• Solid State Electrochemistry Workshop
  • Solid State Electrochemistry Workshop

The workshop treats recent trends in multiple shooting for the solution of boundary value and optimization problems for differential equations, in particular optimal control. Especially for PDE, multiple shooting is discussed in the wider framework of various time domain decomposition methods. Altogether, the range from numerical analysis and algorithmic aspects to challenging applications is covered.


The focus will be on


  • the presentation of different TDD methods and the connections between them in different contexts as well as the discussion of starting points for possible future algorithmic features that will be useful or necessary in more complex mathematical frameworks;
  • the discussion of challenging applications, e.g. optimal control in the context of PDE models with unstable solutions (like control of fluid-structure interaction problems or optimization of turbulent flow) or the employment of TDD methods in parameter estimation and optimum experimental design.


Invited Speakers (confirmed):
H. G. Bock (Heidelberg), M. Diehl (Leuven), M. J. Gander (Geneva), Y. Hasegawa (Tokyo), M. Heinkenschloss (Houston), V. Schulz (Trier), S. Ulbrich (Darmstadt)

MuS-TDD Studentships:
The workshop is able to fund a limited number of MuS-TDD-2013 Studentships for research students, who do not have other means of support. These studentships will cover part of travel and/or accomodation costs. To apply the student should send an application together with a supporting letter from his/her supervisor to
mus-tdd@uni-hd.de. Deadline for submission is April 14, 2013.
