Within the framework of the scientific cooperation agreement and with the support by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Dr. of Eng. Sc, Prof. Olga Dmytriieva, Head of Applied Mathematics and Informatics Department had a scientific internship at the Simulation Technology Research Center (SRC SimTech), University of Stuttgart (Germany).

The Simulation Technology Research Center, SimTech creates a cluster of about 200 scientists for scientific research aimed at developing new simulation technologies. The cluster’s work focuses on up-to-date research sectors in the natural and engineering sciences. In the area of scientific interests there are both traditional problems of simulation of complex dynamic systems of radioelectronics, energy, chemical technologies, nuclear physics, automation of technological processes, and relatively new problems of environmental protection, meteorology, biotechnologies, technologies of bulk materials, molecular dynamics, biomechanics. Software support for research at SimTech is based on the Internet platform of the virtual simulation software laboratory, ViPLab. Along with the powerful compute core, ViPLab provides 3D visualization of the results.

Professor Olga Dmytriieva took part in a joint scientific project at the invitation of the Director of the Simulation Technology Research Center, SRC SimTech, Professor Wolfgang Elers. Scientific research was conducted in the field of development of high parallel simulation technologies (ParSimTech) and highly-efficient computing on the topic “Parallel numerical methods for systems of differential equations”. The joint research was aimed at the development and software implementation of new computational methods for dynamic systems simulation with concentrated parameters, focused on implementation in parallel computer systems. Test simulation was carried out by using one of the most powerful modern highly efficient clusters (Cluster of Excellence).

During the internship, a scientific and engineering project funding proposal “Problems of transport on multi-connected graphs: parallel computational methods and models reduction”(DFG-SFFRU Cooperation Joint German-Ukrainian Project Proposals in Physics and Mathematics, funding period 2019-2021) was submitted to join call for proposals of the Ukraine National Science Foundation and the German Research Foundation (DFG). The partner organization on the part of Germany was the Institute for Numerical Mathematics, University of Ulm (Germany).  During the internship, an interview with the University of Stuttgart representatives was also organized and the information about DonNTU, the Faculty of Computer Science and Technologies, and the Department of Applied Mathematics and Informatics was presented.

During my stay at the University of Stuttgart, a number of presentations and meetings with leading experts in large systems simulation and cloud computing were organized. The results of the meetings prove the similarity of scientific interests and desire to deepen further cooperation between our universities.
