The research project EOLIS — Efficient Off-Line Numerical Strategies for Multi-Query Problems —, formed by researchers and students from the IPES and NUMA Research Groups at LNCC, and coordinated in Brazil by Frédéric Valentin, was selected in the new Math-Amsud 2020 call. STIC-AmSud and Math-AmSud are regional cooperation programs between France, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. The objective is to implement joint projects and strengthen collaboration in the areas of Science and Information and Communication Technology, in the first, and in Mathematics, in the second. The approved projects last two years and involve at least two South American countries and one or more teams of French scientists.
The EOLIS project will receive funding from CAPES during the period 2021-2022, including post-graduate and post-doctoral scholarships. International collaboration involves INRIA from France, Universidad de Concepción and Universidad Católica de la Santísima Concepción from Chile, in addition to LNCC.
"The EOLIS project aims to develop new high-performance numerical and computational algorithms for the resolution of physical / biological models, which require a huge range of computational simulations due to large variations in the model data. A typical application is the numerical approximation of model solutions based on stochastic differential equations. This project strengthens the cooperation between leading research groups in scientific computing in France, Chile and Brazil and constitutes a natural development of the PHOTOM project ( Math-Amsud 2018-2020). ", emphasizes Frédéric Valentin.
