The Biomedical Computing department (BioComp) is driven by medical challenges in researching new simulation technology. Our research is strongly multi-disciplinary, with teams of experts in physical modelling, mathematics, numerical methods, scientific software development, bioengineering, medical research, and clinical treatment. The department is a driving force behind the development of The FEniCS Project, a collaborative project for the development of innovative concepts and tools for automated scientific computing, with a particular focus on automated solution of differential equations by finite element methods.
OpenDreamKit is a Horizon 2020 European Research Infrastructure project (#676541) that will run for four years, starting from September 2015. It will provide substantial funding to the open source computational mathematics ecosystem, and in particular popular tools such as LinBox, MPIR, SageMath,GAP, Pari/GP, LMFDB, Singular, MathHub, and the IPython/Jupyter interactive computing environment. See www.opendreamkit.org and www.jupyter.org for more details.
