ModCompShock - Modelling and Computation of Shocks and Interfaces:

The project ModCompShock (Modelling and Computation of Shocks and Interfaces) has been funded by the European Union under the Horizon2020 Action - EU Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) and provides an international and highly visible framework covering a wide range of conceptual expertise.

It focuses on the development of innovative mathematical methods and computational techniques in the general area of nonlinear hyperbolic and convection dominated partial differential equations. This network is focused on the training of young researchers (ESRs) in the general area of nonlinear hyperbolic and convection dominated PDEs (HCD-PDEs) with emphasis on innovative modelling and computational methods.

The research program of this project will be centered in a prominent (in terms of both history and importance) field, that is placed at the very forefront of modern Computational and Applied Mathematics. For more information on the project and the network look at the website

The scientific network is based on research groups at:

University of Sussex (Project Coordinator)
Universite Pierre et Marie Curie - Paris 6
Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen
Universita degli Studi di Catania
Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas
Università degli Studi dell'Aquila (D.Donatelli local coordinator)
Universidad de Malaga
Universitetet i Oslo

The team of the L'Aquila node (Italy) is composed by researchers of the Department of Information Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics (DISIM) and of the Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI), L'Aquila. The main research topics of the team are: hyperbolic systems, mathematical modeling of fluid dynamical type, dispersive diffusive compressible fluids, quantum hydrodynamics,dispersive shock waves, time-stepping schemes, scientific computing, parallel numerical linear algebra.
