The workshop on Computational Problems in Physics concentrates on new numerical challenges and approaches in computational physics. The five days workshop attracts about 60 physicists and applied mathematicians from a wide range of backgrounds to work on a few selected new problems. Participants of this first workshop will be researchers and PhD students especially from the Nordic countries.
The preselected problems are attacked in working groups. Adapting this model to the topic of the workshop means
In addition, a series of lectures on recent research topics relevant to the problems will be presented by experts in the field.
The workshop will also serve as a research training course for PhD students and post-docs.
We belive that bringing together computational physicists, applied mathematicians, and numerical analysts to work a week on a set of new computational problems in physics will have wider benefits including:
On the first day of the workshop, the problems are outlined by people who have encountered them and have special interest for finding solutions.
The next three days are devoted to brainstorming, modelling and solving the problems. Participants are free to apply their expertise to any of the projects. Concurrently with the workshop a series of lectures will be run providing wider background material on computational research topics related to the problems.
On the last day, the progress and recommended routes forward are presented. Reports on the problems and the achieved progress are produced within two months after the meeting.
