Next Mathematics Colloquium

On Thursday, May 7, 2015, Dr. Yekaterina Epshteyn, Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the University of Utah, will present a colloquium lecture on High-order accurate numerical methods for elliptic and parabolic interface problems.

Abstract:  In this talk, first, we will give an introduction to the Difference Potentials Method (DPM). DPM is a framework for developing efficient, high-order accurate numerical methods for the solution of interior or exterior boundary value problems (BVPs) on arbitrary domains. DPM can be viewed as a discrete analog to the method of generalized Calderón potentials and Calderón boundary equations with projections in the theory of partial differential equations. Designing numerical methods with high-order accuracy for problems with interfaces (for example, models for composite materials or fluids, etc.), as well as models in irregular domains is crucial to many physical and biological applications. We will discuss recently developed efficient numerical schemes based on the idea of the Difference Potentials for elliptic and parabolic interface/composite domain problems. Numerical experiments to illustrate high-order accuracy and the robustness of the developed methods will be presented as well.

This colloquium will be held in 7800 York Road, Room 320 at 4:00 p.m., with light refreshments served before the talk, at 3:30 p.m.
