Large-Scale Dynamical Systems

The numerical study of low-dimensional dynamics in large-scale sets of ODEs and discretizations of PDEs necessitates the development of special-purpose algorithms for simulation, stability and bifurcation analysis. This workshop addressed development and application of special iterative methods for large-scale systems that exploit local stability properties of the linearized system. It also considered global model reduction schemes for PDEs such as approximate inertial manifolds and lattice dynamics. Applications of special interest included selected problems arising in fluid flow and nucleation in alloys.
