Prof. Dr. Michael Junk - Introduction to the Lattice Boltzmann Method
Mathematics & Statistics, University of Konstanz
The lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) is a numerical method for fluid flow problems which exploits a link between classical continuum descriptions and the kinetic theory of gases. In the talk, this underlying principle is explained and the practical consequences are highlighted: the simpler differential operator in the Boltzmann-type equation simplifies the numerical treatment while the singular limit connecting the different equations leads to mathematical challenges.
