Antti Hannukainen appointed Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis
Hannukainen's research concentrates on numerical solution of partial differential equations using the element method.
D. Sc. (Tech) Antti Hannukainen has been named to the post of Assistant Professor of Mathematics as of 1 September 2014.
Hannukainen has concentrated in his research on the numerical solution of partial differential equations using the element method.
"I am especially interested in problems related to electromagnetics and the efficient solution of the large linear systems related to the element method. In my work I have focused on preconditioned iterative solution methods and the analysis of their convergence properties. In addition, the topics of my research include, among other things, the modelling of laminated structures by using homogenisation", Hannukainen says.
He sees as his most important research results the convergence analysis of the GMRES method for the linear system that emerges from the element solution of the Helmholtz equation, a preconditioner for the linear system connected with the mixed element method, and participation in the development of very high-order solution methods for the Helmholtz equation.
Antti Hannukainen graduated as a Master of Science (Technology) from the Department of Electrical Engineering of the Helsinki University of Technology (now Aalto University) and as a D. Sc. (Tech) from Aalto University’s Department of Mathematics in 2011. He has worked as a researcher at RWTH Aachen in Germany, as a visiting researcher at the Vienna University of Technology in Austria, and as Academy of Finland’s postdoctoral researcher at Aalto University’s Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis.
