International Workshop

Reliable Methods of Mathematical Modelling


Applications in Science and Technology

Agora, Jyväskylä, Finland, September 25-27, 2003

University of Jyväskylä
Department of Mathematical Information Technology

The workshop is focused on the reliable methods of mathematical modelling used in the modern numerical analysis of problems in mechanics, physics, biology and other areas that lead to large scale models for differential equations. It is intended to present recent advances in developing effective mesh-adaptive numerical methods based upon a posteriori error estimates and stimulate the exchange of scientific ideas in these areas.

Contributions are welcomed in the following research areas:

1. a priori and a posteriori error control of numerical solutions,

2. mesh-adaptive methods based upon a posteriori error estimators of various types,

3. effective numerical methods for solving finite dimensional problems.
