Contents of the 2004 Winter School

The topic of the fourth winter school is adaptive methods for PDEs with particular emphasis on evolutionary equations. Lecturers are Mats G. Larson (Chalmers) and Rolf Rannacher (Heidelberg). The winter school lasts one week from Sunday to Friday evening and consists of approximately 15 double lectures. The lectures will give a self-contained presentation of adaptivity, starting with an introduction to simple principles and ending with advanced applications and recent results. We assume no specialized knowledge of adaptive methods, but the attendants are assumed to have general knowledge of numerical methods for partial differential equations.

Scientific committee: Aslak Tveito (Simula Research Center) and Knut-Andreas Lie (SINTEF).

About the Winter School Series

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.

Dr. Holms Hotel is a distinguished hotel, with traditions back to 1909, located almost on top of the ski slopes.

Welcome to Geilo!
