Benjamin Stamm - UC Berkeley
The subsequent discretization of the EFIE is a common approach to solve scattering problems on unbounded domains which is known as the Boundary Element Method (BEM) or Method of Moments (Mom). In...

Prof. F. Alberto Grunbaum - UC Berkeley
Quantum as well as classical random walks give a nice playground for the use of harmonic analysis, the theory of special functions, combinatorics, group representation theory, functional analysis,...

Vidar Thomee - Chalmers University
We discuss some versions of a numerical method for the discretization in time of an initial value problem for a parabolic equation in a Banach space framework. The method applies a quadrature rule to...

Randall LeVeque - University of Washington, Seattle
Hyperbolic systems of partial differential equations often arise when modeling phenomena involving wave propagation or advective flow. Finite volume methods are a natural approach for conservation...

Prof. Thomas Tonev - University of Montana, Missoula
Abstract available in PDF.

Robert D. Russell - Simon Fraser University
Over the last several decades, many mesh generation methods and a plethora of adaptive methods for solving differential equations have been developed. In this talk, we take a general approach for...

Dr. Dmitriy Zanin - Flinders University
Johnson and Schechtman proved a remarkable generalization of Rosenthal inequalities for symmetric spaces which contain Lp. Astashkin and Sukochev proved these inequalities to be valid for larger...

Prof. Tara Holm - Cornell University
Localization is a topological technique that allows us to make global equivariant computations in terms of local data at the fixed points. For example, we may compute a global integral by summing...

Professor Robert Adler - Technion - Israel Institute of Technology
The field of algebraic topology focuses on studying topology, or shape, using algebraic concepts such as homology and homotopy groups. A comparatively recent addition to this literature has been the...
