XV Spanish-French School on Numerical Simulation in Physics and Engineering

Sep 24 2012 - 00:00
Sep 28 2012 - 23:59

Torremolinos, Málaga (Spain)

Short description of the event: 

These schools, promoted by the Sociedad Española de Matemática Aplicada (SEMA) and the Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles (SMAI), are aimed at master students, PhD students, recent PhD doctorates, and researchers in general willing to update their knowledge with recent developments on numerical techniques that play an important role in the international scene. As this type of techniques are useful in the mathematical modeling of many phenomena, researchers coming from different fields (mathematics, physics, engineering, biology, economics, etc) can be interested.

The core of the school, whose official language is English, will be composed by four 4-hour courses:

• Begoña Calvo Calzada. Universidad de Zaragoza

Fundamental aspects in modelling soft tissues behaviour

• Emmanuel Gobet. École Polytechnique, París

Introduction to stochastic calculus and to the resolution of PDEs using Monte Carlo simulations

• Enrique D. Fernández Nieto. Universidad de Sevilla

Some remarks on avalanches modelling

• Philippe G. LeFloch. Université Pierre et Marie Curie & CNRS

New trends in shock-capturing schemes. Geometric effects, controled dissipation, and late-time asymptotics

The courses will be complemented with the following 1-hour talks:

• Carlos Castro Barbero. Universidad Politécnica de Madrid

Numerical approximation of optimal design problems in aerodynamics. From the mathematical analysis to industrial codes

• Michel Langlais. Université Bordeaux 2

A further multiscale problem: spatio-temporal spread of an airborne plant pathogen through a highly anthropized and spatially structured crop system

• Fabien Mangeant. EADS

Statistical learning and reduced model techniques for uncertainty management in computer experiments

• Emanuele Schiavi. Universidad Rey Juan Carlos

Medical image processing: mathematical modelling and numerical resolution

• Denis Talay. INRIA Sophia Antipolis

On probabilistic approaches of partial differential equations involving a divergence form operator with discontinuous coefficients
