    Didactics of Mathematics
    The didactics of mathematics addresses teaching and learning of mathematics. In the course of this, the understanding of mathematics is not a simple accumulation of knowledge but an activity and an attitude.
    In Würzburg, the didactics of mathematics especially focuses on the following research areas:
    • The teaching and learning of mathematical conceptualization
    • The significance of innovative technologies for the teaching and learning of mathematics, especially with regard to the use of digital tools (e.g. hand-held-calculators in mathematics classrooms or creating online-textbooks)
    • The development of web-based material for pre-service-teacher-training
    • The development of a mathematics laboratory
    • The progress of mathematics classes in primary schools
    • Mathematical modelling in class
    • Assessment in mathematics class 
  • STEUDING, Prof. Dr. Jörn
    Number Theory
    The Number Theory working group investigates various topics in analytic, elementary, and algebraic number theory; the recent focus is on:
    • value distribution of the Riemann zeta-function and other L-functions (incl. distribution of zeros, order of growth, universality),
    • complex continued fractions (by means from ergodic theory),
    • Algebraic Graph Theory (Ramanujan graphs, Ihara's zeta-function),
    • History of Number Theory. 
  • WACHSMUTH, Prof. Dr. Daniel
    Optimal control of partial differential equations
    • Focus on non-smooth and non-convex problems
    • Regularization techniques and numerical analysis
    • Algorithms to compute approximate solutions

    Mathematical Physics
    At the chair "Mathematical Physics" we work mainly within pure mathematics concerning questions from classical geometric mechanics and quantum theory. In particuar, we are interested in the transition from classical physics to quantum physics. Not very precisely, this is usually called quantization, even though there is neither a generally accepted way nor conditions on such a proceedure. This lack of a clear physical requirement makes it an ideal field for mathematical physics, as here one can analyse the relevant structures and physical ideals by mathematical means to obtain precise suggestions in form of general existence and classification results on quantization. Questions on physical interpretations of the results complete our work.

    In detail, we work on the following topics:
    • Differential geometric formulations of mechanics within symplectic and Poisson geometry including the study of Poisson algebras.
    • Algebraic formulations of symmetries and phase space reduction.
    • Deformation quantization and star products, Quantization of phase space reduction.
    • Morita equivalence of *-algebras, in particular those from deformation quantization.
    • Representation theory of obsevable algebras in deformation quantization.
    • Convergence of formal star products and analysis of the classical limit.
    • Star products in infinite dimensions.
    • Applications of deformation quantization in noncommutative geometry.
