Welcome to the SPP 1962!

This is the webpage of the DFG priority programme on "Non-smooth and Complementarity-based Distributed Parameter Systems: Simulation and Hierarchical Optimization”

Upcoming Events

  • SPP1962 Annual Women’s Meeting

    Uni Würzburg, Jul 17-17, 2018

  • Summer School on Complementarity problems in Applied Mathematics: Modeling, Analysis, and Optimization

    TU Dortmund, Jul 30 - Aug 01, 2018 Complementarity problems and related non-smooth structures play an important role in various applications such as elastoplastic deformation or damage processes. The non-smoothness of such systems has a direct impact on its mathematical treatment, beginning from the analysis over numerical simulations to the optimization of such systems and processes. The summer school aims to illustrate these effects on applied mathematics as a whole. It is primarily intended for the doctoral and postdoctoral students of the DFG SPP1962, however other interested parties may also apply to register.

  • International Conference on Continuous Optimization (ICCOPT) 2019

    TU Berlin/WIAS, Aug 03-08, 2019
