PDE 2019: Partial Differential Equations in Fluids and Solids

Weierstrass Institute Berlin, 9-13 September 2019

Scientific scope

This workshop fuses expertise on the analysis of PDEs in solids, fluid dynamics, complex fluids, and interaction of fluids with solid structure. Its goal is to create new synergies among these fields in order to advance analytical methods for current research related to systems with bulk-interface interaction, geometrically nonlinear materials, and fluid-structure interaction. This concerns, e. g., Lagrangian and Eulerian descriptions, free boundaries and moving domains, and variational approaches via energy/entropy methods.

In addition, PDE 2019 will host a meeting of the Activity Group Analysis of PDEs of GAMM (Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik / International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics).
