The programme will feature talks by Gil Strang, Pavel Zhoblich, Des Higham, and Andrew Thompson.
The meeting will consist of eight half-day sessions, each concentrating on a particular research area that is currently attracting significant interest within the community. The sessions will address the following themes: Multiscale modelling Interface modelling PDEs on surfaces and geometric evolution problems Biomedical applications, including new modelling techniques and patient-specific applications Computational rheology Atomistic-to-continuum passage, density functional theory and quasi-continuum methods Low order modelling: widening the range of high-fidelity time-dependent simulations Uncertainty modelling.
NAIS Lecturer, Sebastien Loisel (Heriot Watt University) will give a talk at teh Strathclyde NA seminar series.
Title: Optimized domain decomposition methods that scale weakly
This is a 4-day meeting organized by the Numerical Algorithms and Intelligent Software Centre and the Centre for Analysis and Nonlinear PDE. The goal of this meeting is is to study problems at the interface of the numerics and PDE communities, examining a variety of different problems in nonlinear partial differential equations for which numerical treatments and the use of high performance computers may lead to important new insight.
This is the third of a series of Scottish Parallel Computational Mathematics Meetings to explore and develop synergies between major Scottish research activities in parallel computational mathematics, e.g. NAIS, HPC-GAP, SCIEnce, Computational Statistics and Cognitive Neuroscience, Vector Processing Languages.
John Blair-Smith (University of Edinburgh) will give a talk at the Strathclyde NA Seminar Series.
Title: History repeats itself in numeric and High Performance Computing
General-Purpose Graphics Processing Units are changing the landscape of high performance computing, with the current number one theoretical peak performance supercomputer Nebulae based GPUs. On October 26th you will have the opportunity to hear about the abilities of GPUs for high performance computing, directly from two of the nVIDIA researchers: Chris Butler and Timothy Lanfear. This workshop will include both an introduction to the architecture and capabilities of the new Tesla series GPUs, as well as exemplar applications.
This short meeting will feature a collection of introductory talks addressing computational techniques for studying relaxation processes and molecular structure of glasses. PhD students are especially encouraged to attend.
This is a workshop on Matrix and Operator Pencils, run by the EPSRC-funded MOPNET Network. The final day of the meeting is devoted to HPC issues and funded by NAIS.
This meeting will address formulation issues, numerical methods, and the implementation of algorithms for probing molecular models, especially multiscale simulation methods. We will bring together mathematicians and computer scientists with physical scientists, to accelerate the transfer of theoretical methodology mathematical ideas into application.
