Abstract:

During this workshop, approximately 100 participants whose names are appended from industry, academia, Department of Defense, and other national laboratories heard talks on the theory and practice of adaptive approaches in several mathematical areas and physical disciplines. Also, for the first time in this series of workshops, a full day tutorial was held on May 17, covering some of the more germane issues in adaptivity. This tutorial, conducted by J. Tinsley Oden and two of the meeting co-organizers, Joseph E. Flaherty and Mark Shepherd, discussed topics ranging from the underlying principles of a priori error estimation, to adaptive methods for transient problems, to computational geometric approaches for automatic three-dimensional finite element mesh generation. Workshop, Adaptive methods, Partial differential equations, Adaptivity, Priori error estimation.
