Fast Spectral Methods: Algorithms, Analysis and Applications
Prof. Jie Shen
Purdue University (USA) and Xiamen University (China)

In recent years, spectral methods have become a major tool for computational scientists and engineers because of their superior accuracy and efficiency when properly implemented. In this talk, I shall present essential ingredients to construct fast spectral algorithms and to carry out their error analysis. I shall also present, as examples of applications, fast spectral methods for acoustic/electromagnetic scattering, microstructure evolution, mutli-phase complex  flows, as well as fractional differential equations.
