A couple of weeks ago, from 15th to 19th March, I participated in the virtual annual meeting of the German Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (GAMM). For me this meeting was the first time I presented my work to an audience of applied mathematicians with a broad background and no inherent interest in quantum chemistry. With only 15 minutes for my talk in the "scientific computing" track preparing the material was quite a challenge. I hope I still managed to convey the main ideas of our recently published LDOS preconditioner in a broadly accessible way. My slides are attached below.
