Computational Mathematics

Computational Mathematics involves mathematical research in areas of science where computing plays a central and essential role, emphasizing algorithms, numerical methods, symbolic methods and scientific computing.


The head of our research group, prof. dr. Annie Cuyt, is a member of the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts (KVAB). The main task of the Academy of Flanders is giving perspective to the societal debate on scientific and artistic topics in a neutral and interdisciplinary way.

Our research group is a member of the Research Community Scientific Computing, which unites Dutch and Flemish researchers in and users of numerical mathematics and scientific computing. The most important WSC goal is transfer of knowledge.

Our group also manages the HPC core facility CalcUA, which provides faculty, staff and students at the University of Antwerp with a high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure for research purposes.
