5th Applied Mathematics Symposium Münster

Transport, Mixing and Fluids

February 11-13, 2019

Münster, Germany


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.

Travel information

The University of Münster is located in Münster, Germany. (An alternative spelling of Münster is Muenster - note that this is different from Munster, Germany!)

  • By plane:
    The airport Münster-Osnabrück (FMO) is located 30 km from Münster. A bus service to Münster central station is available (45 min). The airport Düsseldorf (DUS) is further away, but offers far more international connections. The train ride to Münster central station is 90 minutes. Details about connecting busses and trains are available via bahn.de.
  • Public transport:
    Münster is well connected by train. For details see bahn.de. Starting at central station, several bus lines lead to the department. Best choices are probably bus routes 5, 11, 12, 22 direction Gievenbeck or Nienberge. Get off at bus stop Coesfelder Kreuz after about 15 minutes.
    To get to the department, go right and cross the street with traffic lights. There is a flat building right after the corner which is connected to a 9-story-building, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. Behind these buildings, there are two modern buildings with an aluminium-colored corrugated sheet facade. The workshop takes place in the modern building on the left.
  • By car:
    Use your favourite routing service. There are parking lots next to the buildings at

    Orleansring 10-12, 48149 Münster, Germany

    The buildings are new, and so is their address. Google Maps has them correctly listed.


We have reserved a number of hotel rooms at reduced workshop rates, which can be booked using the following link: http://bit.ly/HotelsMixingFluids.
On the map, the conference venue is marked by the red symbol.
