The focus will be put on four main topics:
• Variational methods for continuum mechanics,
• Gradient and Hamiltonian structures,
• Dynamical systems,
• Multiscale problems.
Applications may include modeling of smart materials, interrelation between stochastics and PDEs, multi-particle systems, transition from discrete to continuum, quantum mechanics, and reaction-diffusion systems.
The workshop starts Monday, September 24, at 9 am and ends Friday, September 28, at about 1 pm. There will be 12 keynote lectures (45 min) and about 30 invited presentations (30 min). The talks scheduled on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday will take place in the Erhard-Schmidt lecture hall of the Weierstrass Institute. On Wednesday, September 26, we are planning a social event in the morning and a workshop dinner in the evening.
The afternoon of the 26th is reserved for a special colloquium in honor of the 60th birthday of Professor Alexander Mielke, which will take place in lecture hall 1.101, Universitätsgebäude am Hegelplatz, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Dorotheestr. 24, 10117 Berlin).
