Nonlinear PDEs, Numerical Analysis, and Applications

On October 2-3, 2015 the Department of Mathematics, with support from the NSF and IMA, hosted the conference, “Nonlinear PDEs, Numerical Analysis, and Applications.”  This conference created a forum for junior and senior researchers to discuss challenges and to disseminate recent advances on numerical methods for fully nonlinear PDEs and their applications.  Ten domestic and international speakers presented their research including: Roland Glowinski on  discretization techniques for Eikonal systems; Ricardo Nochetto on discrete Alexandroff estimates and rates of convergence of finite element discretizations; Adam Oberman on finite difference discretizations of  the optimal transport problem; Xiaoming Feng on semi-Lagrangian methods for the Monge-Ampere equation.  The conference supported roughly 20 graduate students and postdocs to attend and participate.  The organizers thank all of the speakers and participants for making this a stimulating and successful conference.  Details of the conference can be found at the website:
