Applied mathematics, computational physics and mathematical modeling.
Design and analysis of numerical methods for partial differential equations, especially hyperbolic balance laws.
Achim Schroll has been teaching university courses on all levels at seven European universities and in four languages. He initiated a curriculum in scientific computing and created two post graduate courses on finite volume- and adaptive, finite element methods. In fall 2012 the new program in Computational, Applied Mathematics at SDU is launched.
Achim Schroll studied mathematics at Konstanz University in Germany. He holds a Ph.D. from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, ETH-Zurich and was a post doctoral fellow at the University of Oslo. RWTH Aachen approved his “Habilitation” and awarded “venia legendi”. Achim Schroll held associate professorships at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU Trondheim and Lund University until he was promoted to full professor. During spring 2007 he was guest professor at ETH-Zurich. For many years Achim Schroll was adjunct research scientist at Simula Research Laboratory in Norway. As effective from fall 2009 he accepted an offer as professor of applied mathematics at the University of Southern Denmark.
Achim Schroll successfully applied for the collaborative research center SFB401 at RWTH Aachen and was member of two EU networks on hyperbolic systems (HYP) and hyperbolic and kinetic equations (HYKE).
Achim Schroll was student participant at the 29th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, 1979.
