Nearly 10 million euros ($13.6 million) in ERC grants for 6 Technische Universitaet Muenchen researchers
Date:1/24/2011

flavor physics, the fundamental properties of elementary particles, quarks and leptons, are investigated. In total, there are six quarks and six leptons with different characteristics in terms of electrical charge and flavors, for example, the up and down quarks. An accurate understanding of the flavor structure of quarks and leptons, their masses, and interactions is still pending. The aim of Professor Buras and his team is to decipher these unknown structures in order to ultimately better understand the development of the early universe.

Flavor physics is one of seven key research areas of the Universe Cluster. In this project, future results of flavor experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva and the Belle II experiment in Japan (KEK) will also play a role. Both of these institutions are cooperative partners of the Universe Cluster.

Prof. Andrzej Buras is Professor of Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics at TUM and Head of the Research Division for the Excellence Cluster "Origin and Structure of the Universe" at TUM. Since 2007, Buras is also a Carl-von-Linde Senior Fellow at TUM's Institute for Advanced Study (TUM-IAS). He is considered one of the world's leading scientists in applied quantum field theory. Prof. Buras receives an ERC Advanced Investigators Grant.

Optimization Methods for Image Processing

Digital cameras and their images accompany our daily lives in many different ways. Computer-based information extraction from images, however, is one of the biggest challenges in computer science. From the reconstruction of three-dimensional objects by analyzing two-dimensional images -- via face and facial expression recognition, for example -- to the analysis of complete scenes, there are a variety of tasks for which quick calculation methods are required.

Prof. Daniel Cremers is Chair of Intelligent Autonomous Systems for the Faculty of Computer Science at TUM. In the project "Convex O
