High Resolution and Robust Interface Methods and Applications

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Room: Sidney Smith 2117

The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss numerical methods for dynamically moving interfaces, including front tracking and convolution-based methods. They will present an overview on the mathematical requirements and scientific applications; discuss convolution-based methods with sharpening for approximating interface motions, the effort to increase robustness of the front tracking method using certain techniques from the Eulerian approach; and a physical problem in which such methods can be applied.
