Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship
20 February 2020
Acknowledgement of the research excellence going on at the Cardiff School of Mathematics has once again been recognised with a member of staff being awarded a prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship.
Research Associate Dr Frank Rösler has been awarded for the Fellowship entitled COCONUT - Computational Complexity in Quantum Mechanics for a duration of two years, commencing in the autumn.
The goal of this project is to improve our understanding of how to perform computations in quantum mechanics and classify their complexity. This will be achieved by using modern methods from spectral approximation theory in conjunction with the recently introduced Solvability Complexity Index.
Dr Rösler said: “I’m obviously tremendously happy and relieved about this success. My special thanks goes to Dr Jonathan Ben-Artzi and Prof Marco Marletta for their support and guidance during the application procedure.”
Dr Rösler gained both his BSc Physics and MSc Physics at Heidelberg University, Germany, before completing his PhD in Mathematics at Durham University. He joined the School of Mathematics at Cardiff University as a Research Associate in 2018 with his research interests including the spectral theory of non-selfadjoint operators. And the approximation of spectra.
