Workshop on Computational Methods for Hyperbolic Problems
University of Waterloo, Department of Applied Mathematics
Local Organizers : Lilia Krivodonova, Department of Applied
Mathematics, University of Waterloo


The goal of this workshop is to bring together active researchers
in the area of numerical solutions for hyperbolic problems. A variety
of numerical schemes for hyperbolic systems will be represented,
including nite volume, spectral element, discontinuous Galerkin
and meshfree methods. Modelling and high performance computing will
also be topics covered by the workshop.
ACCOMODATION: Hotel rooms have been prereserved in two
hotels. Please see the link at the top of this page for more information.
TRAVEL: Please see the link at the top of this page for directions
to Waterloo and to the workshop.
