Theme of EuroWorkshop

The EuroWorkshop will covers recent advances in the analysis of stochastic models for coagulation and fragmentation. Topics will include: deterministic scaling limits and analysis of limit equations, spatial models, multiple coagulation, homogeneous and self-similar processes, fast numerical schemes for coagulation/fragmentation equations, gelation phenomena. A special session will be devoted to applications in chemical engineering and computational issues arising in industrial applications.

Location and Cost

The EuroWorkshop will take place at the Newton Institute and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study bedrooms with private bathroom in New Hall (Buckingham House). Dinner and Lunch will be served at Wolfson Court. The workshop package, costing 550, includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on Sunday 7 December 2003 until breakfast on Saturday 13 December 2003, and lunch and refreshments during the days that lectures take place.


The EuroWorkshop is supported by the European Community and funding is available to support a limited number of young (under 35 years of age) researchers and overseas senior researchers who are nationals of EC Member States or of the Associated States (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Israel, Switzerland). Self-supporting participants of any age and nationality are welcome to apply. There are also limited programme funds available for which applications are welcome.
