SIAM Southeastern Atlantic Section Annual Meeting
March 25-March 26, 2023

Hosted by Department of Mathematics, Virginia Tech

The 45th annual meeting of the SIAM Southeastern Atlantic Section will be hosted at Virginia Tech. The meeting will take place on March 25-26, 2023, and will contain the usual combination of plenary talks, minisymposia sessions, and contributed talks and posters.

Mini-symposium 11: Issues for Partial Differential Equations with Fractional Derivatives, Interface, and other Features

Organizers: Slimane Adjerid, Virginia Tech

Yiqun Li, University of South Carolina

Tao Lin, Virginia Tech

Hong Wang, University of South Carolina

MS description: In many modern problems, material properties may suffer from abrupt changes due to internal/external reasons, which results in jump discontinuities of the coefficients in their governing equations. This leads to interface problems. Similarly, when the material properties demonstrate strong heterogeneity, the corresponding problems may exhibit nonlocal effects, leading to fractional/nonlocal models. The aim of this minisymposium is to discuss the recent development in modeling, simulation, application, and analysis in these fields.
