Analysis of Markovian Models

Vision and Research Strategy

Markov models are omnipresent in the applied sciences. Although their analysis has a long research history, the development of new methods is more important than ever. Modern technologies provide novel data, and therefore real-world phenomena are captured more accurately based on enhanced models.

In the ALMA group, we focus on Markov modeling and develop algorithms for the analysis and simulation of Markov processes. In some projects, we consider particular applications and work closely together with experimentalists. Other projects are aimed at algorithms for general classes of models, or solutions for problems that appear in different application areas.

Composition of Group

The Analysis of Markovian Models (ALMA) Group is part of the Cluster of Excellence since March 2009. The group concentrates mainly on stochastic modeling and analysis techniques and has a particular focus on applications in the area of quantitative biology. The group consists of four PhD students, Alexander Lück, Thilo Krüger, Charalampos Kyriakopoulos and Michael Backenköhler, as well as the group leader, Prof. Verena Wolf.
