Research in the Department of Applied Mathematics, faculty of EEMCS

The focus of research in the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Twente can best be characterized as Engineering Mathematics. This means that most research is carried out in the niche areas of different engineering disciplines which need original mathematical contribution for real breakthroughs. Current research may broadly be divided into four areas:

1)  Operations Research and Statistics:
Combinatorial Optimization, Mathematical Programming, Supply Chain Management, Queuing Theory, Telecommunications Networks, Industrial Statistics.

2)  Financial Engineering:
Pricing and Hedging of Financial Derivatives, Financial Econometrics, Computational Finance, Optimal Asset Allocation, Insurance Mathematics.

3)  Systems and Control:
Nonlinear and Robust Control, Hamiltonian Modeling of Open Physical Systems, Hybrid Systems, Distributed-Parameter Systems, Stochastic Filtering and Control.

4)  Applied Analysis and Computational Mechanics:
Mathematical Modeling of Waves, Inverse Problems in Seismology, Integrated Optics, Numerical Analysis, Turbulent Flows, Computational Fluid Dynamics.

Most of the research is supported by external funding, which includes Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research, Technological Foundation STW, European Community Programs, Financial Institutions and Industries. Despite diverse sources of support, the goal remains fundamental research on mathematics problems arising in different engineering disciplines.

New research results may appear in our Memoranda series, the internal reports of the Department of Applied Mathematics.
