Applied Mathematics Symposium Münster

Organized irregularly by members of the Institute, the Applied Mathematics Symposium aims at bringing together leading experts in fields of current research conducted by faculty  in Münster.

6th Applied Mathematics Symposium Münster
Workshop: Recent advances in the Calculus of Variations

September 16-19, 2019

The Calculus of Variations is a research field whose boundaries have been constantly pushed by questions emerging both in pure mathematics and in the applied sciences. The scope of this Workshop is to bring together experts in the field who will present talks on recent advances in theoretical and applied problems in the Calculus of Variations.

5th Applied Mathematics Symposium Münster
Workshop: Transport Mixing and Fluids
February 11-13, 2019

Mechanisms of transport and mixing play an essential role in the dynamics of ideal fluids. Their study has immediate impact on the understanding of turbulent incompressible or compressible flows, with real-world applications e.g. in oceanography or atmospheric dynamics.

This workshop will explore transport and mixing phenomena from a broad intradisciplinary perspective, involving PDE techniques, harmonic analysis, optimal transport, stochastic PDEs, numerical simulation, and modelling aspects.

4th Applied Mathematics Symposium Münster
Workshop: Analytical and numerical aspects of wave propagation in complex structures
March 15th - March 16th, 2018

Wave propagation in complex structures has received growing interest over the last years. New analytical and numerical tools and methods are needed to better understand, analyze and simulate arising physical phenomena such as band gaps, artificial magnetism and negative refraction. Topics include homogenization, Bloch-wave analysis and radiation conditions as well as numerical multiscale methods and discretization methods for wave propagation problems in frequency and time domain.

This workshop wants to bring together researchers from analysis and numerics to discuss recent developments in this field and exchange their ideas.

3rd Applied Mathematics Symposium Münster
Workshop: Shape, Images and Optimization
February 28th - March 3rd, 2017

A profound mathematical basis has been developed for shape and image processing over the past decades. In particular variational methods have proved powerful, and modern optimization algorithms allow their efficient solution.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together leading experts in image processing, shape analysis and optimization, in order to exchange and discuss new ideas and challenges in the fields.

2nd Applied Mathematics Symposium Münster
Workshop: Numerical Schemes for Surface Partial Differential Equations
February 22-24, 2016

Partial differential equations (PDEs) on surfaces can be used to model various processes from physics, biology and chemical science. Since analytical solutions usually are unavailable, state-of-the-art numerical methods are required for simulating the model equations.

The goal of this workshop is to foster the intensive exchange of recent results and ideas by bringing together experts on surface PDEs and numerical schemes for this class of equations.

1st Applied Mathematics Symposium Münster
Variational Methods for Dynamic Inverse Problems and Imaging
September 28-30, 2015

The aim of this workshop is to collect different aspects of variational methods in imaging and inverse problems, with a particular focus on dynamic problems.
