Workshop on Recent Developments in Modelling and Analysis in Porous Media

March 05/06 2020 • Erlangen, Germany

On March 5th and 6th 2020 there will be an International Workshop on Recent Developments in Modelling, Analysis and Simulation of Processes in Porous Media, organized by the Chair of Applied Mathematics I at Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nürnberg.

The day before, on the afternoon of March 04, 2020, Prof. Peter Knabner will give his last, valedictory lecture.


In the interdisciplinary enterprise of understanding processes in porous media, mathematical modeling at appropriate scales is impossible without further developments in mathematical theory, numerical approximations, and large-scale computational algorithms.

Scientists of varying backgrounds face similar issues in different fields and perspectives, in particular, this enables an enhanced exchange between various branches of applied mathematics with the geosciences, ensures the dissemination of appropriate tools and methods, and fosters useful fundamental research in applied mathematics. These kinds of interactions are needed for meaningful progress in understanding and predicting complex physical phenomena in the geosciences.

Invited Speakers:

Hans van Duijn, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands

Rainer Helmig, Institute for Modelling Hydraulic and Environmental Systems, University of Stuttgart, Germany

Mario Putti, Department of Mathematics, University of Padova, Italy

Florin A. Radu, Deparment of Mathematics, University of Bergen, Norway
