The school will be devoted to the study of new techniques and approaches for solving partial differential equations, which can either be considered or arise from the physical point of view or the mathematical perspective. Both sides are extremely important since theories and methods can be developed independently, aiming to gather each other in a common objective. The summer school aims to progress and advance in the problems considered. Note that real-world problems and their applications are classical study trends in physical or mathematical modelling.

With this event, Ghent university will be a host to a diversity of cultures. The summer school will be organised in a friendly atmosphere and synergy, and it will be an excellent opportunity to promote and encourage the development of the subject in the community. Furthermore, close contact with worldwide experts will stimulate participants’ skills in independent research and collaborations with other researchers. Frequently, schools also lead to some excellent possibilities for collaborations with experts in Europe and other continents, which work on related topics. Moreover, it shall enhance further collaborations established during this program. Through these collaborations, the expertise held by the European mathematical community can grow and expand to international interest in the topic. It will bring considerable benefit in the future development of the academic career for the participants while enriching competitiveness.

Information for participants

For attending the school, the charge is 10 euro per day to cover organisational expenses. The participation of PhD candidates from Doctoral Schools at UGent, colleagues from UGent, and Lecturers is free of charge.

If you need administrative support (visa, accommodation, etc.) for your attendance, please let us know in advance. 

Public Lecture

The public lecture entitled

“Can we divide vectors? Geometric calculus in Science and Engineering”

will be given by Uwe Kähler (University of Aveiro, Portugal). Prof. Kähler is a world-leading expert on complex, Clifford, and harmonic analysis and their applications to wavelets and PDEs. He currently serves as president of the International Society for Analysis, Applications and Computation (ISAAC).
