Numerical methods for PDEs and their applications

29 May - 02 June 2017

This workshop is concerned with the numerical approximation of PDEs, with the additional feature that all participants will be female. The topic is broader than for a typical workshop at Institut Mittag-Leffler such that enough highly qualified female participants can participate.  It is however still chosen narrow enough to ensure a vital scientific discussion.  

There will be a broad range of numerical methods discussed, including but not limited to finite element, finite difference, discontinuous Galerkin and integral equation methods. A range of application fields will be covered, such as fluid mechanics, electromagnetics and biology. The participants have been selected such that all should be able to learn from each other’s presentations and actively engage in following discussions.
