About the NumHyp conference

NumHyp 2021 is the seventh in a series of biannual conferences that began with a meeting in Castro Urdiales, Spain in 2009. Further editions of this conference were held in Roscoff, France in 2011, Aachen, Germany in 2013, Cortona, Italy in 2015, Monte Verità, Switzerland in 2017 and in Málaga, Spain in 2019. These conferences focus on recent developments and new directions in the area of numerical methods for hyperbolic and convection dominated time-dependent partial differential equations (PDEs). These PDEs arise in a large number of models in science and engineering. Prominent examples include the compressible and incompressible Euler and Navier-Stokes equations, the shallow water equations, the magneto-hydrodynamics equations, multiphase fluid models, hyperbolic formulations of continuum mechanics and even general relativity. Examples of application areas are aerodynamics, oceanography, plasma physics, solid mechanics, computational astrophysics etc.

These PDEs have been subject to extensive analytical and numerical studies over the last decades. It is widely known that their solutions can exhibit very complex behavior including the simultaneous presence of smooth waves, like acoustic or electromagnetic waves, as well as discontinuities such as shock waves and material interfaces. They also exhibit a sensitive dependence on initial conditions, presence of multiple scales in space and time, appearance of turbulent regimes, etc. The design and the analysis of numerical methods with good properties to solve them are still a major challenge even nowadays.

This conference is dedicated to the 75th birthday of Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Eleuterio F. Toro, OBE.

NumHyp 2021 will be a key activity of the PRIN 2017 project Innovative numerical methods for evolutionary partial differential equations and applications funded by the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MIUR).

About Trento and the Dolomites

The historical city of Trento is situated in the autonomous Italian region of Trentino - Alto-Adige, close to the world-famous mountains called Dolomites. Trento is very easy to reach by car or train from Austria (150 km south of Innsbruck) and from Verona (90 km north of Verona). The nearest and most convenient airport is Verona Airport, 15 minutes from the Verona train station. The region around Trento is of extraordinary beauty, with its unique mountains and lakes that offer the participants many exciting outdoor activities like skiing, hiking or climbing.
