Presentation by Pierre-Louis LIONS
Académie des Sciences, France
The goal of this lecture is to illustrate how mathematics interact with other sciences in the context of numerical simulations and modelling in order to solve. We first present several examples of such interactions for industrial and engineering sciences applications. We next discuss modelling issues and conclude by a brief illustration of the role of some branches of marthematics.
