Ada-Lovelace-Award for two female mathematicians Ada-Lovelace-Award for two female mathematicians

Women’s promotion: University of Bonn’s Institute for Numerical Simulation honours the best graduation theses

University of Bonn’s Institute for Numerical Simulation honours the best female scientists’ results with the Ada-Lovelace-Award for the tenth time.This time, Karen Fischhuber and Vera Weber received this award for their graduation theses.

Karen Fischhuber’s master thesis „An adaptive Sparse Grid Approach for Many-Body Systems“ written under Prof. Michael Griebel’s supervision deals with the development of a regression procedure for energy hyper surfaces of molecules. The procedure is based on the adaptive sparse grid approach and serves the efficient prediction of material properties. This will promote new developments in material research and simulation.

The bachelor thesis „Optimal Control of the Heat Transfer Equation with point-wise, secondary Conditions“ written by Vera Weber under Prof. Dr. Ira Neitzel’s supervision is about theoretical and numerical problems concerning the optimal control of differential equations. Vera Weber deals with approaches to resolve problem specific difficulties and investigates the influence of various control structures during numerical experiments.

The Ada-Lovelace-Award was established by the institute for numerical simulation (INS) in 2010 and is awarded yearly to promote young, female scientists in numerics. Outstanding bachelor, master as well as doctoral theses from female scientist at the INS are being considered for this award. The prize money ranges from 500 Euro for the best bachelor thesis, over 1000 Euro for the best master thesis to 2000 Euro for the best doctoral thesis.
