This workshop will focus on the mathematical problems which arise in the management of air quality. Presently mathematical modeling is an integral part of air quality research and management programs. Present air quality models involve complex and coupled phenomena including coupled transport, chemistry, radiative, and mass transfer process. These three dimensional models pose great mathematical challenges, because they involve complex physical domains, highly stiff sets of equations, and large number of grids. In this workshop the focus will be on various aspects of air quality modeling, related to improving the computational quality and extended uses of air quality modeling, which can only be accomplished if significant advances are made in the models. Topics to be discussed include new techniques for solutions of stiff ODEs, new methods for solving the governing PDEs including multigrid and irregular grids; sensitivity analysis tools including automatic differentiation, and optimization and inverse modeling applications. Parallel computing, compiler tools, and visualization will also be discussed. The workshop will bring together experts in modeling, analysis, and numerical analysis.
