  • We are members of the EU network of excellence: `` Biosimulation - A New Tool in Drug Development''.
    Formerly, we were members of a European Science Foundation (ESF) Collaborative Research Programme:
    REACTOR: Nonlinear Chemistry in Complex Reactors: Models and Experiments
    The group has been a part of the SNF initiative on Functional Dynamics in Complex Biosystems.
    Formerly, it was connected to CATS, the Center for Chaos and Turbulence Studies at Univ. of Cph. and the Technical University of Denmark.
  • An ESF REACTOR workshop on Methods for Realistic Modelling of Large and Complex Chemical Systems was held May 30 to June 2, 2002.
  • A minisymposium on Microtubule Dynamics and Protein Waves in E. coli was held May 24-25, 2002.
  • A workshop on glycolysis was held February 1-2, 2002.
  • A workshop on glycolysis was held December 8 -9, 2000.
  • A summer school on nonlinear dynamics in biology was held April 25 - May 11, 2000.
  • We have also been involved in the Graduate School in Nonlinear Science, sponsored by the Danish Research Academy.
  • Our group studies nonlinear dynamics and bifurcations in chemical and biochemical systems. Pattern formation, chaos and chemical turbulence are studied both theoretically and experimentally. Quenching analysis is a powerful tool for solving complicated problems because it provides kinetically relevant quantitative data for an entire oscillating reaction at its actual working point. Turbulence and Spiral Motion in the Complex Ginzburg-Landau Equation are studied for particular chemical systems. Pattern formation in morphogenesis is modelled based on Turing's reaction-diffusion theory.
