Prof. Dr. Quarteroni - Numerical Models for Complexity Reduction in Multiphysics Problems

Mathematics Institute of Computational Science and Engineering
École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne

Abstract

The numerical solution of complex physical problems often requires a great deal of computational resources.
Sometimes, the numerical problem is so large that a reduction of its complexity becomes mandatory. This can be achieved by a manifold strategy with the attempt of simplifying the original mathematical model, devising novel numerical approximation methods, developing efficient parallel algorithms that exploit the dimensional reduction paradigm.
After introducing some illustrative examples, in this seminar several approaches will be proposed and a few representative applications to blood flow modeling, sports design, and the environment will be addressed.
