Computational Challenges in Micromagnetics and Superconductivity
13th-14th February 2003

Computational Challenges in Partial Differential Equations

Theme of Meeting:

The meeting addresses two significant themes: MICROMAGNETICS and SUPERCONDUCTIVITY. The aim is to identify the major applications in each area where progress in computational techniques for partial differential equations is needed and will have a significant impact. Leading experts, including physicists, engineers, numerical analysts and theoretical PDE analysts will deliver survey lectures on their area of expertise. The speakers have been selected with the aim to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state of the field, with particular emphasis on the interactions between theory, applications and practice.

Invited Speakers:

John Chapman (Glasgow University)

Thomas Schrefl (Vienna)

Gilles Carbou (Bordeaux)

Andreas Prohl (Zürich)

Peter Monk (Delaware)

S. Jonathan Chapman (Oxford)

Malcolm McCulloch (Oxford)

Leonid Prigozhin (Ben Gurion University)

Vanessa Styles (Sussex)

Max Gunzburger (Iowa State)

Qiang Du (HKUST)

Structure of the meeting:
The meeting will comprise of two one-day programmes corresponding to the themes of micromagnetics and superconductivity. Each day will consist of a survey talk by a scientist involved in the modelling of the phenomena, a survey talk by an engineer involved in practical applications and an overview of known theoretical properties of the solutions of relevant models. These will be followed by more specialised talks on the development and analysis of state-of-the-art algorithms for their numerical approximation.

Further information:
Lunch will be available for a nominal charge; please let Tracey Andrew at the Institute know by 24 January 2003 if you intend to come, to help us plan for lunch: telephone: (01223) 335984; fax: (01223) 330508. There are limited funds available to assist research students to attend: please apply by 24 Janaury 2003 to Tracey Andrew .

Unfortunately the Newton Institute is unable to offer any assistance with accommodation for this period.
