PhD position in the research area "Numerical methods for highly oscillatory differential equations"
position for a PreDoc assistantat the Institute for Analysis and Scientific Computing of TU Wien, in the research area "Analysis, E101-01", is expected to be filled starting from 02.01.2020 for a period of 4 years, for 30 hours per week (salary level: group B1). The minimum monthly wage for this salary group is currently EUR 2.148,40 gross (14 times a year). Activity-related prior experience may increase this basic salary.
Necessary conditionsfor the employment: a completed master's degree, diploma or master's program in mathematics or equivalent university studies in Austria or abroad.
- solid knowledge of (partial) differential equations and numerical analysis
- programming experience (e.g. Matlab).
The successful candidate will work on the project "Numerical methods for highly oscillatory differential equations", in a collaboration between TU Wien, University of Vienna, and University of Bourgogne (Dijon).
Highly oscillatory scattering problems appear in many wave propagation models (from acoustics, electronics, quantum mechanics - e.g. Schrödinger equation in the classical limit). The goal of this project is to develop and analyze efficient numerical methods that do not need to resolve each oscillation. Possible aspects of the PhD research include:
- hybrid (analytical-numerical) scheme for vector systems and 2D waveguides
- coupling of such WKB-based methods to the Landau-Zener formula close to eigenvalue crossings
- error analysis.
An association with the ongoing doctoral school "Dissipation and dispersion in nonlinear partial differential equations" is offered, for details see: npde.tuwien.ac.at. Thus, the PhD candidate can benefit from the collaboration between the three universities through workshops, research stays, and courses. The candidate will be part of a network of researchers on all levels (PhD candidates, post-docs, professors) involved in the doctoral school.
