Welcome to the Web Page of Ludovic Martaud

picture done by Jeremy Simonnet I am graduated from Ecole Centrale Paris and University of Nantes. I done my PhD Thesis under the supervision of Christophe Berthon and Mehdi Badsi at the Laboratoire de Mathématiques Jean Leray at Nantes. My thesis was funded by a contract doctoral handicap. I am currently postdoctoral researcher at Inria of Rennes university.
  • The full text of my PhD Thesis is available here.
  • My curriculum vitae (french version) can be downloaded here.

Research interest

My fields of research are systems of conservation laws and their numerical approximations. In particular,

  • High order finite volume schemes
  • Discrete entropy inequalities
  • Well-balanced schemes

Second-order approximation of the compressible Euler equations.
