Multiscale II: analysis and efficient simulation of multiscale problems.

The goal of the workshop is to stimulate an exchange of ideas between analysts and computational experts, and to focus on new approaches towards a better understanding of the intrinsic difficulties in problems with multiple scales in space and time.
In particular the workshop will focus on the following topics:

  1. Scientific problems with multiple scales in space and time: Phase transitions, molecular design/vibrations, microstructures.
  2. New analytical tools: H-measures, semiclassical measures, two-scale Young measures, averaging techniques.
  3. New computational methods: Essential molecular dynamics, quantum-classical coupling, symplectic/symmetric discretization schemes.
  4. Interaction of analytical and computational approaches.

The workshop is organized within the DFG-Schwerpunktprogramm DANSE.
