Spectral methods for evolution equations


The Functional Analysis Group (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Funktionalanalysis - AGFA) at the University of Tübingen invites applications for postgraduate fellowships at the Marie Curie Training Site Tübingen (Spectral Methods for Evolution Equations: TULKA - TUE). AGFA is a very active research group working primarily on semi group methods for evolution equations, with a strong focus on spectral methods and positivity. Computer simulation and visualization are a special feature of the present program. Fellows will be part of this research group and will profit from a close cooperation with the functional analysis groups at the Universities of Ulm and Karlsruhe .The common activities of these groups were established in 1996 under the name of TULKA (see and have since developed into a well-organized research network on evolution equations. The University of Tübingen was founded in 1477 - among those who studied or taught here over the past 500 years are Schelling, Hegel, Hoelderlin, Bloch, Kepler, Melanchthon, Geiger, Alzheimer. Tübingen itself is more than thousand years old. It lies on the riverside of the Neckar, fifty km south of Stuttgart, and has 80,000 inhabitants. A candidate must be a citizen of the EU (or an associated State) other than Germany, and must be registered as a Ph.D. student in an EU country (or in any associated State) other than Germany. Fellowships can only be awarded for a period between 3 months and 1 year. Applications, including a Curriculum Vitae, a list of publications and a letter of reference, should be sent to: Prof. Dr. Rainer Nagel Mathematisches Institut Universität Tübingen D-72070 Tübingen Germany (email:
