Fraunhofer-Institut für Techno- und Wirtschaftsmathematik ITWM: Mathematics is technology

itwm_FhG_Kalender_2003

Mathematical methods make it possible to map reality in a way which computers can process and to deal usefully with large quantities of data or complex structures. When a company wants to improve its prod­­ucts, optimise production processes or find error sources, Fraunhofer ITWM works with the company’s experts to create a mathematical model of the problem, which is then evaluated by the computer. Sim­­u­­lations tailored to this process then find a solution that meets the requirements.

The expertise of Fraunhofer ITWM and the mathematical approach to practical problems perfectly complement engineer­­­ing and business management working methods and allow customer acquisition from many sectors, ranging from automo­­tive to energy providers, chemicals com­­­panies to financial service providers.

The focal points of the Fraunhofer In­­sti­­tute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM ac­­­­tiv­­ities, the first mathematical institute to be incorpo­­rated into the Fraunhofer-Ge­­sellschaft in the year 2001, are surface inspection, fi­­nancial mathe­­matics, vis­­­­u­­al­­isation of large quantities of data, optimisation of production process­­es, virtual material design and the analysis of three-dimensional microstructures.
