International Workshop on
Approximation of Singular Problems
Lisbon, 10-12 November 2004
Subject and Purposes
The mathematical modelling of physical problems often leads to differential or integral equations whose coefficients have singularities. The main objective of the present workshop is to bring together mathematicians who deal with problems of this kind in different fields. The workshop will focus on the asymptotic properties of the solutions of equations and discretization methods. The topics that will be discussed include mathematical modelling of physical phenomenae involving singularities; numerical solution of singular boundary value problems for ordinary differential equations; numerical integration of functions with singularities; computational methods for integral equations with singular kernels.
The conference will be held at Instituto Superior Técnico , in the centre of Lisbon.
The conference will consist of one-hour lectures by invited speakers and twenty minute contributed talks. The official language is English.
