Abstract: This minisymposium focuses on complex problems arising from geophysical flows and their numerical simulations. The models are typically governed by hyperbolic systems of conservation and balance laws, which are difficult to be solved numerically due to the presence of (possibly singular) geometric source terms, nonconservative exchange terms as well as multiscale phenomena in singular limit cases. These may lead to the loss of hyperbolicity, nonlinear resonance, very complicated wave structures and, as a result, to appearance of spurious oscillations and slow convergence of numerical methods. Therefore accurate modeling and development of robust, highly accurate and efficient numerical methods for these systems is a very important and challenging task.

The organizers of the minisymposium are: Alina Chertock, Alex Kurganov and Maria Lukacova-Medvidova
