Christian Marschler has received a travelling bursary from the foundation, Otto Mønsteds Fond.
The travelling bursary will be used for a research stay at Princeton University during the summer of 2012.
Stay at Princeton University
For Christian Marschler a research stay at Princeton University is an outstanding opportunity to collaborate with the leading expert in equation-free computations, Professor Yannis G. Kevrekidis. During the stay Christian will focus on the application of equation-free methods to complex networks, such as neural, social or traffic networks.
Insight into these systems will help the researchers understand the function of the brain, interaction between people, especially the spreading of diseases, and the formation of traffic jams.
Analysis of pattern formation in complex networks
Christian Marschler’s PhD project concerns the analysis of pattern formation in complex networks. Equation-free methods are naturally well-suited to describe the dynamics of multi-scale systems.
As pattern formation is understood to be a phenomenon of many time scales, equation-free computations can be utilized to gain insight into the dynamics.
The main supervisor is Associate Professor Jens Starke.
