June 20th – 24th
Department of Mathematics, Warwick University
Organizers: Andreas Dedner (University of Warwick, UK), Robert Klöfkorn and Martin Nolte (University of Freiburg, Germany).
The Distributed and Unified Numerics Environment (DUNE) is a modular toolbox for solving partial differential equations using grid-based methods with special emphasise on parallel computing using distributed grids. This one week course will give an introduction to the DUNE core modules including the DUNE grid interface library, and the DUNE-FEM module. The school consists of lectures providing required background information but consists to a large part of hands on practical session.
The course will focus on the numerical treatment of evolution equations of the form
using continuous and discontinuous Galerkin methods. These schemes will be implemented with the DUNE-FEM module. We will introduce the dune core modules focusing on the parallel grid interface. Then the DUNE-FEM module will be introduced which provides interfaces for implementing higher order numerical methods. The emphasis will be on solving evolution equation on complex domains included surfaces using local adaptivity, parallelization and load balancing to obtain highly efficient numerical methods.
This event is made possible by funding from the EPSRC's S\&I Centre for Numerical Algorithms and Intelligent Software (NAIS), the EPSRC's Mathematics and Statistics Centre for Doctoral Training (MASDOC), and the UK & Republic of Ireland SIAM section (SIAM UKIE).

Registration and Accommodation
Please register in advance since there is only a limited number of spaces available ( register ).
There are also a limited number of rooms available on campus
- MRC houses: there are a few 3 bedroom houses available for 12 GBP per night per room.
- There are a number of B&Bs off campus, e.g., in Kenilworth
Abbey G H, Ferndall, Hollyhurst, Enderley, Westwood Cottage. Links to these and others can be found here.
The Maths Research Center (MRC) can help with booking accommodation after registration.
Where possible, visitors should obtain an EDUROAM account from their own university to enable internet access whilst at Warwick.
