In the last five years the development of numerical methods for systems of hyperbolic conservation laws has advanced dramatically. This changed the concept of what is considered to be a solution. The first time ever since 1757 when Euler developed his equations for gas dynamics can one now show convergence of numerical solutions to solutions of these equations. Starting from basic knowledge in the field these new schemes are presented.

The series of lectures has to be seen in connection with the Workshop on Numerical Methods for Hyperbolic Conservation and Balance Laws and Applications 10-11 November 2017.



All are welcome

The activity is organised with the generosity of Dr Kennedy Y.H. Wong who supported the establishment of Dr Kennedy Y.H. Wong Distinguished Visiting Professorship Scheme to promote international academic exchange and strengthen HKBU status in the international academic community.
