This publication gathers a set of refereed articles containing unique effects reporting the hot contributions of the lectures and communications provided on the unfastened Boundary difficulties convention that came about on the college of Coimbra, Portugal, from June 7 to twelve, 2005 (FBP2005). They care for the maths of a extensive category of versions and difficulties concerning nonlinear partial differential equations coming up in physics, engineering, biology and finance. one of the major issues, the talks thought of loose boundary difficulties in biomedicine, in porous media, in thermodynamic modeling, in fluid mechanics, in snapshot processing, in monetary arithmetic or in computations for inter-scale difficulties. The mathematical research and effective homes of strategies and interfaces in loose boundary difficulties were an energetic topic within the final 3 a long time and their mathematical realizing is still a huge interdisciplinary instrument for the medical purposes, on one hand, and an intrinsic element of the present improvement of numerous vital mathematical disciplines.
