My talk from ESCO 2016

I’m currently in Plzen (Czech Republic) having a good time at the ESCO 2016 conference. In my talk on the subject of Implementing Mathematics: Domain-Specific Languages and Automated Computing, I gave an overview of FEniCS and talked about how we’re doing things all wrong by trying to implement clever algorithms to obfuscate mathematics into long strings of computer code.


As a side note, the pilsner here in Plzen is quite alright.

His research interests are adaptive finite element methods, high-level automating software systems for solution of PDE, domain-specific languages and compilers in scientific computing, augmented and virtual reality, and applications in biomedicine, general relativity, architecture, and geoinformation; in particular the combination of modeling, simulation and visualization to create Digital Twins of physical systems. Logg is Director of the Digital Twin Cities Centre at Chalmers, a Vinnova Competence Centre devoted to the study and development of the Digital Twin concept for city modeling and simulation. Logg is co-founder and initial developer of the FEniCS Project, a leading open-source software for automated solution of PDE. He works part-time as scientific advisor to Fraunhofer-Chalmers Centre.
