Symposium1: Numerical Simulation and Visual Analytics of Nonlinear Problems

OrganizerAtsushi Kamitani (Yamagata University)
Co-organizerSatoshi Tanaka (Ritsumeikan Univ.), Koji Koyamada (Kyoto Univ.), and Seiichi Koshizuka (Univ. Tokyo)
ObjectiveBoth the numerical simulation and the visual analytics have played an important role in the analysis of nonlinear problems arising in a wide variety of fields in science and engineering. For example, in solid-state physics, fusion engineering, and fluid dynamics, a number of high-performance numerical techniques have been proposed for solving nonlinear partial differential equations and they have contributed to the remarkable development of these fields. Moreover, visual analytics of complicated/large-sized data is indispensable for the analysis of the results obtained in numerical simulations. In this sense, the numerical simulation and the visualization should work closely together in the analysis of nonlinear problems. The aim of this symposium is to provide a forum for exchanging ideas and discussing recent developments in the numerical simulation and the visual analytics of nonlinear problems.
