Ladyshenskaya Lecture - Dr. Anna Trykozko

13 June 2018
3:45 - 5:45 pm

HGS MathComp cordially invites you to join the Ladyshenskaya Lecture. It is a formate promoting outstanding, pioneering female mathematicians. It's an excellent opportunity to develop perspectives for one's own career. Together with the lecture we invite you meet and greet Dr. Anna Trykozko (University of Warsaw) at the informal get together over coffee and cake.


3:45 Meet & Greet - Common Room (5/303)
4:15 Ladyzhenskaya Lecture - Pore scale modeling of flows in weakly permeable porous media - a hybrid computational approach


Studying effective properties of porous media based on simulating flows at pore scale has become a widely applied procedure during last years. Realistic structures of pores are commonly obtained by X-ray computed micro-tomography (micro-CT). In this work we consider weakly permeable samples in which a significant fraction of porosity could not be detected at a micro-CT resolution. We therefore apply an approach in which parts of samples characterized as _solids_ during micro-CT imaging are treated as permeable porous media represented with an assumed (small) permeability. Reliable estimations of permeability of ‘solid’ parts were obtained by incorporating Scanning Electron Microscopy data. This way our computational hybrid approach combines two microimaging methods of different resolutions.

Mentoring Workshop - Constitution, Methods and Training

16 to 17 April 2018, 9am – 6pm

UPSTREAM, the Network for Women in Maths, Heidelberg, and the Research Training Group 2229, Heidelberg/Karlsruhe, host the constitutive mentoring workshop for postdocs and young professors in mathematics. Together with our trainer Dr. Edelkraut, we will elaborate a suitable mentoring programme for Heidelberg and Karlsruhe, introduce and practice management tools, as well as operation and evaluation methods. These methods can be transferred to various situations of mentoring or academic supervision in general.
We invite you to meet postdocs and professors from other groups, exchange ideas and experiences in a relaxed, inspiring and productive atmosphere and learn from our mentoring expert Dr. Edelkraut.

Dr. Edelkraut published his monography “Mentoring” at the renowned Springer publishing company and has supported companies like Bosch and Siemens but also LMU in establishing a well-functioning mentoring programme.
