Track Description

Meshfree methods are a hot topic in computational sciences and numerical mathematics.

Standard computational methods used across many application fields require tessellation in 2D or 3D using triangular or tetrahedral meshes. Tessellation itself is computationally expensive especially in higher dimensions and the result of that computation is again discrete, and physical phenomena are not smoothly interpolated. The meshfree methods are especially convenient for scattered data processing as they do not require tessellation. They are used not only for interpolation and approximation, but also for solution of partial and ordinary differential equations, etc.
Meshfree methods are scalable to higher dimensions and offer smooth final representation and they lead to a solution of a system of linear equations, in general.

This ICCS 2020 workshop is intended to explore broad computational applicability of the Meshfree methods especially based on Radial Basis Functions across many areas, including theoretical and mathematical aspects of the meshfree methods.
The aim is also to connect latest theoretical research results with possible computational applications, i.e. put together theory and applications in computational sciences.

The accepted and presented papers are expected to be published in the ICCS 2020 conference proceedings.
