AICES Associated Fellow Pascal Richter Recognized for Best Presentation of the DMV Conference

Every year, the German Mathematical Society DMV invites young researchers to give presentations on their theses. This year, AICES associated fellow Pascal Richter has been selected as giving the best presentation overall for his talk on "Modelling and simulation of direct steam generation in solar thermal power plants." Pascal's thesis was supervised by Professor Martin Frank from MathCCES. Pascal Richter received his Diploma degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from RWTH Aachen University. He started as an AICES associated fellow in December 2011.

Nature Cell Biology Paper on Feedback Loops in Murine Stem-Cells

AICES-researchers Bernhard Schuldt, Michael Lenz and Andreas Schuppert contributed to a new study investigating the effect of Nanog-dependent feedback loops in murine embryonic stem cells recently published on-line in Nature Cell Biology (doi:10.1038/ncb2603). The study was the result of an international cooperation of scientists from the University of Southampton, the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, the University of Kiel and the Schuppert group at AICES / RWTH Aachen. The AICES contribution extends prior work on pluripotency prediction (PMID:21378979, Nature Methods April 2011) to investigate the effect of a controlled perturbation in a small core pluritpotency network on global, whole genome scale gene expression.

Prof. Thomas J.R. Hughes for the Charlemagne Distinguished Lecture Series in Aachen

Thomas J. R. Hughes

As the fifth speaker of the Charlemagne Distinguished Lecture Series, the AICES fellows invited the American engineer and mathematician Thomas J.R. Hughes. Dr. Hughes is Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at the University of Texas, Austin. He is distinguished for his fundamental contributions to the development of the Finite Element Method and has pioneered computational methodologies that are widely employed throughout the computational mechanics community. He is among the most highly cited authors in scientific computing and his outstanding contributions to science and society have been recognized by many awards from international institutions and universities.

The topic of Professor Hughes' talk was Isogeometric Analysis. He summarized mathematical developments in Isogeometric Analysis, a field within Finite Element Analysis, which he pioneered and presented sample applications to problems of solid mechanics, structures and fluid mechanics.

As expected, Professor Hughes' talk was a striking success and attended by a large audience of about 150 researchers and students. During several meetings, the AICES fellows seized the opportunity to personally meet Professor Hughes, as well as to raise and discuss professional questions.
