Minimum Residual & Least-Squares Finite Element Methods

Fourth Workshop

This workshop takes place from September 16th to September 18th, 2019. It aims to bring together global researchers working on Least-Squares Finite Element Methods, Discontinuous Petrov Galerkin Methods, and other emerging methods built around residual minimization properties.

It is the fourth in a series of workshops with the same goal. The first workshop in this series was held in Austin, Texas, in 2013. The second workshop was held in Delft, The Netherlands, in 2015. The third edition, organized under the umbrella of USACM (United States Association for Computational Mechanics) Workshops, was held at Portland State University, Oregon, USA.
