The Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) is a leading European research institute located in the heart of Berlin. WIAS conducts project-oriented mathematical research for the solution of complex application-driven problems in technology, science and business. The research of the Institute tightly combines analysis and stochatics, and is done in close cooperation with partners from science and industry. This comprehensive approach represents one of the key strengths of the Institute.
The Institute contributes to solving some of the grand challenges currently faced by our society. These include the optimal and sustainable use of energy, advancing medical technology, identifying of new materials, and fostering technological innovation.
The Institute has a strong focus on applied analysis and applied stochastics, on the mathematically consistent modeling of real-world phenomena as well as on the design and implementation of numerical algorithms and the development of scientific software.
