Effective Computational Methods for Highly Oscillatory Solutions

2nd July 2007 to 6th July 2007

Organisers: Professor Tom Hou (Caltech), Professor Arieh Iserles (Cambridge, Chair), Professor Ben Leimkuhler (Edinburgh) and Professor Christian Lubich (Tübingen)

Workshop Theme

Highly oscillatory phenomena occur in a very wide range of phenomena in science and engineering. They are usually considered "difficult" problems and their understanding presents formidable challenges. However, a range of novel techniques, liberally borrowing from pure mathematics, computation and application areas, has recently revolutionised our understanding of high oscillation.

Computation is the main bridge between theory and applications of rapidly oscillating phenomena. The main purpose of the workshop is to introduce wide audience, inclusive of young researchers and workers in the industry to a wide range of contemporary computational tools, techniques and application areas: homogenization, multiresolution, symplectic and geometric methods, computational molecular dynamics, computational geophysical fluid dynamics, highly oscillatory quadrature and computational electromagnetics.
