2012 Winter School on Advanced Numerical Methods

The Winter School on Advanced Numerical Methods offers two two-week intensive courses:

Free-Surface Hydrodynamics
Prof. Vincenzo Casulli
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Dumbser
January 30- February 10, 2012

Hyperbolic Equations and Applications
Prof. Dr. Eleuterio Toro, OBE, DhC
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Dumbser
February 13-24, 2012

These two courses are concerned with advanced, modern numerical methods for  solving non-linear systems of  time-dependent partial differential equations in complex domains using general meshes. A broad range of schemes will be studied, including  finite difference, finite volume and discontinuous Galerkin finite element methods. In addition, meshless Lagrangian particle methods will also be considered. The courses are intended  primarily for PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and researchers interested in, for example,  environmental engineering, aerospace engineering, geophysics, computational fluid mechanics, industrial mathematics, numerical analysis, applied mathematics, physics and computational science in general. The course is also suitable for senior academics and industrial scientists in managerial positions, who are 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.
