2013 Winter School on Advanced Numerical Methods
The Trento Winter School on Numerical Methods offers the following two intensive courses, of two-week duration each:
Hyperbolic Equations and Applications
Prof. Eleuterio Toro OBE, PhD, DhC
Prof. Ing. Michael Dumbser, PhD
February 4-15, 2013
Mathematical Methods for Engineering
Prof. Alberto Valli
Prof. Ana Alonso Rodriguez, PhD
February 18 - March 1, 2013
The courses of the Trento Winter School are concerned with classical and modern numerical methods for solving non-linear systems of time-dependent partial differential equations in complex domains using general meshes. A broad range of methodologies will be studied including: finite difference; finite volume; boundary element; continuous finite element; discontinuous Galerkin finite element and meshless Lagrangian particle methods. The courses are primarily intended for PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and researchers interested in, for example, environmental engineering, aerospace engineering, geophysics, astrophysics, computational fluid mechanics, industrial mathematics, vascular fluid dynamics, numerical analysis, applied mathematics, physics and computational science in general. To provide hands-on experience, the lectures on the theory will be supplemented with computing-laboratory based tutorials. The courses are also suitable for senior academics and industrial scientists in managerial positions interested in assessing new trends in numerical methods.
The courses offered by the Winter School are part of the Engineering Graduate School Environment Water (EGW) of the International Association of Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR). EGW is a network of several international institutions which offer academically-orientated education courses on water and environmental related fields.
