9th - 10th July, 2012, University of Reading, UK

The organisers are grateful for financial support from the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), grant EP/F067798/1.

The University of Reading hosted the 3rd Mathmondes meeting from 9th - 10th July 2012 in the Mathematics Building on our Whiteknights campus. The aim of Mathmondes is to encourage interaction and collaboration between British and French researchers in the area of wave propagation. As such the programme consisted of a small number of talks, with the emphasis on informal discussions and networking.

The focus of the meeting was on high frequency wave propagation and scattering, particularly work across the interface of numerics and traditional asymptotics, and on waveguide problems, with a particular emphasis on open waveguides.

The meeting commenced at 10am on Monday 9th, with arrivals/registration from 9.30am in the Mathematics Common Room, and finished at 4pm on Tuesday 10th.
