In the isogeometric framework, the geometry description of the PDE domain is adopted from a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) parametrization usually based on Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS). These are a standard tool in CAD community because they are extremely convenient in the representation of free-form surfaces and because there are very efficient algorithms to evaluate, refine and derefine them. In IGA, these NURBS basis functions that represent the CAD geometry are also used as the basis for the discrete solution space of PDEs, following an isoparametric paradigm. IGA methodologies have been studied and applied in fields as diverse as fluid dynamics, structural mechanics and electromagnetics. The school is devoted to graduate students and young researchers, who are interested in not only CAD modeling but also classical Finite Element Methods (FEM).
