This workshop focuses on the applications of the Discrete Duality Finite Volume (DDFV for short) method first developed for anisotropic elliptic problems on general meshes. DDFV methods have been introduced in the late 90’s to approximate linear elliptic problems on general meshes. The method has been extended to a wide range of applications:

  • nonlinear elliptic problems 
  • convection-diffusion problems
  • Stokes problems
  • Navier Stokes problems
  • Peaceman model
  • Maxwell problems
  • level-set problems
  • hyperbolic problems
  • Cahn-Hilliard problems …

The good properties of DDFV have been extensively tested in the benchmarks 2D, 3D and NS.  The DDFV technique has now been applied in many applications in biology like image smoothing or edge detection or cell migration or neuroscience, in the design of semi-conductor devices, weather forecast and to mathematical finance.

This workshop will be the occasion for the DDFV community to gather and investigate new potential application areas.
