Modelling and Computation of Shocks and Interfaces


The proposed ITN entitled Modelling and computation of Shocks and Interfaces will focus on the training of young researchers in the general area of nonlinear hyperbolic and convection dominated PDEs with emphasis on innovative modelling and computational methods. The research program of the proposed ITN is centered on an important field (in terms of both history and scope), that is placed at the forefront of modern Computational and Applied Mathematics. The fact that hyperbolic convection dominated PDEs is probably one of the very few areas within Computational and Applied Mathematics, where traditionally modelling, Physics, Mechanics, analytical approaches, and advanced computational methods have contributed in synergy to several achievements to date, makes this field eminently suitable to train young researchers in. These researchers can become research leaders in a wide area as well as impacting on both industry and non-academic scientific institutions.
