Asimptote was founded in 2011. It grew out of a long-standing cooperation between researchers in thermal energy engineering from across Europe. In order to form the company, the researchers joined hands with the company VORtech. VORtech is a company of scientific software engineers; it provides the software engineering services that are needed for Asimptote’s software.
Asimptote wishes to remain a technology leader. Therefore, we focus on projects and software that go beyond the state of the art. When technology that is advanced today will become commonplace in the future, Asimptote will move on and leave this technology to the large system integrators. Instead, we will be offering the expertise on technology that is considered new by then.
About the Name
We know that the name of the curve in analytic geometry is spelled “asymptote”: we exploited that similarity, but ASIMPTOTE is an acronym for Advanced SIMulation for Power and TOTal Energy systems. The similarity with asymptote suggests the strive to reach our ideal for software and services.
