Short Course on Advanced Numerical Methods for Hyperbolic Equations

Lecturers: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Dumbser and Dr. Elena Gaburro
Dep. Civil and Environmental Engineering, Lab. Applied Mathematics, University of Trento, Italy.

Dates: From Monday 10th to Friday 14th of February 2020 (36 hours).

Venue: University of Trento, Via Mesiano, 77, I-38123 Trento, Italy.

Course material: Download here.


Shu-Osher The short course on advanced numerical methods consists of a structured intensive one-week programme of 36 hours of theoretical lectures and computer laboratory exercises on advanced numerical methods for hyperbolic partial differential equations with applications in engineering and science.

The course covers Finite Volume methods, the exact and approximate solution of the Riemann problem, second order TVD methods, higher order ENO, WENO and Discontinuous Galerkin methods, as well as the discretization of non-conservative problems.
Special emphasis is put also on numerical methods that are able to handle complex geometries.
In particular, unstructured Finite Volume and Discontinuous Galerkin schemes as well as mesh-free particle methods are presented.

The lectures on the theory will be supplemented with laboratory-based computer exercises to provide hands-on experience to all participants on the practical aspects of numerical methods for hyperbolic problems and applications using MATLAB programs specially designed for the course.

The course is primarily designed for PhD students and post-doctoral researchers in applied mathematics, engineering, physics, computer science and other scientific disciplines. The course may also be of interest to senior researchers in industry and research laboratories, as well as to senior academics.


Students and post-docs: € 500
Senior academics and others: € 1000

The fees (free of “VAT tax” as art. 10 DPR 633/72) cover lectures, laboratory exercises, lecturing material and demonstration programs in MATLAB.
Furthermore, the course fee includes the coffee breaks and one social event (dinner).

The historical city of Trento is situated in the autonomous Italian region of Trentino - Südtirol, 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.

You can find here some additional information about restaurants and public transportation in Trento.
