Computer simulation is perceived today as a "third leg" of
physical research, complementing theory and experiment. It
is very often used as an adjunct to, or
substitute for, modeling systems for which simple closed
form analytic solutions are not possible. There are many
types of computer simulations; their common feature is the
attempt to generate a sample of representative scenarios
for a model in which a complete enumeration of all
possible states of the model would be prohibitive or
In this setting the use of numerical analysis is of course
absolutely relevant, and not only in engineering and
physics, but also in the life sciences and even the arts.
Just to quote a few examples, numerical ordinary
differential equautions appear in celestial mechanics and
dynamical astronomy, numerical linear algebra play a
fundamental role in data analysis, and stochastic
differential equations and Markov chains are essential in
simulating living cells for medicine and biology.
Overarching these fields, the area of foundations of
computational mathematics lies at the interface of
mathematics and computations.
The aim of the workshop
is to give a glimpse of the new results in these areas by
three world recognized experts and to provide a platform
for exchanging new ideas and results in numerical
analysis, simulation and computational mathematics.

The workshop will take place at
the Lecture Room TI2328DS, at the Department
of Mathematics. In this map of the
campus we have indicated the location of
the Department of Mathematics / IMAC, in
addition to the last stop of the tram and the
main entrance to the ESTCE.
