Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods have attracted considerable attention in computational science and engineering community because they possess a number of desirable properties for solving partial differential equations such as local conservation, high-order accuracy, easy parallelization, and enabling adaptivity, to name a few. For these reasons, they have been used to solve various practical problems including aero-acoustics, gas dynamics, magneto-hydrodynamics, oceanography, reservoir simulation, turbo-machinery, turbulent flows, reactive flows, porous media, and other problems with multi-physical interactions and multiple scales.

The speakers in this minisymposium will address theoretical and computational issues such as stability, optimal order convergence, sparse discretization, parallel implementation, (hp)-adaptivity, application of the methods to difficult and large-scale problems, efficient implementations, etc.
