The critical role of geometry in the effective use of high-order methods is now well-recognized. When coupled with unstructured discretizations, they provide accurate solutions for a wide range of problems in computational mechanics involving complex real-world geometries.
This mini-symposium intends to discuss recent advances in high-order unstructured methods with careful consideration of the role and impact of geometry in such approaches. Suggested topics of interest include, but are not limited to, high-order basis and discretization methods, efficient quadrature, non-uniform and/or anisotropic setting, curvilinear mesh representation, generation and adaptation, energy efficiency of high-order methods, and application of such approaches to different applications.
