New Appointment to the University

On 1 August 2020, a new professor was appointed at Chemnitz University of Technology – Prof. Dr. Philipp Reiter is now head of the Harmonic Analysis professorship

On 1 August 2020, Prof. Dr. Philipp Reiter was appointed to the Professorship of Harmonic Analysis at the Faculty of Mathematics at Chemnitz University of Technology. The formal appointment by the President of Chemnitz University of Technology, Prof. Dr. Gerd Strohmeier, will be made at a later date due to the current situation at the university.
In the future, Reiter will be particularly concerned with questions of shape optimization and modeling of self-contact of geometric objects such as curves or surfaces. Applications will be found in the field of mechanics. "I am very happy for the opportunity to work at the Chemnitz University of Technology and am looking forward to the many new challenges. In particular I would like to try out innovative teaching formats."
