• The Conference

    The sixth edition of the International Workshop on Analysis and Numerical Approximation of Singular Problems (IWANASP18) will take place in the Cittadella dei Musei, Piazza Arsenale 8 in Cagliari from September 4 to September 6, 2018.

    The aim of the conference is to bring together young researchers and leading scientists specialized in approximation tools for functions with singularities and numerical methods for singular integral equations with applications.

    New mathematical and computational developments should be presented on the following topics:

    1. Approximation of functions with singularities;
    2. Numerical methods for integrals of functions with singularities and for integral trasforms (linear and nonlinear);
    3. Mathematical methods for integral equations of first kind;
    4. Mathematical methods for integral equations of second kind with singular functions;
    5. Singular boundary integral equations;
    6. Applications: Integral equations in applied geophysics, optical fibers and image reconstruction.

  • Previous Meetings

    The first IWANASP took place at the Instituto Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon in 2004. The second meeting was organised by the Aegean University (Samos, Greece) in 2006 and after two years the third IWANASP (2008) was again held in Portugal in a town called Ericeira. In 2011 the conference was organised by Chester University (Chester, UK) and in 2015 the fifth IWANASP took place in Lagos, Portugal.
