  • Derivation of the modelling equations for fluid- and electrodynamics.
  • Introduction into numerical methods related to multiscale modells (multiscalen-methods and special discretization-methods, e.g., FDTD-methods).
  • Consolidation into special multiscale solvers, e.g., HMM (Heterogeneous Multiscale Method), EFM (Equation-Free Method), MISM (Multiscale Iterative Splitting Method).
  • Examples in the field of transport-reactions- and Maxwell-equations (e.g., particle-transport in the electromagnetic field).
  • Programming exercises in MATLAB.


  • Modelling of electromagnetic- and transport-problems (transport-reaction- and Maxwell-equations).
  • Preparing the theoretical principles for solving the underlying partial differential equations with different spatial- and time-scales (multiscale theory).
  • Communicating the numerical solver methods for efficient and robust simulation algorithms.
  • Communicating of so called multiscale solvers, e.g.,HMM (Heterogeneous Multiscale Methods, which allow to calculate and transfer between microscopic (fine) and macroscopic (coarse) models (or grids).
  • Introducing into commercial software-packages(MATLAB) for solving the underlying differential equations.
