4th Conference on Numerical Methods for Fractional-Derivative Problems


The 4th Conference on Numerical Methods for Fractional-Derivative Problems, which was scheduled to take place on  4-6 June, will now take place Online during 22-24 October 2020.

If you wish to give a 25-minute talk that is directly relevant to the Objectives of the Conference, then submit your abstract by 1 October 2020, following the instructions on the webpage "Submission of abstracts".

Objectives: In recent years there has been an explosion of research activity in numerical methods for fractional-derivative(FD) differential equations. Much of the published work has been concerned with solutions to FD problems that are globally smooth --- but simple examples show that for given smooth data, the solutions to FD problems typically have weak singularities at some boundary of the domain, so globally smooth solutions are very unusual. 

This conference will focus on the numerical solution of more typical (and more difficult) FD problems whose solutions exhibit weak singularities.  As the definitions of fractional derivatives are nonlocal, there is also the issue of how to avoid excessive memory storage and expensive calculations in their implementation. Thus there are two objectives to this research:
(i) the design and analysis of methods (finite difference, finite element, ...) for FD problems; 
(ii) the efficient computation of numerical solutions.

Another aim of this conference is to explore the application of FD theory to various inverse problems. Here the aim is to recover model parameters (for instance, initial values, model coefficients, fractional orders or domains of  FD equations) from a knowledge of forward solutions. Solution of the inverse problem relies heavily on the analysis and numerics of the forward model.

Deadline for registration and abstract submission:8 October 2020--see Registration page for details
