Organization profile

Introduction / mission

The Centre for Analysis, Scientific computing and Applications (CASA) combines all activities related to analysis at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Its major research objective is to develop new and improve existing mathematical (both analytical and numerical) methods for a wide range of applications in science and engineering. This area of research is commonly known as Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and Computational Science and Engineering (IAM-CSE).

Highlighted phrase

Developing and improving mathematical methods, inspired by a wide range of applications in science and engineering

Organisational profile

CASA has an extensive expertise in the analysis and numerical simulation of problems that can be modelled with differential methods. It includes various aspects, starting with the modelling process and up to and including the analysis of the (numerical) results. Most of the research projects are funded by external grants, research councils or the industry. CASA deems extensive collaboration with researchers in the technical sciences as well as co-operation with industrial partners vital.
