Recent Developments in Adaptive Methods for PDEs, Collaborative Workshop and Short Course
Month: August 2014
Date: August 17--22
Name: Recent Developments in Adaptive Methods for PDEs, Collaborative Workshop and Short Course
Location: Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada.
The aim of this workshop is to provide an introduction to the state of the art in theory and practical applications of adaptivity in PDEs. The program will begin with a two-day short course, "Adaptive Methods for the Numerical Solution of PDEs", given by Dr. Weizhang Huang (University of Kansas). The middle component of the program will focus on presentations by researchers whose work may benefit from the use of adaptive techniques for PDEs arising as mathematical models in practical applications. The final segment of the program will feature a workshop format in which breakout teams, consisting of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows led by experts on theoretical or computational aspects of adaptive methods for PDEs, will investigate the process of introducing adaptive techniques into the numerical simulations that arise in the applications identified earlier. The segment will also include several talks by researchers working in adaptivity for PDEs.
