CWI researcher Willem Hundsdorfer has been appointed part-time professor at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. As of May 1, 2009, he holds the chair of Numerical Mathematics at the Faculty of Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science. He will study mathematical aspects of numerical methods for evolution equations.
Willem Hundsdorfer works as a senior researcher at CWI in the research group Multiscale Modelling and Nonlinear Dynamics (MAS3). At CWI, he studies numerical methods for evolution equations and its applications. Examples are atmospheric transport-chemistry models, and gas-discharge models in cooperation with Ute Ebert. Numerical methods and computer simulations are increasingly used in many applied sciences, putting an ever increasing demand on the reliability of simulations and the computational efficiency of the underlying numerical algorithms.
