Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for Partial Differential Equations (07w5506)
Bernardo Cockburn (University of Minnesota)
Dominik Schoetzau (University of British Columbia)
Chi-Wang Shu (Brown University)
The importance and popularity of discontinuous Galerkin methods has been demonstrated in two recent journals devoting special issues to these methods:
B. Cockburn and C.-W. Shu: Foreword for the special issue on discontinuous Galerkin method, Journal of Scientific Computing, v22-23 (2005), pp.1-3.
C. Dawson, Foreword for the special issue on discontinuous Galerkin method,
Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, v195 (2006), p.3.
In this meeting, we plan to bring together the 25-30 top experts in the field of discontinuous Galerkin methods and to make progress in the important issues
identified above. We will also reserve 10-15 slots for postdocs and senior graduate students.
