Computational Techniques for Chemical Systems

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
New Hampshire 2

The purpose of this minisymposium is to present advanced computational techniques for solving large-scale interdisciplinary problems occurring in chemical and biological sciences as well as chemical engineering. Nonlinear systems of partial differential equations are used for modeling fabrication processes for bio-artificial arteries, isothermal reactions which incorporate autocatalysis with decay, and chemical reactions including systems with stiff chemistry. The diverse nature of these applications instills the need for appropriate computer architecture and algorithms. The speakers in the minisymposium will focus on linearly implicit finite difference schemes, methods of lines, Rosenbrock methods and adaptive finite element software.
