Workshop on Numerical Aspects of Nonlinear PDEs of Hyperbolic Type

Monday, May 25, 2009 - 10:00pm to Wednesday, May 27, 2009 - 9:59pm

Nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs) of hyperbolic type are of fundamental importance in science and engineering, including fluid dynamics, acoustics, elastodynamics, geophysics, astrophysics, and many other disciplines. Closed form solutions are not available and numerical methods (finite difference, finite volume, finite element, etc.) have to be applied. The field of analysis and justification of numerical methods (stability, compactness and convergence, a priori or a posteriori error estimates, etc.), which often requires the use of sophisticated mathematics, has seen many advances in recent years. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together experts and junior researchers to discuss new trends and activities in numerical analysis, algorithms and applications of hyperbolic and related PDEs.
