Many of our research activities involve third party funded projects, e.g, by the DFG, the European Union or the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing e.V., and international and interdisciplinary cooperations. The details can be found in the acknowledgements of the specific publications. The support of the funding institutions is greatly appreciated. Cross-disciplinary work is only possible by the interaction of different departments. A great thanks to all of our partners, for all the enriching discussions and team-work. For more information see the authors in our joint publications.
