__Organizer:__ **Dr. Manoj Kumar, Associate Professor, Department of Mathematics, Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology Allahabad-India**

__E-mail:__ **manoj@mnnit.ac.in**

Many problems in science and engineering are reduced to a set of boundary value problems through a process of mathematical modeling such as problems in physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics etc. Sometimes it is possible to find an exact solution of a boundary value problem as a combination of elementary functions or as a trigonometric functions or power series. However, this classical mathematical approach for solving boundary value problems only works on a relatively small class of problems. In more realistic models, solutions of boundary value problems cannot be found explicitly in terms of known functions, and the alternative is to determine an approximate solution for given data through numerical computations. Due to this reason, different numerical methods have been developed in the literature for the solution of boundary value problems that includes Finite difference method, Finite element method, Finite volume method, Boundary element method and Spline methods etc. This mini-symposium aims, to present the new development of computational methods for solving boundary value problems.
