Henning Mortveit is an associate professor in the Department of Systems and Information Engineering and the Network Systems Science and Advanced Computing division in the Biocomplexity Institute Initiative. He received his doctorate in mathematics from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in 2000. Before joining ESE he held positions at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and at Virginia Tech.

Research Interests

  • Massively interacting systems and the mathematics supporting rigorous analysis and understanding of their stability and resiliency
  • The generic structure and the mathematics of large-scale simulation models of massively interacting systems
  • Discrete and continuous dynamical systems, in particular graph dynamical systems (GDS) and their combinatorial and algebraic structures
  • Design, modeling, framework development, and mathematical analysis of simulation models based on graph dynamical systems
  • Structure-to-function theory of graph dynamical systems relating properties of networks, functions and update mechanism to global dynamics
