Computational complex analysis


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

Workshop theme:

The aim of the workshop on computational complex analysis is to bring together numerical and applied mathematicians to focus on: (a) new and existing methods, (b) software tools, and (c) various application areas.   

Methods will focus on the traditional tools of the field (conformal mapping, series expansions, integral transforms, rational approximation, quadrature) as well as recent developments (Riemann-Hilbert problems).  The exploitation of analyticity in numerical computations is a key theme, as is the possibility of enlarging domains of analyticity by theoretical techniques such as asymptotics.       

Part of the workshop will be devoted to the software tools of the numerical complex analyst.   This includes the traditional numerical environments such as MATLAB, NumPy and Julia as well as their symbolic counterparts Mathematica and Maple.
More specialized tools such as Chebfun, Approxfun, and Wegert's phase plotting software will be central to the discussion.

It is expected that the programme that leads up to workshop will provide an exciting number of application areas that will pose challenges to computation. These could be the computation of  singularity structure of the nonlinear differential equations of fluid dynamics,  efficient implementation of the Fokas transform, Painlevé equations, and others.  


Deadline for applications: 8th September 2019

CAT programme participants DO NOT need to apply, programme participants with visit dates during CATW03 will automatically be added to the attendee list.

Please note members of Cambridge University are welcome to turn up and sign in as a non-registered attendee on the day(s) during the workshop and attend the lecture(s). Please note that we cannot provide you with any support including name badge, meals or accommodation.

In addition to visiting the INI, there are multiple ways in which you can participate remotely.
