PDE 2019: Partial Differential Equations in Fluids and Solids

Group Portrait PDE 2019

Weierstrass Institute Berlin, 9-13 September 2019

Announcement, scientific scope, and program

This workshop fuses expertise on the analysis of PDEs in solids, fluid dynamics, complex fluids, and interaction of fluids with solid structure. Its goal is to create new synergies among these fields in order to advance analytical methods for current research related to systems with bulk-interface interaction, geometrically nonlinear materials, and fluid-structure interaction. This concerns, e. g., Lagrangian and Eulerian descriptions, free boundaries and moving domains, and variational approaches via energy/entropy methods.

PDE 2019 runs from the afternoon of Monday, 9 September 2019, to Friday, 13 September 2019, at the Weierstrass Institute, Mohrenstraße 39, 10117 Berlin, Germany, see also `How to get to WIAS.’

In addition, PDE 2019 hosts a meeting of the Activity Group Analysis of Partial Differential Equations of GAMM (Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik / International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics) on Thursday, 12 September 2019, at 4 PM.

Accessibility, and day care for children

PDE 2019 takes place at the Erhard-Schmidt Lecture Room on the ground floor of the Weierstrass Institute. The place is wheel-chair accessible by appointment. Kindly inform us about any particular needs. If you need day care for your children during PDE 2019, please get in touch with us. We would be happy to help you!
