Numerical Methods on Multiscale Partial Differential Equations - Part I of III

(Invited Minisymposium)

(For Parts II and III, see MS20 and MS45)

4:00 PM-6:30 PM
Room: Capitol North

Many physical problems of fundamental and practical importance are described by partial differential equations that have solutions with significant behavior that occurs at different time and space scales. A complete mathematical analysis of these nonlinear problems is extremely difficult in general and therefore in most practical situations, accurate numerical modeling and simulations are highly desirable and even necessary. In this minisymposium, the speakers will discuss the modeling and numerical issues in multiscale problems that arise in schocastic and turbulent flows, materials, semiconductors, and related physical problems.
