July 18-21, 2017
The Institute of Computational Science (ICS) at the University of Lugano announces an intensive course  from July 18th to 21th in Lugano, Switzerland.
The summer school is supported and organized by the Swiss Graduate School FOMICS - "Foundations in Mathematics and Informatics for Computer Simulations in Science and Engineering”, which is located at ICS.
 
Speaker
Dr. Carlo Garoni (INdAM Marie-Curie fellow)
 
Description of the course

The theory of Generalized Locally Toeplitz (GLT) sequences was developed in order to solve a specific application problem, namely the problem of computing/analyzing the spectral distribution of matrices arising from the numerical discretization of Differential Equations (DEs). A final goal of this spectral analysis is the design of efficient numerical methods for computing the related numerical solutions. The purpose of this course is to introduce the reader to the theory of GLT sequences and to present some of its applications to the computation of the spectral distribution of DE discretization matrices. The course will mainly focus on the latter applications, whereas the theory will be presented in a self-contained tool-kit fashion, without entering into technical details.
