__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.

There is a silent revolution happening in the world of education. The advancement of technology is allowing us to reach heretofore untouched regions of the world. The educational and pedagogical landscape too is not untouched by such rapid advancement of technology both in terms of challenges and opportunities. On one hand, when technological tools such as Moodle, Coursera and Edunet allow us to reach not only large student bodies, but also students located in geographically disparate locations, the challenges of teaching and evaluating such large number of students are numerous as well. In this symposium, papers that are written about how novel technology is effectively used to address the challenges of the new world, would be reviewed and accepted if found suitable.

The theoretical, numerical and computational analysis of dynamical systems and their applications to the analysis of problems coming from civil, mechanical, electrical, etc. engineering and related subject fields, their formal verification and practical validation of relevant approaches constitute the unifying idea of this symposium, whose significance should be seen just in the confrontation of different approaches and intensification of multidisciplinary cooperation of experts (mathematicians, physicists, engineers, ...). Leaving nice model cases and seeing the real-world problems, we come to serious difficulties a) in the formal analysis of existence, uniqueness, stability, etc. of solutions, b) in the convergence of sequences of approximate solutions, as well as c) in the design of sufficiently robust and inexpensive algorithms for direct, sensitivity and inverse problems.

The unification approaches addressed to the continuous and discrete analysis, namely to the study of integral, differential, difference, etc. equations from engineering practice, both deterministic and stochastic ones, including their formulation on time scales, is needed: the theoretical problems include e.g. i) stability and observability of dynamical systems on time scales, their qualitative and quantitative analysis, ii) filtration of inner states of such systems and iii) identification of systems of orthogonal functions. The scope of applications is not limited, but both theoretical and computational predictions of mechanical, thermal, etc. behaviour of advanced materials and structures and control of related technologies, up to the development of modelling and simulation software tools, are welcome.
