Theme of Workshop:

Highly oscillatory phenomena occur in a wide range of mathematical applications: from fluid to solid mechanics, electromagnetics, acoustics, combustion, computerised tomography and imaging, molecular dynamics, quantum chemistry, plasma transport and electrical engineering. Such phenomena have attracted a great deal of mathematical attention, mainly in harmonic analysis, asymptotic analysis, homogenisation, differential geometry, theory of Hamiltonian systems and theory of integrable systems. They have an oft-undeserved reputation of being hopelessly difficult to analyse and to compute: the truth of the matter is that, once they have been understood from the mathematical standpoint, effective computational algorithms are bound to follow.


The workshop will take place at the Newton Institute and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study bedrooms with shared bathroom at Fitzwilliam College.
The conference package, includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on Sunday 12 September 2010 to lunch on Friday 17 September 2010, and lunch and refreshments during the days that lectures take place.

Breakfast and Dinner will be served at Fitzwilliam College about ten minutes' walk away from the Institute.

Lunch will be served at Wolfson Court, adjacent to the Institute.
