Introduction to simulations (in Polish) (Malopolska Noc Naukowcow 2020)

Every year, since 2003, I visit Oden Institute (rank #1 in the world), The University of Texas at Austin, USA mostly under JTOden Research Faculty Fellowship program

I am a full professor at Department of Computer Science, AGH University, Krakow, Poland. I obtained my PhD in Mathematics with Applications to Computer Science from Jagiellonian University, and my Habilitation in Computer Science from AGH University of Science and Technology. With my research group "Adaptive Algorithms and Systems (A2S)" we perform research oriented towards the applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance computing (HPC) in advanced simulations.

I am a precursor in Poland of modern computer simulation methods called isogeometric analysis . I started researching these methods in 2011 while working in an international team to determine the cost of making such simulations. It turned out then that the computer simulation methods used require very long computation times on large computers from supercomputing centers to obtain accurate simulations. Additionally, they require problem specific stabilization methods to obtain reliable simulation results. In the field of isogeometric analysis, I discovered a new, automatically stable, low-cost way to perform challenging computer simulations on a regular laptop, without the use of costly and sometimes hard-to-reach supercomputing centers. When selecting research topics for my projects, I took into account the benefits for society in line with ethical values.
