Polytopal Element Methods in Mathematics and Engineering

The purpose of this workshop is to promote communication among the many mathematical and engineering communities currently researching polytopal discretization methods for the numerical approximation of solutions of partial differential equations. A variety of distinct polytopal element methods (POEMs) have been designed to solve the same types of problems, but a workshop-type environment is required to foster a community-wide understanding of the comparative advantages of each technique and to develop a set of ‘best practices’ in regards to implementation.

Each member of the organizing committee is a specialist in a different kind of polytopal element method and will aid in attracting a diverse set of participants to the workshop. The workshop organizers are:

The workshop will be held from Monday October 26 - Wednesday October 28, 2015. For complete details, see the conference website.
