𝐴 - 𝑃𝑂𝑆𝑇𝐸𝑅𝐼𝑂𝑅𝐼 error estimates for linear exterior problems 𝑉𝐼𝐴 mixed-FEM and DtN mappings

Mauricio A. Barrientos, Gabriel N. Gatica, Matthias Maischak (2002)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

In this paper we combine the dual-mixed finite element method with a Dirichlet-to-Neumann mapping (given in terms of a boundary integral operator) to solve linear exterior transmission problems in the plane. As a model we consider a second order elliptic equation in divergence form coupled with the Laplace equation in the exterior unbounded region. We show that the resulting mixed variational formulation and an associated discrete scheme using Raviart-Thomas spaces are well posed, and derive the...

2D simulation of flow behind a heated cylinder using spectral element approach with variable coefficients

Pech, Jan (2015)

Programs and Algorithms of Numerical Mathematics

The scheme for the numerical solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations coupled with the equation for temperature through the temperature dependent viscosity and thermal conductivity coefficients is presented. It is applied, together with the spectral element method, to the 2D calculations of flow around heated cylinder. High order polynomial approximation is combined with the decomposition of whole computational domain to only a few elements. Resulting data are compared with the experimental...

2-dimensional primal domain decomposition theory in detail

Dalibor Lukáš, Jiří Bouchala, Petr Vodstrčil, Lukáš Malý (2015)

Applications of Mathematics

We give details of the theory of primal domain decomposition (DD) methods for a 2-dimensional second order elliptic equation with homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions and jumping coefficients. The problem is discretized by the finite element method. The computational domain is decomposed into triangular subdomains that align with the coefficients jumps. We prove that the condition number of the vertex-based DD preconditioner is O ( ( 1 + log ( H / h ) ) 2 ) , independently of the coefficient jumps, where H and h denote...

3D domain decomposition method coupling conforming and nonconforming finite elements

Abdellatif Agouzal, Laurence Lamoulie, Jean-Marie Thomas (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

This paper deals with the solution of problems involving partial differential equations in  3 . For three dimensional case, methods are useful if they require neither domain boundary regularity nor regularity for the exact solution of the problem. A new domain decomposition method is therefore presented which uses low degree finite elements. The numerical approximation of the solution is easy, and optimal error bounds are obtained according to suitable norms.

3D monolithic finite element approach for aero-thermics processes in industrial furnaces⋆

E. Hachem, E. Massoni, T. Coupez (2011)

ESAIM: Proceedings

We consider in this paper a mathematical and numerical model to design an industrial software solution able to handle real complex furnaces configurations in terms of geometries, atmospheres, parts positioning, heat generators and physical thermal phenomena. A three dimensional algorithm based on stabilized finite element methods (SFEM) for solving the momentum, energy, turbulence and radiation equations is presented. An immersed volume method (IVM) for thermal coupling of fluids and solids is introduced...

3-dimensional multivertex reconstruction from 2-dimensional tracks observations using likelihood inference

Nikolai I. Chernov, Genadij A. Ososkov, Luc Pronzato (1992)

Applications of Mathematics

Let v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v k be vertices in the X Y Z -space, each vertex producing several tracks (straight lines) emanating from it within a narrow cone with a small angle about a fixed direction ( Z -axis). Each track is detected (by drift chambers or other detectors) by its projections on X Y and Y Z views independently with small errors. An automated method is suggested for the reconstruction of vertices from noisy observations of the tracks projections. The procedure is based on the likelihood inference for mixtures. An illustrative...

4D Embryogenesis image analysis using PDE methods of image processing

Paul Bourgine, Róbert Čunderlík, Olga Drblíková-Stašová, Karol Mikula, Mariana Remešíková, Nadine Peyriéras, Barbara Rizzi, Alessandro Sarti (2010)


In this paper, we introduce a set of methods for processing and analyzing long time series of 3D images representing embryo evolution. The images are obtained by in vivo scanning using a confocal microscope where one of the channels represents the cell nuclei and the other one the cell membranes. Our image processing chain consists of three steps: image filtering, object counting (center detection) and segmentation. The corresponding methods are based on numerical solution of nonlinear PDEs, namely...

A backward particle interpretation of Feynman-Kac formulae

Pierre Del Moral, Arnaud Doucet, Sumeetpal S. Singh (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

We design a particle interpretation of Feynman-Kac measures on path spaces based on a backward Markovian representation combined with a traditional mean field particle interpretation of the flow of their final time marginals. In contrast to traditional genealogical tree based models, these new particle algorithms can be used to compute normalized additive functionals “on-the-fly” as well as their limiting occupation measures with a given precision degree that does not depend on the final time horizon. We...

A balanced finite-element method for an axisymmetrically loaded thin shell

Norbert Heuer, Torsten Linss (2024)

Applications of Mathematics

We analyse a finite-element discretisation of a differential equation describing an axisymmetrically loaded thin shell. The problem is singularly perturbed when the thickness of the shell becomes small. We prove robust convergence of the method in a balanced norm that captures the layers present in the solution. Numerical results confirm our findings.
