Research stay in Gijón

15 Mai 2023

In the week from 8 to 12 May 2023, Thomas Apel was a guest in Gijón (Spain) hosted by Mariano Mateos, a renowned specialist in discretisation methods for optimisation problems with partial differential equations.

The stay was a continuation of a long-standing research collaboration, which has already led to three joint scientific papers, and which will now lead to another publication, together with our colleague Arnd Rösch from Duisburg. The exciting question in the current studies is to what extent different assumptions in previous studies can be omitted. Sometimes the result is still valid and it should be proven, but sometimes completely new effects become possible.

Thomas Apel also gave a lecture at the research colloquium of the Facultad de Ciencias entitled "The maximal angle condition for finite elements".

At this point, we would like to thank once again for the hospitality.
