8th Conference on Numerical Methods for Fractional-derivative Problems

July 8-11, 2024 

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.
