Title: Finite element methods and adaptive strategies for multiscale problems

Abstract: A large class of modeling problems in Physics and Engineering is of multiscale character, meaning that relevant physical processes act on vastly different length scales. A direct numerical treatment of problems exhibiting multiscale phenomena usually makes a full resolution of all scales necessary and leads to high computational costs. In this talk we give an introduction to the finite element method for solving partial differential equations and introduced the concept of (goal-oriented) adaptivity. We conclude by highlighting some results for time-harmonic Maxwell's equations with multiscale character.
