Partial differential equations (PDEs) on surfaces can be used to model various processes from physics, biology and chemical science. Since analytical solutions usually are unavailable, state-of-the-art numerical methods are required for simulating the model equations.
The goal of this workshop is to foster the intensive exchange of recent results and ideas by bringing together experts on surface PDEs and numerical schemes for this class of equations. In particular, different numerical approaches shall be examined, with focus given to cases where an implicit domain description is beneficial, i.e. PDEs on complex-shaped surfaces. Particularly challenging topics include surfaces which evolve in time, incorporation of mass conservation into the schemes and coupling to bulk processes.
The program includes scheduled talks in which invited specialists give an overview of their own work and recent developments on an international level. Furthermore, participating PhD students and postdocs will be given the opportunity to present their work in spontaneous talks without a given a priori schedule. Ample opportunities for exchange, including discussions after each talk, shall allow early-stage and distinguished scientists to discuss challenges and open problems in this area of research and to identify ways to coordinate future efforts.
