PeC3 is a network of universities and scientists from Peru and Germany with the goal to foster research and education in scientific computing, applied and computational mathematics. The idea of PeC3 started in 2014 and was consolidated in the subsequent years with several summer and winter schools on numerical methods for partial differential equations at different universities in Peru and South America.
Applied mathematics and scientific computing with a focus on modeling, simulation and optimization are becoming more relevant and growing in importance worldwide. The numerical simulation and optimization are - in addition to the experiment - increasingly established in many scientific applications. This development has been accelerated in recent decades by the availability of high-performance computers and the associated basic mathematical research.
