Mathematikon Entrance

Our Faculty is the academic home of researchers, teachers, and students of Mathematics and Computer Science. Its institutes and facilities are housed in the Mathematikon, pleasantly located on the Campus Neuenheimer Feld of Heidelberg University. Welcome!

Mathematikon Seminar Room

The Doctorate signifies a proven ability to conduct independent scientific research. Under the auspices of the Combined Faculty of Mathematics, Engineering and Natural Sciences, we confer over 30 Doctoral degrees in the subjects of mathematics and computer science each year.

Mathematikon Library

Students interested in Mathematics, Computer Science, or an interdisciplinary field, pursuing a B.Sc., M.Sc., or M.Ed., and aiming for a career in research, teaching, or the private sector, will find here in Heidelberg a full range of first-class courses for a challenging and enriching educational experience in an intellectually stimulating environment with historical cachet.

Mathematikon Lobby

We seek to promote the interest in mathematics and computer science by organizing events for schools and for the broader public. Alumns and newcomers join in and contribute to shared knowledge and contacts.

High-Dimensional Approximation and Sampling in Uncertainty Quantification

Inaugural Lecture Prof. Jakob Zech, IWR, February 16, 2022, 16:15
Color Pattern

Abstract: Uncertainty quantification plays an important role in many engineering applications. In this talk we discuss some recent advancements in the approximation of high- dimensional functions appearing in this context. We provide new results for surrogate modeling and parameter estimation in cases where the uncertainty is described by a Gaussian random field. Additionally we address how the usage of neural networks to learn linear and nonlinear operators may help in solving such tasks, and what possible challenges might lie ahead.
