My main scientific interest is currently the two body problem for two black holes. The classical two body problem in physics is formulated for two point-like masses. In Newtonian physics this problem has the well-known solution in terms of Kepler orbits, but do we really understand how two masses move in their mutual gravitational field? As surprising as it may seem at first, the answer to this question is not really known, even if we restrict ourselves to classical, non-quantum physics and to no more than two bodies.

Prof. Dr. Clemens Beckstein

The work of our group is revolving around the general question how computers can be used to support modeling and simulation in the scientific process. From a computer science and philosophy of science point of view not only results from experiments and imulations but also the scientific models themselves that connect these results as well as the computational tools that are used to analyse and communicate these models in the scientific cycle are data. In order for computers to help make sense of these data the corresponding algorithms must handle it in a way that is compatible with the knowledge that is represented by those models. With a focus on dynamic models in systems biology we therefore ask: what are adequate computer "understandable" formal representations 1) of this knowledge, 2) of the role of the models in simulations and 3) of the results produced by these simulations, i.e. of the structure, function and behaviour of these models?

Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) allows to obtain ‘omic’ profiles and identification of markers directly from thin frozen or formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections. MALDI imaging is a label-free technique and can visualize the distribution of hundreds of molecular compounds (proteins, peptides, lipids) in a single, pixel wise measurement. MALDI imaging is used for the pathological analysis of various tissue types, especially in oncology. A MALDI imaging data set includes several thousand individual mass spectra, with several thousand intensity values each. The superimposition of individual MALDI images with microscopic images or spectroscopic images can provide valuable and synergistic information.

The Condensed Matter Theory Group works on the theoretical development and numerical implementation of many-body approaches for the description of electronic excitations. The tools used are based on density functional theory and many-body perturbation theory. Examples of applications are the simulation of spectroscopic properties of "real" materials of technological interest, that can range from simple bulk crystals to non-stoichiometric, doped, alloyed compounds, or to nanostructured materials and interfaces. At the same time, a "materials by design" approach based on global structural prediction and high-throughput calculations is followed to propose novel materials, that are then further characterized with the same techniques used for known materials. Present research activities are particularly focused on materials for energy production, storage and saving.
