  • School - Masterclass 2017
    Dec 19, 2017 to Dec 21, 2017

    QR-Code

    Angers, from December 19th to December 21st

    Organization board: Etienne Mann

    We organize a masterclass in Angers, from 19th to 21st of December, 2017. Lectures will be in the morning sessions. We will have two parallel sessions:

    • Etienne Mann : Introduction to algebraic stacks
      We will introduce the notion of fibered category, Grothendieck topology and stacks. We will illustrate these notions on simple examples. These lectures are for Master (or PhD) students who had followed a introduction to algebraic geometry that is algebraic varieties and sheaves.
    • Loic Chaumont: Application of the matrix-tree-theorem

    The organisation board will pay the housing with breakfast and the lunches. The dinners are not payed by the organizers. For the travel expenses, we will do our best in the limit of our budget.

    Deadline 15th novembre. Limit 30 participants maximum.

L'objectif de ces journées est de permettre aux différents acteurs d'échanger sur les dernières avancées pour améliorer les performances du calcul scientifique. Des exemples d'applications seront présentés dans plusieurs domaines : auto-apprentissage, consommations électriques, télédétection, biologie...
    Ces journées sont organisées par l’agence Lebesgue de mathématiques pour l'innovation dont une des missions est de promouvoir les relations entre les mathématiciens et les scientifiques des entreprises.
    L’Agence est un interlocuteur naturel pour tout acteur du monde industriel confronté à un problème mathématique identifié. Il s’agit d’offrir les meilleures compétences mathématiques disponibles dans les Unités Mixtes de Recherche en Bretagne et Pays de la Loire, en particulier dans le domaine du calcul scientifique.

  • School - Fundamentals and practice of finite elements

    Scientific board: Monique Dauge (Univ. Rennes 1), Ilaria Perugia (TU Wien)

    This school will combine high-level courses on theoretical aspects of finite elements, with more practical implementation issues via an open source C++ library . We propose three different activities:

    1) The three main courses (ca 5h each) given by

    Ricardo Nochetto, University of Maryland, USA
    Adaptive Finite Element Methods: Convergence and Optimality

    Paul Houston, University of Nottingham, UK
    Discontinuous Galerkin Finite Element Methods on Polytopic Meshes

    Ralf Hiptmair, ETH Zürich, Suisse
    Boundary Element Methods: Design, Analysis, and Implementation

    2) An initiation to the finite element library XLiFE++ by Eric Lunéville, POEMS team, ENSTA ParisTech, followed by several practical sessions on computers.

    3) A few mini-courses about different related questions (eigenvalues, integral equations, fast methods, singularities) given by members of the organization board.

Workshop - Mathematical problems in kinetic theory
