Considerable advances in
numerical methods for partial differential equations have been
achieved since Harry Yserentant wrote his Habilitation thesis in 1984.
Starting from meanwhile classical multi-grid methods and domain
decomposition, subspace correction approaches have
revolutionized the efficient solution of partial differential
equations. Sparse grids and hierarchical tensor approximations have
paved the way towards the efficient solution of high-dimensional
elliptic problems with sufficient regularity, like the electronic
Schrödinger equation, and extensions to various nonlinear problems
are under way.
The aim of this workshop is to review these developments, to highlight some hot topics of current research and to discuss future perspectives.
