Fractional PDEs: Control, Applications, and Beyond

Abstract: Fractional calculus and its application to anomalous transport has recently received a tremendous amount of attention. In these studies, the anomalous transport (of charge, tracers, fluid, etc.) is presumed attributable to long-range correlations of material properties within an inherently complex, and in some cases self-similar, conducting medium. Rather than considering an exquisitely discretized (and computationally explosive) representation of the medium, the complex and spatially correlated heterogeneity is represented through reformulation of the PDE governing the relevant transport physics such that its coefficients are, instead, smooth but paired with fractional-order space derivatives.

This talk will give an introduction to fractional diffusion. We will describe how to incorporate nonhomogeneous boundary conditions in fractional PDEs. We will cover from linear to quasilinear fractional PDEs and fractional elliptic variational inequalities. Several optimal control strategies will be discussed, including optimization under uncertainty. We will conclude the talk with a new approach that allows the fractional exponent to be spatially dependent. This has enabled us to define novel Sobolev spaces and their trace spaces. Numerical evidence suggests that such spaces are useful in image processing.

With this course, we aim at providing the participants with the basics of lichen biology and ecology, biomonitoring and data analysis methods to allow the use of lichens for the interpretation of the environmental conditions and the development of a responsible scientific-based

XXII Symposium of Cryptogamic Botany

This biennial symposium will gather experts on fungi, algae, lichens,  bryophytes and ferns to discuss up-to-date science on cryptogamic systematics, physiology and ecophysiology, application and technology, and urban, tropical and global change ecology.

15th European Ecological Federation (EEF) Congress

The overarching theme of this conference, Embedding Ecology in Sustainable Development Goals, is intended to promote discussions and interactions on how to integrate basic and applied ecological research, and their trans-disciplinarily impacts, for the eff

Young scientists in the Marine Natural Products (MNP) field from all over the world are especially encouraged to participate.

Protolang 6

The Protolang conference series creates an interdisciplinary platform for scholarly discussion on the origins of symbolic communication distinctive of human beings.

We welcome scholars to participate in a one-day workshop on how language has been defined and approached differentially throughout history within philosophical, linguistic, psychological, and socio-anthropological schools of thought.

No âmbito das comemorações do IYPT2019, o Departamento de Química e Bioquímica de Ciências ULisboa convida as escolas secundárias a participar num Congresso sob o tema “O que existe no meu mundo” que irá englobar comunicações orais ou em painel e quizzes

A conferência pretende ser um ponto de encontro para investigadores, ativistas, gestores públicos e empreendedores envolvidos com temas de economia social e solidária, gestão dos bens comuns e novos movimentos sociais em diferentes regiões e países do mundo.
