Short Course on Advanced Numerical Methods for Hyperbolic Equations

Laboratory of Applied Mathematics, University of Trento, Italy
The course is held in hybrid format onsite and will also be made available online via ZOOM

Lecturers:     Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Dumbser and Dr. Laura del Río.
                      Two special lectures will be given by Prof. Dr. Dr. hc. E.F. Toro, OBE 

Dates:           January 29 - February 2 2024  
Course fees: 250 EUR (online), 500 EUR (onsite for PhD students and post-docs)  

This advanced short course is primarily designed for PhD students and post-doctoral
researchers in applied mathematics, scientific computing, computational physics
and computational mechanics.


The course consists in a structured intensive one-week programme of 40 hours

of theoretical lectures and computer laboratory exercises on advanced numerical methods
for hyperbolic partial differential equations with applications in engineering and
The course covers high order finite volume and discontinuous Galerkin methods, also on
unstructured triangular simplex meshes; Riemann solvers, higher order TVD, ENO and WENO schemes, the discretization of hyperbolic PDE with non-conservative products, well
balanced schemes as well as meshless Lagrangian particle methods. The lectures are
supplemented with extensive computer laboratory exercises to provide practical hands-on
experience concerning the practical aspects of the implementation of these advanced
numerical methods.
