Discrete Systems and Calculus of Variations

The workshop on Discrete Systems and Calculus of Variations takes place at the Technical University Munich, within the Collaborative Research Center "Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics".

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts in mathematical analysis and applied mathematics working from different perspectives on the interplay between discrete and continuum theories. The spirit of the meeting is to explore the most recent advances in the field in order to point out open problems and to foster active interdisciplinary research.

Date: Monday 7th to Friday 11th November 2022 

Location: Institute for Advanced Studies, Garching Forschungszentrum (Research Campus), north of Munich.

Registration closed on 30 October 2022.
