Students' Workshop 2014

The IGDK 1754 Student's Workshop is organized for and by graduate students. Its main objective is to stimulate a discussion and an exchange of ideas among the students in the doctoral college. The idea is to bring together graduate students with different mathematical backgrounds to tackle an interesting problem, proposed by a group member. It is an opportunity to work in a highly motivated team on a mathematical problem and ideally to obtain some interesting new results by combining the different skill sets.

The main part of the workshop will be group work, tackling the questions posed in the respective proposal. The proposals are formulated, presented and gradually improved in the run-up to the workshop. At the beginning of the workshop there will be a short presentation of each group, outlining the topic to the whole plenum as a result of the preparation prior to the workshop. In the groups there will be presentation of key concepts by different participants. The rest of the organization is left to the single groups. At the end of the week the results of the group work will be presented to the plenum.

Furthermore a summary of the workshop and its results will be presented at the annual colloquium of the IGDK 1754.


The workshop will take place at Palazzo dei Capitani in Malcesine at the Lake Garda in Italy, from 22.09. - 26.09.2014.


Concept Authors
Inverse gravimetric source problem with Mumford-Shah regularization Artina
Optimal control in skiing/snowboarding Keuthen
Fast reaction rates for a class of reaction diffusion systems Tang
Error estimates for optimal control problems Kimeswenger, Trautmann, Winkler


The first thing will be a a plenary session with short overviews over the group project given by one person from each group.
Afterwards, the participants will be split up in the groups.
On the last day, each group will have ca. 30~45 minutes to present their findings plus time for discussion.
