Overall objectives

To become more specific, the project IPSO aims at finding and implementing new structure-preserving schemes and at understanding the behavior of existing ones for the following type of problems:

Although the field of application of the ideas contained in geometric integration is extremely wide (e.g. robotics, astronomy, simulation of vehicle dynamics, biomechanical modeling, biomolecular dynamics, geodynamics, chemistry...), IPSO will mainly concentrate on applications for molecular dynamics simulation and laser simulation:
