Taylor Model Methods V


Following the tradition of the Taylor Model Methods Workshops in Miami and Boca Raton, we are organizing the fifth meeting in this series. It is scheduled to take place 20-23 May 2008 at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Science in Toronto, Canada. The meeting is jointly sponsored by the Fields Institute, University of Toronto, and Michigan State University and the US Department of Energy. There is no registration fee, but charges for the excursion to Niagara Falls (see below) will be collected on site from those who wish to participate.

Deadlines and Dates

Registration: May 15, 2008
Abstract Uploading: April 30, 2008
Meeting: May 20-23, 2008
Paper Submission: July 1, 2008

Note that while the logistics of the Fields Institute allows for deadlines very close to the meeting, we strongly encourage registration, even tentative, at an early time for planning purposes.


  • High-Order Methods
  • Verification & Taylor Models
  • Automatic Differentiation
  • Differential Algebraic Tools

and their use for

  • ODE and PDE solvers
  • Dynamical Systems
  • Global Optimization
  • Constraint Satisfaction
  • Beam Physics
  • Solar System Dynamics


The refereed proceedings of TM08 will be published in the Communications of the Fields Institute, which are published in collaboration with the American Mathematical Society.
Papers are due four weeks after the meeting and should be prepared based on the information and author's guide at


We are planning a half day trip to Niagara Falls. Transportation for the 90 minute drive will be arranged locally. The Falls can be viewed from spectacular viewing terraces, and there are also opportunities to take a boat ride to the bottom of the falls and to take walking tours directly behind them. It is also possible to walk across a bridge high over the river, and to temporarily enter the US side. (Note that this requires appropriate visa and immigration status) The excursion will conclude with dinner at a nice restaurant along the river.
