Summer School
Computational Mathematics in Gdańsk
03-09 July 2022

Institute of Mathematics of Polish Academy of Sciences & Gdańsk University of Technology

The purpose of the Summer School is to introduce young mathematicians with an interest in computational mathematics - advanced master students, research students, postdocs and early-career researchers - to modern and developing trends in the subject and to topics at the centre of worldwide research effort.

There will be five short lecture courses by leading international authorities and plenty of opportunity to interact with the speakers and other participants.

The workshop will be held in the beautiful Hanseatic port city of Gdańsk. We expect to offer a number of places to Polish research students who will benefit most from this opportunity.

The Lecturers:

Anders Hansen (Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge, UK)
The SCI hierarchy - On the extended Smale's 9th problem, the limits of AI and the frontiers of computational mathematics
Erik O. Hiltunen (Department of Mathematics, Yale University, USA)
Functional analytic methods for discrete approximations of subwavelength resonator systems
Annika Lang (Department of Mathematical Sciences, Chalmers and University of Gothenburg, Sweden)
Introduction to stochastic partial differential equations and their approximation
Caroline Lasser (Centre for Advanced Study, Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, Norway and Department of Mathematics, Technical University of Munich, Germany)
