Presentation – www.ime.uerj.br/cfl80
This congress celebrates the benchmark article published by Courant,Friedrichs and Lewy in 1928 and which redefined all numerical algorithms drawn to deal with PDE's.
It aims looking both at the development such algorithms went through during these 80 years and at the problems we will deal with in future years.
Besides lectures delivered by invited speakers, we will have several panels where these topics will be thoroughly discussed.
