Highly Oscillatory Problems


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.

13th September 2010 to 17th September 2010

Chair: Professor A Iserles (Cambridge)

Co-Chair: Professor C Le Bris (France)

Organising Committee: Professor F Bornemann (Munich), Professor S Chandler-Wilde (Reading), Professor B Engquist (Austin), Professor E Hairer (Geneve), Dr L Halpern (Paris) and Professor R Hiptmair (Zuerich)

Workshop Theme

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.
