3rd International Workshop Reduced Basis, POD and PGD Model Reduction Techniques

Report on the 3rd International Workshop Reduced Basis, POD and PGD Model Reduction Techniques

École Normale Supérieure de Cachan, France - November 4-5-6, 2015


After Cachan 2011 and Blois 2013, Cachan 2015 was devoted to recent advances in model reduction techniques and their potential impact in computational and prediction sciences, especially (but not only) in mechanical engineering. Practical focus was on recent developments in Reduced Basis (RB) approaches, Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) and Proper Generalized Decomposition (PGD) methods for the numerical resolution of models involving partial differential equations. RB, POD, PGD and other model reduction methods are leading to a new generation of high-performance computational tools which provide solutions to engineering problems which are inaccessible to standard codes based on classical and well-established numerical techniques. This is a true breakthrough with a potential gain of several orders of magnitude.
The workshop organized by Francisco Chinesta and Pierre Ladeveze hosted a total of 99 attendees from Europe, US and Asia, including both mechanicians, applied mathematicians and engineers. The two days and half meeting featured 10 keynotes, 30 Technical Point oral presentations and a Poster, Wine and Cheese evening session (no parallel session). The keynote lecturers were F. Chinesta, A. Cohen, Ch.


Farhat, P. Ladeveze, Y.Maday, H.Matthies, D. Mazon, A. Quarteroni, S. Reese and K.Wilcox.
