Numerical Analysis of Circuit Simulation and its Generalizations

The numerical techniques used in analog circuit simulation motivates
interesting work in numerical analysis. The speakers in this minisymposium will
discuss some of the recent work that has grown out of the circuit simulation
problem. They will discuss application of time-stepping techniques used for
circuits to the problem of modeling electrical activity in cardiac tissue,
numerical techniques that have resulted from the search for more efficient
circuit simulation including an overview of convergence enhancements for Newton's
method and waveform techniques, and a software environment that can automatically
generate a simulator for problems that can be formulated as a generalized circuit
problem.
