Grafik / Numerik

Numerics are a subdomain of mathematics and deal with the solution of problems through algorithms. Marcel Mikl is a doctoral student at the Faculty of Applied and Numerical Mathematics at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and conducts research concerning numerical procedures for the simulation of data transfer through fibre optic cables.

Desiree Kabis and I created visual representations of the numerical elements and algorithms Marcel Mikl uses in his work. Step for step, the basic elements and procedures of numerics are explained and combined through simplistic symbols. This abstract process creates a new indenpendent language – formulas become forms.

The project came into existence thanks to Jill Enders and Chris Spatschek, the initiators of Science Vision, who offered the class “Cooking Math” at the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design. We presented our booklet including a first set of symbols and their combinations at the university and the 16th Science Slam in Karlsruhe.
