School - Fundamentals and practice of finite elements

Roscoff, from april 16th to april 20th 2018

Organization board: Martin Costabel, Eric Darrigrand, Monique Dauge, Emmanuelle Guiot, Yvon Lafranche, Florian Rogowski

Scientific board: Monique Dauge (Univ. Rennes 1), Ilaria Perugia (University of Vienna)

This school combines 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.
