One of the reasons for this development is the fact that meshfree discretizations and particle models are often better suited to cope with geometric changes of the domain of interest, e.g. free surfaces and large deformations, than classical discretization techniques such as finite differences, finite elements or finite volumes. Another obvious advantage of meshfree discretizations is of course their independence of a mesh. Mesh generation is still the most time consuming part of any mesh based numerical simulation. Since meshfree discretization techniques are based only on a set of independent points these costs of mesh generation are eliminated. Finally, the coupling of particle models to continuous models gained enormous interest in recent years from a theoretical as well as from a practical point of view. Among the most prominent meshfree discretization techniques are: stochastic particle models, smoothed particle hydrodynamics, reproducing kernel particle methods, partition of unity methods, radial basis functions, vortex methods. The aim of the workshop is to bring together european and american researchers from different fields-inside and outside mathematics-not only to strengthen the mathematical understanding and analysis of meshfree discretizations but also to promote the exchange of ideas on their implementation and application. Topics of interest in the workshop are: analysis of meshfree methods, implementational issues of meshfree methods, coupling of particle models to continuous models, industrial applications of meshfree methods. The four day workshop program will consist of invited lectures, contributed papers and poster sessions. If you are interested in contributing to this workshop, please submit an abstract of about 300 words by e-mail to the contact address mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1, 2001.
