Former AICES Fellow Receives Prestigious John Todd Award


The Oberwolfach Foundation and the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach have decided to award the John Todd Award 2013 to Dr. Markus Bachmayr.

The John Todd Fellowship is awarded about every three years to young excellent mathematicians working in numerical analysis. It comes with an award of Euro 1.000.

Markus Bachmayr currently works as a scientific employee at the Institut für Geometrie und Praktische Mathematik, RWTH Aachen University. His current main area of research is the analysis and implementation of adaptive numerical methods for high-dimensional partial differential equations, in particular the complexity analysis of methods for computing low-rank tensor approximations with rigorous error control

Congratulations, Markus!

Why Are Old Stem Cell Lines Often Researched?

The study “ Power Laws and the Use of Embryonic Stem Cell Lines” conducted by AICES Professor Andreas Schuppert has been published on January 2, 2013 by the journal PLOS One. The scientists’ hypothesis was that despite of the existence of a steadily increasing number of human embryonic stem cell lines, there is a preferential use for only a few lines.

Excellence Initiative

RWTH Aachen University and the Excellence Initiative

On the 23rd of June 2005, the German federal and state governments agreed on an initiative to promote top-level research in Germany. The Excellence Initiative aims to strengthen science and research in Germany and to improve the quality of German universities and research institutions, thereby making a significant contribution to strengthening science and research in Germany in the long term, improving its international competitiveness, and raising the profile of the top performers in academia and research.





RWTH insight 01/2008

Pilot of the excellence process

RWTH Aachen University is receiving funding for all three funding lines within the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments. The AixIni-Team carries out project support and monitoring for the implementation of the Institutional Strategy "RWTH 2020: Meeting Global Challenges".



RWTH insight 03/2007

RWTH is excellent!

On the 23rd of June 2005, the German federal and state governments agreed on an initiative to promote top-level research at German universities with the longterm goal to strengthen science and research in Germany in a sustainable manner. The total funding budget of the Excellence Initiative sums up to 1.9 billion Euros for a period of 5 years between 2006 and 2011, and accordingly 2007 and 2012, as there were two rounds of proposals.

A new doctoral program under the auspices of the Excellence Initiative of the German state and federal governments was established in November 2006.




RWTH Themen 02/2007

Computational Engineering Science - A new engineering section

This issue of the "RWTH Themen" explores a new, quickly developing, field of research: Computational Engineering Science. Modern computational techniques are an invaluable component of every engineer's toolset and every scientist's laboratory. Yet, computational engineering and science are still much younger than engineering and science based on analytical or experimental methods alone, and can still be considered emerging disciplines.

Excellence Initiative: impulse for the future

The present issue of the science magazine "RWTH Themen" contains the clusters as well as the graduate school AICES promoted by the Excellence Initiative.
