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.

 

Women in PDEs @ Karlsruhe

On April 27-28, 2017 the workshop “Women in PDEs @ Karlsruhe” will take place. The aim of this workshop is to provide a Teaser image of the workshopplatform to bring together students of mathematics (in Bachelor or Master programs), young researchers (PhD students and postdocs) and established female mathematicians from academia and industry working on partial differential equations (PDEs). Outstanding invited speakers will give talks on their current research topics. A panel discussion will give the possibility to discuss questions not only concerning research but also career choices/planning and practical questions of managing career and family.

CRC-Workshop “Time integration of PDEs” 2016

From October 12th till October 14th the CRC workshop on Time Integration of PDEs 2016 took place in the Kurhaus Trifels in Annweiler, close to the castle Trifels. The about 20 participants informed each other by giving talks on their latest results of their research. The main topics were Krylov methods, highly oscillatory problems, alternating direction implicit methods as well as locally explicit and implicit time integration. The breaks between the sessions were used for many fruitful discussions and exchanges of ideas and also for doing undisturbed research in pairs or small groups. The wheather was well-disposed to us, which we used for a beautiful hiking tour on Thursday afternoon. The productive workshop ended with a project discussion on Friday afternoon.

Nonlinear PDEs and Mathematical Physics workshop

Last week I had the pleasure to participate in the “Nonlinear PDEs and Mathematical Physics workshop” at the Tsinghua Sanya International Mathematics Forum which took place in Sanya, the main city of China’s province Hainan.
It is an island at the most southern point of China and quite close to Macao, Hongkong or Vietnam. Hainan is a tourist region and all participants of the workshop could benefit (but sometimes also suffer) from the warm temperatures around 28 degree (Celsius). In summer it is even warmer so that we were very glad to have this conference at the beginning of December.

9th Workshop on Numerical Analysis of Evolution Equations

From the 8th until the 11th of November a group of 13 people from the KIT went to Innsbruck to participate in the 9th Workshop on Numerical Analysis of Evolution Equations. It took place at the Bildungsinstitut Grillhof in Vill, just outside Innsbruck. The nice location with amazing views on Innsbruck and its surrounding mountains and the great food provided the perfect environment for a successful workshop.
