The Graduiertenkolleg was founded in 2004 at the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Göttingen and is supported by the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). The thesis topics cover a broad range connecting theoretical mathematical problems, application relevant problems from numerical analysis and statistics, and interdisciplinary projects in collaboration with members of other sciences.
