News 202303/2023: Our 3. CRC 1456 Retreat in Drübeck
Our 3. CRC 1456 retreat (February 28 - March 02, 2023) was held in Kloster Drübeck and has presented the state of the relevant scientific disciplines through the different projects. For the more than fifty participants it was a perfect opportunity to discuss and to intensify already established work within the projects.

News 202212/2022: Award for maths research
Dr Gilles Mordant (member of project A04) awarded annual prize by Royal Academy of Science, Letters and Fine Arts of Belgium.
He has been conducting research for one year in the Göttingen Collaborative Research Center SFB 1456 "Mathematics of Experiment" in the group of Prof. Dr. Axel Munk at the Faculty of Mathematics on statistical data analysis methods using the theory of optimal transport. "Building on my work in Belgium, I am developing new methods in Göttingen that help us understand the spatially complicated arrangement of elementary building blocks of the cell and their interaction. Göttingen offers a unique environment for me to work on the whole spectrum of the problem," Mordant said. For more details go to: "University of Göttingen - New press releases“. The CRC 1456 congratulates him!

09/2022: New Project A06 (Sinz/Gail)
The CRC 1456 welcomes Fabian Sinz and Alexander Gail as new principal investigators. They will start the project A06 "Predictive models and frame of reference in macaque sensorimotor cortex under natural conditions" in January 2023. The aim of this project is to develop graph based models for neural activity of freely behaving monkeys to better understand how the brain represent objects in space under natural conditions. The CRC 1456 congratulates both.
09/2022: Symposium on Inverse Problems: From experimental data to models and back
The Symposium was held in Griebnitzsee (University of Potsdam) on September 19-21, 2022 and was co-organized by the CRC 1294 from the University of Potsdam, our CRC, and the German Society for Inverse Problems. In total, 61 abstracts were submitted for a contribution at this symposium and were reviewed by the scientific committee. The 3-day program with 102 registered participants included plenary talk of 6 invited speakers, 30 oral presentations, and a poster session with 23 poster contributions. Have a look at the conference book.

The "video clip“ explains the rough idea of 3d virtual histology on phase contrast x-ray tomography images via the framework of linearized optimal transport. It was created by Clément Sarrazin and Bernhard Schmitzer, using material from the Salditt group in Göttingen's physics department and the manim animation software. Related publications are (PNAS21) and (UnbalancedLOT).
05/2022: Jun.-Prof. Anne Wald a new principal investigator
The SFB 755 welcomes Anne Wald as a new principal investigator. She starts the project B06 "Compensating motion and model inexactness in nano-CT and local tomography" in May 2022. The aim of this project together with Tim Salditt is an estimation of the model inexactness as well as the identification of motion directly from the data. Analytical, statistical and data-driven methods are combined to obtain efficient and stable reconstruction techniques. The CRC 1456 congratulates both.
