Fifth Workshop on Recent Advances on Spectral Methods and Related Applications
（October 9-12, 2015, Jiangsu Normal University）
There has been increasingg rowth in the analysis and applications of the spectral (element) methods. The main characteristic of spectral (element) methods is the use of high-order polynomials as basis functions, as compared to low-order piecewise polynomials in a finite element method. The main advantage of the spectral methods lies on the fact that the convergence of numerical solutions is exponential if the exact solution is smooth. While the classical spectral methods are limited to simple geometries, the development of the spectral element method allows to take advantages of the geometric flexibility of finite elements and the high accuracy of spectral methods. Undoubtedly the spectral (element) methods have become a major computational tool, especially when highly accurate solutionsare needed. The aim of this series of workshops is to bring together experts working onspectral and high order methods and their applications to exchange recent progress and to promote future research and collaborations.This is the fifth workshop in the serieson Spectral Methods and Their Applications, initially organized by Jie Shen (Purdue University&Xiamen University) and Chuanju Xu(Xiamen University).
