Spring School 2011 - Scope

The mathematical description of many problems in science and engineering leads to linear and nonlinear partial differential equations in which time is a distinguished variable. In the course of studying these evolution equations, it turns out that analytical and numerical questions are often closely related.

This Spring School intends to bring together students and younger researchers from different mathematical schools and to offer an environment to acquire basic and more advanced techniques in the field of evolution equations.

In a series of four lectures, each of four international experts will give an introduction and present new analytical as well as numerical results on topics of recent interest.

In order to enable an intensive exchange, to enhance the communication and lasting relationships, all the participants are encouraged to present their own work in a short talk or with a poster.
