Detailed program :
 Gabriele Ciaramella Classical Schwarz Methods
In this lecture, classical Schwarz methods are introduced and their convergence behavior discussed.
Using a Fourier analysis the main convergence properties of these methods are presented.
Moreover, some examples of modern applications of classical Schwarz methods are discussed underlying
their unusual scalability in certain situations.
If time permits, further classical techniques for convergence analysis, like maximum principle and
orthogonal projection, will be treated.
 Martin J. Gander Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Domain Decomposition Methods.
I will first give an overview of classical domain decomposition
methods of Schwarz, DirichletNeumann and NeumannNeumann type. I
will then present the extension of these methods to time dependent
problems, which leads to waveform relaxation variants of these
methods. I will finally explain the difference between homogeneous
and heterogeneous domain decomposition methods, and define two
classes of heterogeneous domain decomposition problems.
 Laurence Halpern Schwarz waveform relaxation and best approximation problem.
For the heat equation, introduce rapidly the algorithm, give the behavior over long and short time intervals.
Then define the complex best approximation problem in $\mathbb{P}_n$, and give details on the existence, uniqueness and approximation results, for the real and complex problems.
I will show application to Robin and Ventcell transmission conditions.
 Felix Kwok DirichletNeumann and NeumannNeumann Methods.
In this lecture, we introduce the DirichletNeumann (DN) and NeumannNeumann (NN) methods, which are naturally formulated on nonoverlapping domain decompositions. We will discuss their convergence behaviour on two subdomains, first in 1D, then in 2D using Fourier techniques seen in Lecture 1. The influence of geometry and relaxation parameters will be discussed. If time
permits, we will explain how these methods can be extended to yield FETI and BDDC methods, which are very powerful methods that can be used for problems with complicated geometries.
 Veronique Martin Heterogeneous Methods for Homogeneous Problems.
In this talk we consider domain decomposition methods where different models are solved in different subdomains: we want to approximate a homogeneous object with different approximations
with the aim to reduce the global cost.
We will present a method based on the factorization of the operator, starting with a simple one dimensional case for advection reaction diffusion, then we will generalize to the spacetime equation.
 Roland Masson Heterogeneous Methods for drying problems.
Robin Robin domain decomposition methods are discussed to solve the nonlinear coupling between liquid gas Darcy and free gas flow and transport.
This type of drying models is of interest in various applications ranging from food processing, wood or paper production, salinization of agricultural land,
prediction of convective heat and moisture transfer at exterior building surfaces, to the study of the mass and energy exchanges at
the interface between a nuclear waste disposal and the ventilation galleries.
 Tommaso Vanzan Heterogeneous domain decomposition methods
The aim of the lecture is to introduce optimized Schwarz methods (OSM) which,
due to their favorable convergence properties in the absence of overlap and their
capability to take physical properties at the interfaces into account, are natural
domain decomposition methods for heterogeneous problems. We will use mainly
the StokesDarcy coupling as a model problem to present OSM and to investigate
the limit of the classical approach used to optimize the parameters.
