The Summer school on Numerical Analysis of nonlinear PDEs will take place in Leipzig in July 2023.

Speakers: Sören Bartels (U Freiburg) and Max Jensen (UCL, London)

Dates: 19.-21. July 2023 (pre-school on 18.07.2023)

Location: U Leipzig, Felix-Klein-Hörsaal

Organizers: Dietmar Gallistl (U Jena), Mira Schedensack (U Leipzig)


The target audience are advanced Master students, doctoral students, and postdocs with basic knowledge on elliptic PDEs and finite element analysis. We offer a brief refresher course (pre-school) on the day before the actual summer school starts.

Registration: Registration is free but mandatory. Please write an e-mail to NA-summerschool-2023(at) until 01. July 2023 to register for the event.

The venue is located in the city centre with many hotels within walking distance.

The thematic focus of the summer school is on the numerical analysis of nonlinear, mainly stationary, partial differential equations. The speakers will present lectures on the following topics:

Sören Bartels:
Error estimates for finite element discretizations of nonsmooth minimization problems

Max Jensen:
Discretization of fully nonlinear elliptic PDEs



All lectures will take place at the University of Leipzig in the lecture hall called Felix-Klein-Hörsaal. The address is

Augustusplatz 10-11
04109 Leipzig

The building is called "Paulinum". The lecture hall is in the 5th floor.
