Barbara Wohlmuth

Barbara I. Wohlmuth is a German mathematician specializing in the numerical solution of partial differential equations. She holds the chair of numerical mathematics at the Technical University of Munich (TUM).[1]


Education and careerEdit

Wohlmuth earned a master's degree in mathematics in 1991 from Joseph Fourier University in France, and a diploma in 1992 from the TUM.[1] She completed a doctorate at TUM in 1995, under the supervision of Ronald Hoppe,[1][2] and earned her habilitation in 2000 at the University of Augsburg.

She worked as a full professor at the University of Stuttgart from 2001 until 2010, when she returned to TUM.[1]


In 2005, the Istituto Lombardo Accademia di Scienze e Lettere in Milan gave her their Giovanni Sacchi-Landriani Prize. She won the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft in 2012.[3] In 2013 she was elected to the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities.[4]

She was the Emmy Noether Lecturer of the German Mathematical Society in 2014,[5] and an invited speaker on numerical analysis and scientific computing at the 2018 International Congress of Mathematicians.[6]
