Welcome to the website of the Mathematics for materials modelling research group. Our research centres on bringing insight from maths to materials modelling, with the aim to understand simulation error and improve robustness of existing schemes. This is an interdisciplinary mission and we frequently collaborate with researchers across the disciplines of mathematics, physics, computer science, materials. At EPFL we are part of both the Institute of Mathematics and the Institute of Materials.
You can learn more about our work by taking a look at our research topics, the software we develop or our recent publications. If you are interested and you want to work with us, feel free to take a look at our our job openings. We also offer student projects at various levels.

24.05.2023 Our group hosts a seminar Julia for Materials Modelling. In the form of interactive Pluto notebooks Michael discusses the suitability of Julia for atomistic materials modelling and provides an overview of the current state of Julia tools in this field.
