Multiscale Problems:
Algorithms, Numerical Analysis and Computation

Hausdorff Trimester Program

January 3 - April 21, 2017

Organizers: Susanne C. Brenner, Björn Engquist, Max Gunzburger, Daniel Peterseim, Marc Alexander Schweitzer

Many physical processes in material sciences or geophysics are characterised by inherently complex interactions across a large range of non-separable scales in space and time. The resolution of all features on all scales in a computer simulation easily exceeds today's computing resources by multiple orders of magnitude. The observation and prediction of physical phenomena from multiscale models, hence, requires insightful numerical techniques to adaptively select relevant scales and effectively represent unresolved scales. The program shall enhance the development of corresponding algorithms and the mathematics behind them so that the reliable and efficient numerical simulation of challenging multiscale problems eventually becomes feasible in modern high performance computing environments.

We will host long-term visitors and plan the following focused activities:
