Lutz Angermann is Professor of Numerical Mathematics in the Mathematical Institute of the University of Technology at Clausthal (Germany) since 2001. His research is concerned with the mathematical analysis of numerical algorithms for partial differential equations with special interests in finite volume and finite element methods. After the study of Mathematics at the University of Kharkiv (Ukraine) he earned a Ph.D. from the University of Technology at Dresden in 1987. The University of Erlangen-Nürnberg awarded him a higher doctoral degree (habilitation) in 1995. From 1998 to 2001, he held the post of an Associate Professor of Numerical Mathematics at the University of Magdeburg. He is the author of about 100 scientific papers, among them two co-authored books on numerical methods for partial differential equations.
