Location Kingston University, London, UK

The LMS Minisymposium
This minisymposium will examine advanced decomposition methods with respect to discretisation for evolution equations. Typically the equation being considered here is systems of parabolic equations with applications to transport phenomena, heat transfer models, micro heat transfer problems, financial and economic problems, and medical applications. The decomposition to be considered includes three different aspects, which include (1) spatial decomposition in the form of decoupling of the spatial axes, (2) temporal decomposition induced by transformation and Lie group, and (3) decomposition within micro-scale computational domains. All decomposition algorithms exploited at this minisymposium will be tested against modern parallel or distributed computer architectures in order to ensure efficient use of their computational capabilities.

This LMS minisymposium will be operated under the auspices of the 12th International Symposium on Distributed Computing and Applications to Business, Engineering, and Sciences (DCABES2013) (See also and held at the same venue at Kingston University, 2-4 September 2013. The local organizer for DCABES2013 is Prof. Souheil Khaddaj, Faculty of Science, Engineering and Compuitng, Penrhyn Road, Kingston upon Thames, Surrey KT1 2EE.

The programme of this LMS meeting consists of invited talks, contributed talks, a poster session, short PhD project presentations, and a panel session on the third day. The panel session will be held on day three in the morning, consisting of all invited speakers as the panel members, on the future trend of decomposition techniques and their numerical properties on parallel and distributed computing environments.
