Professor Dr. Achim Ilchmann served as the Head of the "Analysis and Systems Theory" group from 2000 to 2022. His research expertise encompasses adaptive control of nonlinear systems and linear differential-algebraic equations. Additionally, he delivers regular lectures on philosophical issues within mathematics. From 2003 to 2020, he organized the annual Elgersburg workshop on 'Mathematical Systems Theory' for mathematicians and engineers.
