Winter School in Computational Mathematics 2002, Geilo, April 14-19, 2002

Contents of the 2002 Winter School

The topic of the second winter school was modern computational methods for fluid dynamics. Kenneth Hvistendahl Karlsen (UiB) and Helge Holden (NTNU) were responsible for the scientific contents of the lectures.

For more information, please contact Knut-Andreas Lie or Mariann Fjeldstad.


The winter school is registered as an advanced course at the University of Oslo under the acronym IN-MOD-BER (Modeller og beregninger) as a "Nasjonalt forskerkurs i realfag". The exam was made available on May 2 2002 with deadline May 31 at 12:00.

To register for the exam, please contact Ms. Jasmina Hodzic (+47 22 85 29 59) at Department of Informatics, University of Oslo. Students registered at the University of Oslo need only provide name and social number. If you need to transfer credits you must also send the necessary documentation by mail.

If you are not a student at the University of Oslo and wish to transfer credits for the exam to your own university, you must provide information that certifies that you are a (doctoral) student at another university. The following rules applies:

... Dersom du ikke tidligere har studert ved vertsinstitusjonen, må du i tillegg til din søknad om opptak til forskerkurs vedlegge dokumentasjon på immatrikulering (for eksempel rett bekreftet kopi av borgerbrev) eller en bekreftelse på opptak til doktorgradsstudiet, utstedet av ditt hjemme-universitet. En slik bekreftelse må inneholde ditt norske fødsels- og personnummer. ...

About the Winter Schools

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.

About Geilo and Dr. Holms Hotel

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.
