Friday, 22 February 2019, 3 p.m. (sharp),

Dr. Andrea Bressan, University of Oslo

at the conference room of IMATI-CNR in Pavia, will give a lecture titled:

n-width and polynomial splines

as part of the Applied Mathematics Seminar (IMATI-CNR e Dipartimento di Matematica, Pavia).

At the end a refreshment will be organized.


Abstract. The seminar will consists of a quick overview of approximation results for univariate polynomial splines. After a short introduction of n-width theory and of the existence of “optimal” spline spaces the approximation estimates using splines and FEM spaces will be compared.
