Subject: Algorithms for Approximation VI, UK, Aug/Sep 2009

The sixth in this series of UK conferences, focusing on application of
ideas from approximation theory for developing practical algorithms, will
take place from August 31 to September 4th 2009, in Ambleside in the Lake

This conference will have the theme of Complexity, in particular Tropical
Mathematics, Approximation Theory, Non-Linear and Non-Smooth Dynamics,
Model Reduction, and Wild Complexity, where statistics and model reduction
do not work so well. We will be fostering linkage between these emerging
areas, and classical approximation theory, such as orthogonal polynomials,
splines, wavelets, and radial basis functions.

There will be five keynote talks given by leaders in different directions in
complexity, including

Chris Budd (Bath)
Yannis Kevrekidis (Princeton)
Grigori Litvinov (University of Moscow)
Linda Petzold (Santa Barbara)

There will be themed minisymposia, related to the talks of the keynote

One of the main aims of the conference is to generate research projects
which will lead to grant applications for supporting teams of researchers.
