Higher-order Methods for Conservation Laws

08/25/2014 - 08/27/2014
Conservation laws is one of the fundamental physical principles and widely used in many applications, such as fluid dynamics, acoustics and Electromagnetics. Mathematically, it is expressed as (a system of) non-linear hyperbolic partial differential equations, which defies the exact solution with analytical approaches. However, recent dramatic progresses in computational technology make it possible to obtain accurate solutions of conservation laws with high-fidelity numerical methods. The objective of this workshop is to present and/or introduce some recent progresses of higher-order numerical methods for conservation laws associated with fluid dynamics. This workshop will surely provide all participants a unique opportunity to discuss new ideas and issues with leading researchers and scientists in the fields of computational fluid dynamics and related applied mathematics.
