Multi-Scale and High-Contrast PDE

Multi-Scale and High Contrast PDE:
from Modelling to Mathematical Analysis to Inversion

Mathematical Institute, Oxford, OX1 3LB

28 June -1 July 2011

This workshop brings together senior experts and young researchers interested in the mathematical problems associated with imaging of multi-scale or high-contrast materials, working on the different aspects of these problems. 

Main themes:

●        Heterogeneous random media, at high frequency, and identification

●        High contrast elliptic systems

●        Imaging: invisibility and hybrid imaging methods

●        Numerical methods for high frequency problems
