Minisymposium: Advanced Numerical Methods for Hyperbolic Problems
The purpose of the minisymposium was to gather researchers interested in industrial application of numerical methods for hyperbolic problems. Hyperbolic systems are involved in the description of many physical problems, ranging from classical applications in aerodynamics to shallow water models for the simulation of waves in lakes and rivers, from combustion problems to hydrodynamical models of semiconductors, to mention just a few examples. Because of the actuality and impact of the subject, a recent European Marie Curie ITN project, called ModCompShock (Modelization and computation of shocks and interfaces) has been approved and has just started. The project involves eight main European Universities and several partner research centers. Several participants to the project were invited to contribute to the minisymposium, which became a unique opportunity of scientific exchange between this community and ECMI.
