MS13 - Discontinuous dynamical systems: theory and numerical methods

Organized by: Luciano Lopez and Cinzia Elia

Models are often described by discontinuous ODEs or discontinuous dynamical systems. The discontinuity can occur in the solution (impact systems) or in the vector field of the differential system (Filippov systems). Filippv differential systems may show solutions which cross or slide one or more discontinuous surfaces. Several questions, both of theoretical and numerical type, arise in the mathematical treatment of such problems as the loss of uniqueness of the solution or the loss of accuracy of standard numerical schemes for ODEs. In this minisymposium we would discuss these aspects of discontinuous ODEs.
