WG Industrial Mathematics
Leitung: Prof. Dr. Peter MaaßThe working group industrial mathematics covers a broad field of research and application from life sciences and engineering sciences. The mathematical research focuses on
- inverse problems
- mathematical image and signal processing
- sparse representation
- numerical analysis
- parameter identification
Collaborative Research Center SFB 747), now there is also an industrial project (with BEGO GmbH) running, dealing with optimized production of dental prostheses.
Already since 2007, analysis of mass spectrometry data belongs to the research areas of the industrial mathematics group. The interdisciplinary bioinformatics group particularly develops applications for MALDI imaging, a mass spectrometry imaging technique for analyzing biological tissue samples.
In addition to microbiology, botany and pharmacology, the bioinformatics group deals with the use of MALDI imaging in pathological diagnostics. The group cooperates closely with partners from clinical pathology and biomedical research, with the Bremen company Bruker Daltonik, the global market leader for MALDI imaging mass spectrometer, as well as the software company SCiLS, founded in 2013 as a ZeTeM spin-off and meanwhile being a branch office of Bruker.
Within the project MPI², funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), these challenges are to be tackled together with industrial-medical partners by mathematical research to lay the foundations for a clinical application of this technology.
