2D-1D dimensional reduction in a toy model for magnetoelastic interactions

Mouhcine Tilioua (2011)

Applications of Mathematics

The paper deals with the dimensional reduction from 2D to 1D in magnetoelastic interactions. We adopt a simplified, but nontrivial model described by the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation for the magnetization field coupled to an evolution equation for the displacement. We identify the limit problem by using the so-called energy method.

3-dimensional physically consistent diffusion in anisotropic media with memory

Michele Caputo (1998)

Atti della Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. Classe di Scienze Fisiche, Matematiche e Naturali. Rendiconti Lincei. Matematica e Applicazioni

Some data on the flow of fluids exhibit properties which may not be interpreted with the classic theory of propagation of pressure and of fluids [21] based on the classic D’Arcy’s law which states that the flux is proportional to the pressure gradient. In order to obtain a better representation of the flow and of the pressure of fluids the law of D’Arcy is here modified introducing a memory formalisms operating on the flow as well as on the pressure gradient which implies a filtering of the pressure...

A Coherent Derivation of an Average Ion Model Including the Evolution of Correlations Between Different Shells

Daniel Bouche, Alain Decoster, Laurent Desvillettes, Valeria Ricci (2013)

MathematicS In Action

We propose in this short note a method enabling to write in a systematic way a set of refined equations for average ion models in which correlations between populations are taken into account, starting from a microscopic model for the evolution of the electronic configuration probabilities. Numerical simulations illustrating the improvements with respect to standard average ion models are presented at the end of the paper.

A direct and accurate adaptive semi-Lagrangian scheme for the Vlasov-Poisson equation

Martin Campos Pinto (2007)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

This article aims at giving a simplified presentation of a new adaptive semi-Lagrangian scheme for solving the (1+1)-dimensional Vlasov-Poisson system, which was developed in 2005 with Michel Mehrenberger and first described in (Campos Pinto and Mehrenberger, 2007). The main steps of the analysis are also given, which yield the first error estimate for an adaptive scheme in the context of the Vlasov equation. This article focuses on a key feature of our method, which is a new algorithm to transport...

A geometric derivation of the linear Boltzmann equation for a particle interacting with a Gaussian random field, using a Fock space approach

Sébastien Breteaux (2014)

Annales de l’institut Fourier

In this article the linear Boltzmann equation is derived for a particle interacting with a Gaussian random field, in the weak coupling limit, with renewal in time of the random field. The initial data can be chosen arbitrarily. The proof is geometric and involves coherent states and semi-classical calculus.

A Hermite-type adaptive semi-Lagrangian scheme

Michel Mehrenberger, Eric Violard (2007)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

We study a new Hermite-type interpolating operator arising in a semi-Lagrangian scheme for solving the Vlasov equation in the D phase space. Numerical results on uniform and adaptive grids are shown and compared with the biquadratic Lagrange interpolation introduced in (Campos Pinto and Mehrenberger, 2004) in the case of a rotating Gaussian.

A heterogeneous alternating-direction method for a micro-macro dilute polymeric fluid model

David J. Knezevic, Endre Süli (2009)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

We examine a heterogeneous alternating-direction method for the approximate solution of the FENE Fokker–Planck equation from polymer fluid dynamics and we use this method to solve a coupled (macro-micro) Navier–Stokes–Fokker–Planck system for dilute polymeric fluids. In this context the Fokker–Planck equation is posed on a high-dimensional domain and is therefore challenging from a computational point of view. The heterogeneous alternating-direction scheme combines a spectral Galerkin method for...

A Langevin Description for Driven Granular Gases

P. Maynar, M. I. García de Soria (2011)

Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena

The study of the fluctuations in the steady state of a heated granular system is reviewed. A Boltzmann-Langevin description can be built requiring consistency with the equations for the one- and two-particle correlation functions. From the Boltzmann-Langevin equation, Langevin equations for the total energy and the transverse velocity field are derived. The existence of a fluctuation-dissipation relation for the transverse velocity field is also...

A linear mixed finite element scheme for a nematic Ericksen–Leslie liquid crystal model

F. M. Guillén-González, J. V. Gutiérrez-Santacreu (2013)

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

In this work we study a fully discrete mixed scheme, based on continuous finite elements in space and a linear semi-implicit first-order integration in time, approximating an Ericksen–Leslie nematic liquid crystal model by means of a Ginzburg–Landau penalized problem. Conditional stability of this scheme is proved via a discrete version of the energy law satisfied by the continuous problem, and conditional convergence towards generalized Young measure-valued solutions to the Ericksen–Leslie problem...

A lower bound for the principal eigenvalue of the Stokes operator in a random domain

V. V. Yurinsky (2008)

Annales de l'I.H.P. Probabilités et statistiques

This article is dedicated to localization of the principal eigenvalue (PE) of the Stokes operator acting on solenoidal vector fields that vanish outside a large random domain modeling the pore space in a cubic block of porous material with disordered micro-structure. Its main result is an asymptotically deterministic lower bound for the PE of the sum of a low compressibility approximation to the Stokes operator and a small scaled random potential term, which is applied to produce a similar bound...

A model of dense fluids

R. Streater (1998)

Banach Center Publications

We obtain coupled reaction-diffusion equations for the density and temperature of a dense fluid, starting from a discrete model in which at most one particle can be present at each site. The model is constructed by the methods of statistical dynamics. We verify that the theory obeys the first and second laws of thermodynamics. Some remarks on measurement theory for the position of a particle are offered.

A model of evolution of temperature and density of ions in an electrolyte

Andrzej Raczyński (2005)

Applicationes Mathematicae

We study existence and nonexistence of solutions (both stationary and evolution) for a parabolic-elliptic system describing the electrodiffusion of ions. In this model the evolution of temperature is also taken into account. For stationary states the existence of an external potential is also assumed.

A new exponentially fitted triangular finite element method for the continuity equations in the drift-diffusion model of semiconductor devices

Song Wang (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

In this paper we present a novel exponentially fitted finite element method with triangular elements for the decoupled continuity equations in the drift-diffusion model of semiconductor devices. The continuous problem is first formulated as a variational problem using a weighted inner product. A Bubnov-Galerkin finite element method with a set of piecewise exponential basis functions is then proposed. The method is shown to be stable and can be regarded as an extension to two dimensions of the...
