Mission Statement

The Computational Science Center (CSC) is a research platform belonging to the faculties of Mathematics and Computer Science.

The core research topics of the CSC are Inverse Problems and Image Analysis. The common thread among these areas is a canonical problem of recovery of an object (function or image) from partial or indirect information. Particular research topics are:


Master's Thesis of Denise Schmutz
We congratulate Denise Schmutz for successfully defending her master's thesis "Reconstruction of Projection Orientations in Cryo-Electron Microscopy" supervised by Otmar Scherzer!
Dissertation of Cong Shi
Congratulations to Cong Shi, who successfully defended her dissertation "High-Resolution Imaging for Photoacoustic Tomography and Optical Coherence Tomography"!
CSC on ECMI blog
Our group is part of the European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry (ECMI). This week, you can find our students project here.
Habilitation of Peter Elbau
We congratulate Peter Elbau on successfully defending is habilitation thesis – "A Struggle for Quantitative Imaging. From Photoacoustic and Optical Coherence Tomography to Regularisation Theory" – on June 26th!
Mathematics for "inner values"
Otmar Scherzer gave an Interview about the Radon Transformation published by the ÖAW.
Dissertation of Guozhi Dong
Congratulations to Guozhi Dong, who successfully defended his dissertation "Regularization and Imaging Methods for Solving Inverse Problems with Solutions on Surfaces" on Mar 24th!
Radon Transformation and Origami Birds
The "Standard" published a video interview "Radon-Transformation: Was ein Origami-Vogel mit Mathematik zu tun hat" of Otmar Scherzer explaining the working principle of tomography on a vivid experiment which produces from the recorded shadows of a rotating, transparent origami figure in front of an overhead projector a three-dimensional computer model.
Mini Special Semester "100 Years of the Radon Transform"
The Mini Special Semester "100 Years of the Radon Transform" takes place in Linz, March 27 - July 14, 2017 and consists of the two events:
  • Conference "100 Years of the Radon Transform" - March 27 - 31, 2017
  • Summer School & Workshop "Quantitative Tomographic Imaging – Radon meets Bell and Maxwell" — July 10—14, 2017
