engineering and of cellular systems. Detailed models of high complexity are reduced by means of mathematical methods and tools to simpler ones. The reduced models still show the precision required for the specific task under consideration. In Systems Biology, with the interdisciplinary cooperation of biologists and computer scientists, mathematical models of amenable size and structure are established. The decomposition (modularization) of a network and the analysis of the resulting subnets (modules) and their interconnections present an approach that promises to be successful in tackling the manifold aspects of biological networks.
