Course on Numerical Linear Algebra
Barcelona, July 2-6,
There is a large class of problems, of different origin, whose
numerical treatment ends up in a problem of numerical linear algebra.
Typical examples come from Partial Differential Equations,
optimization problems and the treatment of large sets of data. The
school is aimed at researchers (mathematicians, physicists, engineers,
etc) whose field of research is not Numerical Linear Algebra, but due
to their need of doing medium and large scale computations, they would
benefit from an up-to-date knowledge of the existing NLA resources.
The lecturers of the courses are Julien Langou (University of
Colorado), David Silvester (University of Manchester) and Danny C.
Sorensen (Rice University).
The course will
take place at Room B2, located at
the ground level of the Court of Sciences (Pati de Ciencies), in
the right part of the historical building of the Universitat
de Barcelona (the address is at the end of this page). We will provide
wifi access for the participants.
How to arrive
J. Langou: Survey and description of the most
useful packages/libraries available for Numerical Linear Algebra
D. Silvester: Fast solvers for elliptic PDEs
D.C. Sorensen: General overview of Numerical
To attend you must preregister first. To do it, click here. As the attendance is
limited, the preregistration will be closed when the course is full.
The registration fee is of 50€ for researchers belonging to the
Consolider project i-MATH, and 100€ for other researchers. Details will
be e-mailed to preregistered participants.
There are some grants to help with the local expenses to young
students. If you are interested, mark the appropriate box when
preregistering, send your CV (in pdf format) to the address nla07imub.ub.es, and ask a
senior researcher to e-mail a support letter to the same address,
including the phone of the supporter.
Note that finantial help will be granted with the following order of
priority: young researchers belonging to teams included in i-MATH,
other researchers belonging to these teams, other spanish
participants, non-spanish participants.
The deadline to ask for a
grant is May 18. Granted students will be
notified by e-mail on May 25.
