The MOSAIC Group moved from ETH Zurich to the Max Planck Institute in Dresden (Germany) in summer 2012. This web site is no longer maintained and will be discontinued soon. Please visit our new site for all software downloads, publications, and information about our research and teaching.
The MOSAIC Group does research in the methodology and applications of Computational Science.
A mosaic is "a combination of diverse elements forming a coherent whole", a mosaic is colorful and more than the sum of its parts. A mosaic lives from the synergies between the individually colored tiles. This name represents both what we are and what we do: the MOSAIC group combines researchers from several cultural and academic backgrounds in a truly interdisciplinary team that develops, teaches, and applies MOdels, Simulations, and Algorithms for Interdisciplinary Computing.

We aim at addressing significant scientific or engineering challenges using novel computational methods and algorithms, without which the problem could not be solved. Currently, we focus on:
The MOSAIC Group is an example of interdisciplinary creativity, combining expertise from Computer Science, mathematics, engineering, physics, and biology. This enables broader coverage of the literature and allows innovative solutions that involve expertise from more than one discipline. Our group has a triple affiliation with the ETH Departments of Computer Science (our home Department), Biology, and Mechanical and Process Engineering. In addition, we are members of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB), of the Zurich Center for Imaging Science and Technology (CIMST), of the Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences (MedILS), and we participate in the curriculum in Computational Science and Engineering (RW/CSE) hosted by the ETH Departments of Mathematics and Physics.
