16-20 April 2018 - Spring School - Fundamental and Practice of Finite Elements, Centre Henri Lebesgue - Roscoff

This Spring School was organized by IRMAR for the semester "Scientific Computing". All information on the website of the event https://www.lebesgue.fr/en/content/sem2018-ElFin.

This school combines high-level courses on theoretical aspects of finite elements, with more practical implementation issues via an open source C++ library . We propose three different activities:

  • Three main courses (ca 5h each) given by
    • Ricardo Nochetto, University of Maryland, USA
      Adaptive Finite Element Methods: Convergence and Optimality
    • Paul Houston, University of Nottingham, UK
      Discontinuous Galerkin Finite Element Methods on Polytopic Meshes
    • Ralf Hiptmair, ETH Z├╝rich, Switzerland
      Boundary Element Methods: Design, Analysis, and Implementation
  • An initiation to the finite element library XLiFE++ followed by several practical sessions on computers.
  • A few mini-courses about different related questions (eigenvalues, integral equations, fast methods, singularities) given by members of the organization board.
