2nd SRP NUPUS Summer School 2017 (co-organized) "Upscaling Techniques for Mathematical Models Involving Multiple Scales"

This 4-day Summer School

"Upscaling techniques for mathematical models involving multiple scales"

is organised at Hasselt University. The course is addressed to PhD students and postdoctoral researchers working on fluid-mechanics, chemical and mechanical engineering as well as geo-sciences, informatics or mathematics. It requires the standard mathematical background (calculus, differential equations, numerical methods) as taught at undergraduate/MSc level.

Date: Monday, 26th June to Thursday, 29th June 2017

Place: Hasselt University, Campus Hasselt, Room FR 1.01 (Faculty of Law)

Speakers: Prof. Knut-Andreas Lie (SINTEF Oslo and Norwegian University of Science and Technology Norway), Prof. Sorin Pop (Computational Mathematics Group, Hasselt University, Belgium)

Content of Lectures: The course presents basic mathematical techniques for upscaling of models posed in complex domains, or involving highly oscillatory characteristics. Such problems appear as mathematical models for many real-world applications. Typical examples in this sense are the flow, diffusion, reaction and adsorption in porous media and are encountered e.g. in the sub-surface, chemical reactors, building materials, or biological tissues. The series of lectures provide appropriate techniques for a rational derivation of macro-scale models (involving effective coefficients and equations) starting from the micro scale models (posed in complex media, or involving rapidly changing characteristics).

A particular emphasis is on asymptotic and numerical homogenization. In the first instance, these techniques are applied to relevant mathematical models describing diffusion in layered and perforated media; diffusion, convection, reaction and adsorption in media with a complex microstructure; fluid flow through porous media (Darcy law). Next, more complex situations as encountered e.g. in enhanced oil recovery will be considered.
