The Electromagnetism and Mathematical Modelling (M4EM) group is part of the institute TEMF and the Centre for Computational Engineering. Research and teaching focus primarily on the modelling of electromagnetic fields by modern mathematical methods, in particular from differential geometry and algebraic topology.

Electrical engineering and the academic education of engineers are built on a solid mathematical foundation. However, the foundation was laid before the 20th century. Now there is a chance to enrich common engineering practices with the best currently available mathematical knowledge.

Today, theoretical physics uses advanced mathematical methods that have proven their usefulness. The approach can also be seen in engineering. It is now possible to model and simulate previously difficult problems and thus make more accurate predictions about the properties of electrical devices.
