Mini-course/workshop on the application of computational mathematics to plasma physics

Dates: 24–27 June 2019
Venue: , Hanna Neumann Building (145), Australian National University, Canberra

  • June 24–25: Mini-course

The mini-course is intended to familiarise the students and staffs in both computational mathematics and plasma physics with numerical methods relevant to the workshop. It is also helpful as a recap for mathematicians, and an opportunity for physicist to understand the underlying mathematics of the relevant numerical codes.

  • June 26–27: Workshop

In the workshop, plasma physicists will describe unsolved or difficult computational plasma physics problems they have encountered in their work. Mathematicians will present potential applications of their work.
