Pattern Theory Seminar - From Pixels to Local Layers: Exploring Flexible Representations for Motion Estimation - Deqing Sun, Harvard

Wednesday, March 04, 2015 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Division of Applied Mathematics, Scientific Computing Seminar Yingda Cheng, Michigan State University L2 stable discontinuous Galerkin methods for one-dimensional two-way wave equations Simulating wave propagation is one of the fundamental problems in scientific computing. In this talk, we consider one-dimensional two-way wave equations, and investigate a family of L2 stable high order discontinuous Galerkin methods, which is defined through a general form of numerical fluxes. For these L2stable methods, we systematically establish stability, error estimates, and dispersion analysis.

Biomedical Engineering Seminar - "Visualizing and Quantifying Tissue Oxygen Tension with Porphyrin Toolkits and SMART Bandages

Thursday, March 05, 2015 9:00am - 10:00am

Conor Evans, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Dermatology Massachusetts Institute of Technology Oxygen plays a profound role in the biology of life. Impaired oxygen delivery has significant consequences, from ischemic injury and chronic wounds to therapeutically resistant carcinoma. A major challenge in assessing the oxygenation of tissues is the fact that oxygen itself is rather difficult to directly detect.

Scientific Computing Seminar - Optimal error estimates for discontinuous Galerkin methods based on upwind-biased fluxes for linear hyperbolic equations - Xiong Meng, University of East Anglia

Friday, March 20, 2015 2:00pm - 3:00pm

The Division of Applied Mathematics, Scientific Computing Seminar Xiong Meng, University of East Anglia Optimal error estimates for discontinuous Galerkin methods based on upwind-biased fluxes for linear hyperbolic equations In this talk, we will analyze discontinuous Galerkin methods using upwind-biased numerical fluxes for time-dependent linear conservation laws. In one dimension, optimal a priori error estimates of order are obtained for the semidiscrete scheme when piecewise polynomials of degree at most are used.
