Maxwell Institute Colloquium on Modelling, Mathematics, and Computation of Complex Multiscale Systems

 Jul 02 2014
 Edinburgh

Scientific Organisers:

  • Ben Goddard, University of Edinburgh

  • Markus Schmuck, Heriot-Watt University

Complex Multiscale Systems (CMS) play a crucial and wide-ranging role in daily life. A problem of CMS is that they represent high dimensional computational problems which are beyond  most standard computational methods and when tractable often show unfavourable effects such as oscillations, finite time blow-up or unphysical solutions. Often, available macroscale models are not sufficiently accurate whilst the corresponding microscale models are too inefficient and/or result in excessively large amounts of data. Computational approaches attempt to combine these two viewpoints in the hope of achieving a reasonable compromise between accuracy and efficiency.

Speakers: 

  • Weinan E, Princeton University - Progresses and Challenges in Multiscale Modeling

  • Gero Friesecke, TU Munich - Does the Electronic Schrödinger Equation Explain the Chemical Behaviour of Atoms and Molecules? A Tale of Hidden Scales

  • Ping Lin, University of Dundee - Error Estimates for Quasi-Continuum Methods With Simple or Complex Lattice Structures

  • Lucia Scardia, University of Glasgow - Homogenisation of Dislocations Dynamics

 

This workshop was supported by the Maxwell Institute, the Centre of Numerical Algorithms and Intelligent Software and by the Centre for Analysis and Nonlinear PDEs.
