Information about Prof. Dr. Malte Braack


Malte Braack studied Mathematics at Hamburg University. In 1998 he earned his doctorate in Mathematics at the University of Heidelberg. He carried out a Post-doc phase at INRIA in Sophia- Antipolis and finished the habilitation in 2005 at the University of Heidelberg. Since 2006 he is Professor of Applied Mathematics in the Mathematical Seminar at Kiel University. He is member of the Cluster of Excellence ‘Future Ocean’. He is also member of the DF G Priority Programms 1253 (‘Optimization with Partial Differential Equations’) and 1276 (‘MetStröm’).

Research questions

Most of the research of Malte Braack is related to efficient and accurate numerical methods for partial differential equationss. Central research questions include:

  • To what extend may adaptive methods help to reduce the numerical costs of solving partial differential equations? This is particulary interesting in connection with flow problems, e.g. ocean flows or atmospheric flows.
  • How do we control the effect of under resolution ?
  • What is the most efficient way of discretize partial differential equations?
  • How may adaptive modelling help to solve complex problems including multi-physical or chemical phenomena?
