Prof. Dr. Carsten Trunk is interested in a special structure: While distances are usually positive, he is interested in what happens if you also allow negative distances. In this case, for example, two different points can have a distance of zero from each other. Surprisingly, such spaces appear in many problems, such as modern quantum mechanics or hydrodynamics. Besides his research in the field of applied functional analysis, Prof. Trunk has been giving lectures for engineers for many years.
...are aimed at students of mathematics as well as students of computer science, technical physics and engineering. We attach great importance to high-quality, internationally oriented teaching, including English-language courses and study programmes.
