Workshop on Adaptivity, robustness and complexity of multiscale algorithms

Saturday, March 28, 2009 - 8:00pm to Thursday, April 2, 2009 - 7:59pm

Multiscale or multi-physics modeling play a major role in the modelling of many important problems arising in the geosciences, atmospheric sciences, physical sciences, chemistry, biology and medicine. The past few years has seen new mathematical and computational frameworks emerging to address the challenge of multiscale computation. However, many major problems need still to be addressed and we will focus in this workshop on the issues of adaptivity, robustness and complexity in multiscale modeling and computation.

The purpose of the meeting is to bring together experts (both international leaders and promising young researchers) from several mathematical communities (a posteriori analysis, computational methods for stochastic and multiscale problems, homogenization) and provide an unique opportunity for exchange of ideas, presentation and dissemination of new results likely to contribute to a better understanding of the aforementioned challenging issues.
