The school is organized by the Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik in den Naturwissenschaften (Leipzig), the Institut für Geometrie und Praktische Mathematik (RWTH Aachen) and Institut für Informatik (Uni Kiel).



Hierarchical Matrices can be a useful tool for the treatment of integral operators as well as the solution of linear systems arising in the discretisation of elliptic partial differential equations. Moreover, the representation of matrices in the hierarchical matrix format is suitable for the efficient solution of matrix equations.

The aim of this school is to teach the necessary theoretical foundations for hierarchical matrices, but most of all the efficient implementation of the algorithms. The practical realisation on the computer will be done during the exercise courses in the afternoons. The participants will use the HLib library in order to assemble and solve BEM and FEM systems.

Lecture Notes are available.
