A main interest in our group is the study of mathematical models of molecules and solids, based on a strong background in mathematics and a broad interdisciplinary perspective. We are interested in the full spectrum of scales, from electronic to atomistic to continuum.



  • A new Gamm activity group Pfeil Modelling, Analysis and Simulation of Molecular Systems was founded by Gero Friesecke, Benjamin Stamm, and Reinhold Schneider.

  • Former postdoc Huajie Chen wins professorship in Beijing: As of October 1, 2016, Huajie was appointed professor at Beijing Normal University, within the prestigious 'Thousand Talents Program'. This new program by the Chinese Government attracts leading junior Chinese researchers working abroad back to China, via specially endowed professorships in all subjects.
  • DFG project 'Curvature Effects in molecular and spin systems' receives funding for a 2nd 5-year period (2016-2020) within SFB-TR 109 Discretization in geometry and dynamics. The project is directed jointly by Marco Cicalese and Gero Friesecke. Together with Lucia De Luca and Rufat Badal we will explore defects and singularities in these systems both at the discrete level and in the continuum limit.
  • New postdoc Vincent Beaud has joined us as of January 12, 2016. Vincent is jointly funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation and TUM. He received his Ph.D. from ETH Zurich. He is interested in non-relativistic Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) and many-body quantum physics, especially scattering theory, existence of scattering states in QED models, and many-body localization.
