How can we prove that two transformations of structured data are equivalent? How can we guarantee that no thread of a concurrent program ever starves? Can we exclude for Easychair, that no coalition of malicious program committee members may pass on illegimate information? How can systems of equations be solved that are potentially infinite or operate on value domains having infinite ascending or descending chains?

Having completed his habilitation at Saarland University, Helmut Seidl has addressed such issues – initially at the University of Trier  and now since 15 years at TUM. Over two funding periods, Helmut Seidl was speaker of the doctorate program PUMA that investigated the interaction of various approaches to analysing models and systems. His further interests include systems for improving teaching. Since October 2013, Helmut Seidl has been dean of studies at the TUM Department of Informatics.
