The third winter school will cover two topics: modern numerical methods for nonlinear partial differential equations and level set technology for front propagation problems with applications to CFD and image processing. We will assume no specialized knowledge in the topics, but the attendants are assumed to have general knowledge of numerical methods for partial differential equations. Kenneth Hvistendahl Karlsen (UiB) and Helge Holden (NTNU) are responsible for the scientific contents of the lectures.

Winter schools in computational mathematics (137461/431) is a four-year project (2001-2004) funded by the Research Council of Norway. The winter schools will be held annually and last one week. The schools are aimed at graduate students and researchers at universities, research institutes and industry. Advanced undergraduate students are also welcome. The number of participants is limited.
The winter schools are held at Norwegian ski resorts and there will be time in the program for skiing and for other social activities in the evenings. The winter schools should therefore provide a perfect arena for making new contacts with other researchers.
Geilo is renowned as one of the best winter sports resorts in Northern Europe, located in the mountains between Oslo and Bergen (approximately 4 hours by train from each city). Geilo lies at an altitude of 800 meters with its highest alpine slope starting at 1178 meters above sea level. This ensures good snow conditions throughout the winter. Geilo offers 35 varied and well groomed downhill slopes and 18 lifts with a capacity of 22000 persons pr. hour. Moreover, there are excellent possibilities for cross country, with approximately 500 km of trails, both in the valley and in the mountains.
Dr. Holms Hotel is a distinguished hotel, with traditions back to 1909, located almost on top of the ski slopes.
Welcome to Geilo!
