CRC 1114: Scaling Cascades in Complex Systems

Complex processes with scaling cascades define a large number of natural scientific systems. Their simulation remains a major challenge due to the very large number of degrees of freedom and cross-scale interactions. The CRC "Scaling Cascades in Complex Systems" seeks to develop adequate modelling techniques, by means of which the target variables of the respective simulation can be calculated efficiently. To achieve this, it brings mathematics researchers together with colleagues in biochemistry, physics and earth sciences, who are jointly working on consolidating methodological developments for the modelling and simulation of complex processes with scaling cascades and thus advancing answers to prototypical natural scientific issues.
