Numerical and Computational Challenges in Science and Engineering

Informal Working Group on Dynamics of Numerics

August 7 - 10, 2001

Organizer: Tony Humphries (University of Sussex)
Co-organizer: Tom Fairgrieve (University of Toronto)

See the schedule page

First Announcement
We intend to hold an informal working group on the "Dynamics of Numerics" as part of the Fields Institute Thematic Year on Computational Challenges in Science and Engineering. This meeting will explore the use of dynamical systems techniques to study iterative processes. Subject matter is expected to include latest results, techniques, applications and future directions. There will also be free time for participants to interact more informally.

The meeting will be held in Toronto under the auspices of the Fields Institute Thematic Year on Computational Challenges in Science and Engineering, and cuts across all three of the Topics of Concentration in the first part of the Thematic Year (Numerical Solution of Ordinary Differential Equations, Numerical Linear Algebra, Numerical Aspects of Dynamical Systems).

As an informal meeting, there will be no registration fee. Note also that the Fields Institute will not be able to offer financial assistance to participants.

If you would like to participate please e-mail Dr. Tony Humphries
Provisional titles would be much appreciated, but abstracts are optional at this stage.
