  • Dr. Ralf Hartmann.
    Dr. Ralf Hartmann is a researcher in the Numerical Methods Group of the Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology, German Aerospace Center (DLR), Braunschweig. Dr. Hartmann's research is focused in the area of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Recently, Dr. Hartmann has been awarded by the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres. This prestigious award enables him to build up a junior research group (Helmholtz-Hochschul-Nachwuchsgruppe) at the DLR Braunschweig, in close cooperation with Institute of Scientific Computing of the TU Braunschweig. Dr. Hartmann is one of the developers of the popular Differential Equations Analysis Library deal.II . Dr. Hartmann visited the Applied Mathematics Group between January-July 2005.
    Contact address: Dr. Ralf Hartmann, German Aerospace Center (DLR), in the Helmholtz Association, Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology (AS), Lilienthalplatz 7, 38108, Braunschweig, Germany.
