Implicit-Explicit Time Integration Methods (22rit270)


(University of Saskatchewan)


The Banff International Research Station will host the "Implicit-Explicit Time Integration Methods" workshop in Banff from September 25, 2022 to October 2, 2022.

Society has become increasingly dependent on mathematical modeling of phenomena for scientific and technological advancement. This has led to an increase in demand in the fidelity of the models to reality, and hence an increase in model complexity and computational demands. Although computer hardware continues to become increasingly powerful, algorithms that can take advantage of such hardware and simulate complex systems efficiently are no less essential. This focussed research group examines implicit-explicit time-integration methods, which are a divide-and-conquer strategy for improving the efficiency of simulating complex mathematical models that describe important phenomena. This allows researchers to better be able to go from hypothesis to actionable policy.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
