Multiscale Problems: Algorithms, Numerical Analysis and Computation

Date: August 19 - August 23, 2024
Venue: HIM, Poppelsdorfer Allee 45, Bonn
Organizers: Susanne C. Brenner (Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge), Björn Engquist (University of Texas, Austin), Max Gunzburger (Florida State University, Tallahassee), Daniel Peterseim (Universität Augsburg), Marc Alexander Schweitzer (Universität Bonn)

This meeting is a follow-up workshop to the trimester program "Multiscale Problems: Algorithms, Numerical Analysis and Computation".




Many physical processes in materials science or geophysics are characterised by inherently complex interactions on a multitude of inseparable scales in space and time. The resolution of all features on all scales in a computer simulation easily exceeds today's computing resources. Observation and prediction of physical phenomena therefore requires insightful computational multi-scale models and methods for adaptive selection of relevant scales and effective representation of unresolved scales. This workshop will discuss the latest algorithms and models for this purpose, as well as the mathematics behind them, which enable reliable and efficient numerical simulation of challenging multiscale problems in modern high-performance computing environments.
