Conference Themes:

This conference presents recent advances in applied and computational mathematics with applications to fluid dynamics, materials science, kinetic theory, finance, and plasma physics. These fields have for many years formed a core for the application and development of advanced mathematical techniques and numerical algorithms in the sciences and engineering. Powerful analytical techniques such as the theory of hyperbolic PDE and shock waves, matched asymptotic analysis, homogenization theory, and the theory of solitons have emerged from the efforts of applied mathematicians and others working in these applications. Similarly, important numerical methods including the level set method, Monte Carlo methods, and advanced algorithms for multiscale simulation stemfrom these applications.

The research efforts of applied mathematicians in these fields is as vigorous as ever, and an aim of this workshop is to bring together leading experts, junior researchers, and students interested in new applications of mathematics and scientific computation to these areas. We expect that there will be significant cross-fertilization and exchange of ideas from researchers in the different fields, and the formulation of new and challenging problems that can have an impact across disciplines.

This conference also celebrates the 60th birthday of Russel Caflisch, who has made profound contributions to applied and computational mathematics, including applications of mathematics in fluid dynamics, finance, materials science, kinetic theory and plasma physics.
