HIM Junior Trimester Program (February - April 2008)

Computational Mathematics

Set-valued Numerical Analysis and Robust Optimal Control

March 27 - 29, 2008

The workshop aims at bringing together scientists from the fields of set-valued numerical analysis, (optimal) control, and robust optimization. Indeed, all these fields serve the purpose to handle dynamical systems that may change rapidly or can be described only with uncertainties. Applications beyond mathematical analysis, however, require computational methods for set-valued approaches and effective algorithms of optimal control. Up to now, these challenges are investigated via several concepts, but in a rather separated way. So in this workshop, representatives of different branches are to meet and exchange their inspiring experience.
