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).
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. She completed a doctorate at TUM in 1995, under the supervision of Ronald Hoppe, and earned her habilitation in 2000 at the University of Augsburg.
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. In 2013 she was elected to the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
She was the Emmy Noether Lecturer of the German Mathematical Society in 2014, and an invited speaker on numerical analysis and scientific computing at the 2018 International Congress of Mathematicians.
