9th Singular Days

17-20 September, 2019


The Institute of Mathematics of the University of Kassel is happy to be the host of the 9th Singular Days. The workshop focuses on the mathematical and numerical analysis of PDEs with singularities in the form of irregular domains and small or nonsmooth model parameters. Typical applications include e.g. Maxwell equations, propagation of fracture or geometric irregularities like thin layers.

Moreover, a mini-course on Elliptic PDEs on domains with corners for students, postdocs and anyone interested in the subject, will be delivered by G. Sweers (Köln). Apart from the main talks, there will be contributed talks and a poster session.


Main Speakers

  • Susanne C. Brenner, Louisiana State University
  • Patrick Ciarlet, ENSTA ParisTech
  • Monique Dauge, Université de Rennes 1
  • Jürgen Roßmann, Universität Rostock
  • Zohar Yosibash, Tel Aviv University


The workshop will take place at the Institute of Mathematics at the University of Kassel (see Location) and will begin on Tuesday the 17th of September at 14:00 (registration starts at 11:30). It will end on Friday the 20th of September at 12:00.

Dinner is planned on Wednesday the 18th at 19:00 at the restaurant Brauhaus Zum Rammelsberg, Kassel.
