Wavelet and Tensor Methods for Partial Differential Equations


The goal of this conference is to bring together experts from the fi elds of wavelet approximation methods, low-rank tensor techniques, nonlinear approximation, and from quantum chemistry to exchange the most recent results and foster understanding and collaboration on the broad intersection of these fi elds.

The conference is dedicated to Reinhold Schneider on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Reinhold Schneider is a leading expert in adaptive and hierarchical methods for the solution of high dimensional PDEs and in particular for wavelet, sparse grid and tensor product approximation.

Wavelet Theorem

The conference will feature a list of internationally highly renowned experts, who have a connection to Reinhold Schneiders research in the fields of wavelets and tensor approximation. The conference will take place from May 3-5, 2017, at TU Berlin.

The conference is organised by Helmut Harbrecht, Gitta Kutyniok, Philipp Petersen, and André Uschmajew.
