Florian Beyer is interested in mathematical questions in GR and cosmology, such as strong cosmic censorship, the BKL and the cosmic no-hair conjectures. He is developing and using the theory of Fuchsian PDE.

Jörg Hennig studies cosmological models and their causality structure using exact solution methods. He is also well known for his work on fully spectral methods for the numerical solution of hyperbolic PDE.

Apart from the work on the global structure of space-times, Jörg Frauendiener is interested in the Riemann surfaces, which appear in the context of integrable systems of PDEs. He is also working on issues of quasi-local mass in GR. A recent interest is the computational determination of capillary surfaces and their applications.

Robert Thompson works on transformation optics, electrodynamics on curved manifolds, the covariant formulation of electrodynamics in ponderable media and analogue space-times.
