School 1: October 10-15, 2016

Analysis and Numerics of Acoustic and Electromagnetic Problems


Local Co-Organizers

Main topics

The school will provide lectures within the topic of electromagnetic problems governed by Maxwell's equations and will cover both analytical and numerical aspects in equal shares. The lectures will be interesting for an audience of rather different levels: from basic (introductory) questions, tools and theories to quite advanced topics.
The lectures will cover different aspects, namely, physical motivations, mathematical formulations, mathematical tools, solution theories as well as numerical methods and error control techniques.

Some key words: general operator theoretical setting, solution theories, Maxwell estimates, Helmholtz decompositions, finite element method, boundary element method, a posteriori error estimates
