CRC-Workshop Time Integration of PDEs 2019

During the week of the 7th to 11th October the annual CRC-workshop ‘Time Integration of PDEs’ has been held at the Marburgerhaus located at a southern slope in Hirschegg, Kleinwalsertal. In total fourteen researchers from our CRC joined the seminar. All talks were concerned with numerical and analytical aspects of time integration of partial differential equations.

In contrast to previous workshops of this series, where the current state of the own research was presented, this year the focus was set differently. Each speaker presented a paper related to his/their own work but written by others. Thanks to the different backgrounds of the speakers there was a wide range of topics from local time-stepping to well-posedness results obtained from Strichartz estimates. Due to the generous time-slots and the format of the workshop, there was also plenty of time for fruitful discussions and we thus learned a lot. We took the opportunity to think about new topics and ideas and potentially acquired a different perspective for our own research.

The seminar also included social aspects by hiking through the spectacular landscape of the Kleinwalsertal. Together we reached the 2058 meters high summit of the Kanzelwand. In addition some of us explored an ambitious via ferrata, others climbed the Hohen Ifen, and a third group took a stroll through the picturesque Breitachklamm.


NUMDIFF-15 conference in Halle (Saale)

From the 3rd to the 7th of September six researchers of our CRC visited the NUMDIFF-15 Conference which took place in Halle (Saale), Germany. The conference, hosted by the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, addressed all aspects of numerical simulation of differential equations. This time the emphasis was put on differential-algebraic equations (DAE) and stochastic differential equations (SDE).

We are proud to have represented our CRC  by contributing talks about the analytical and numerical treatment of wave phenomena to the conference. The scientific program contained many inspiring talks even though not all of them matched the research topics of our CRC.

Market Square of Halle

The time we did not spend on the conference site we used to explore the lovely city center of Halle, Handel’s native town. On Wednesday we took part in the excursion to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Bauhaus Dessau. In a guided tour we did not only learn a lot about the worldwide influence of Bauhaus in architecture and design but also about its history which is closely related to German history.

We are looking forward to contribute to the NUMDIFF-16 taking place in three years.
