See below some selected comments of members of the advisory board about the SFB:
“The group has been very active… The group has also done very well in terms of student training, as evidenced by several papers co-authored by students (and in some cases, with students as sole authors).” (C. Lemieux, 4.2015)
“I am amazed at the amount of high quality activity you (G. Larcher) report. It seems to me that the SFB is progressing very well. Congratulations.” (I. Sloan, 3.2016)
"I am impressed by activities and progress in the SFB. I wish you to continue an excellent pace of work on this fascinating research program." (H. Wozniakowski, 3.2016)
"I have checked your very well-done website and read the presentation concerning the three first years of the SFB "Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods: Theory and Applications". I am impressed by the quality of the work done! This can be seen in particular in the impressive list of the publications of your team in many international journals (more than 100 submitted or accepted publications only for the year 2016!). Congratulations to you (Gerhard Larcher) and your team and my wish is that you all continue to be as successful in your future research." (C. Mauduit, 2016)
"The publication record of the SFB "Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods: Theory and Applications" in its first three years is truly outstanding. A very large number of excellent papers was written. Many of them appeared in highly ranked journals. I am particularly impressed by the many young researchers who have contributed signicantly to the SFB. This shows that a great stress has been put on the training aspect of the program" (H. Niederrreiter, 2016)
It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Professor Christian Mauduit, member of the Advisory Board of this project. He accompanied this SFB from the very beginning with his renown expertise.
We would like to extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
