June 24-25: Mini-course

The mini-course is intended to familiarise students and staff in both computational mathematics and plasma physics with numerical methods relevant to the workshop. It is also helpful as a recap for mathematicians, and an opportunity for physicist to understand the underlying mathematics of the relevant numerical codes.

June 26-27: Workshop

In the workshop, plasma physicists will describe unsolved or difficult computational plasma physics problems they have encountered in their work. Mathematicians will present potential applications of their work.
