**Subject: Mimetic Discretizations**

Colleagues:

I am organizing a web site devoted to

Mimetic Discretization of Continuum Mechanics

http://math.unm.edu/~stanly/mimetic.html

The main idea of these methods is to discretize some mathematical theory

such as vector calculus and then use these methods to discretize problems

in continuum mechanics. These techniques use ideas from vector calculus,

differential geometry (differential forms), and algebraic topology (chains

and cochains). We will plan a workshop for interested parties.

**Subject: Workshop in Heidelberg on Reactive Flow, Diffusion and Transport**

The Sonderforschungsbereich "Reactive Flow, Diffusion and

Transport" (SFB 359) at the University of Heidelberg

in cooperation with AMIF (Applied Mathematics for Industrial

Flow Problems) is organizing the Workshop

"Adaptive Methods for Flow Computation" (AMFLOW 2001)

in October 22-24, 2001. The local organizers are:

Prof. Rolf Rannacher

Dr. Roland Becker

Dr. Malte Braack

The theme of the workshop is the combination of traditional

methods for numerically solving flow problems with new

approaches to adaptive mesh design and error control.

This includes a posteriori error estimation in finite volume

and finite element methods, techniques for local mesh

optimization, post-processing and efficient solution methods

on such locally refined meshes.

The underlying models are the Navier-Stokes equations for

incompressible as well as compressible flows with special

emphasis on viscous and low-Mach number effects. In addition,

multi-component flows, chemically reactive flows and

multi-phase flows are of interest. Applications of interest

are for example, in micro-flows, chemical flow reactors,

fluid-structure interaction, optimal control of flows, etc.

Program:

The program of the 3-day workshop will consist of some

invited survey lectures of 60 min. and contributed talks of

30 min including discussion. There will be time for intensive

discussion.

The following experts have already agreed to deliver

survey lectures:

1. M. Giles (Oxford):

Error control and post-processing without Galerkin orthogonality;

2. M. Feistauer (Prague):

Adaptive techniques in FV methods;

3. M. Peric (Hamburg):

Practical adaptivity in CFD

4. R. Becker (Heidelberg):

Duality techniques for error control an mesh adaptation

in FE methods.

Submission of talks (title and some lines of abstract) should be

sent before September, 30, 2001 via e-mail.

A limited number of travel grants is available for supporting young

scientists (phd students and post-docs) who want to attend.

**Subject: Research Positions at Delft University of Technology**

Joint research project of Shell Int. E&P, Philips Electronics and

Delft University of Technology.

In the Department of Applied Physics (Optics Group) and the Department of

Applied Mathematical Analysis (Numerical Analysis Group) two PhD positions are

available for the project:

"Rigorous modelling of 3D wave propagation for geophysics and

optical recording."

The goal of the project is to develop a rigorous, efficient parallel method

to solve the time harmonic 3D Helmholtz equation for seismic problems and

the time harmonic 3D Maxwell equations for the propagation of light

in optical recording.

Although the physical applications are different,

the geophysical and optical problems have mathematically and

numerically much in common. Due to the complexity in 3D, both models

will need an iterative parallel solver.

This motivated Shell and Philips to collaborate with each other and with

Delft University of Technology in this research project.

The project has just started and Delft University of Technology

would now like to hire as soon as possible two PhD students.

One PhD student will work on the common iterative solver, the other

PhD student will work on the modelling of light propagation in optical

recording. The students will work at Delft University, Shell Rijswijk or

Philips Research Eindhoven.

Subproject 1 Iterative solver for 3D wave propagation

Description: The work consists of developing an efficient (parallel) iterative

solver that can be applied to both the 3D Helmholtz equation

and the 3D Maxwell equations.

The first application will be the modelling in the frequency

domain of a seismic survey for subsurface studies.

The second application will be the modelling of the

light propagation based on the work done in subproject 2.

For further details about the position see

http://ta.twi.tudelft.nl/nw/users/vuik/vacature-wave.html

Requirements: the student must have either a masters degree in mathematics or

physics, or an engineering degree. A background in applied

mathematics is necessary, especially good skills in linear

algebra and computing science.

Information: for information contact

Dr. Ir. C. Vuik (tel. +31-15 2785530), or

Ir. A. Segal (tel. +31-15 2785535).

Subproject 2 Modelling of 3D light propagation for optical recording using

the Maxwell equations

Description: In optical recording a focused laser spot

is used to read and/or write bit patterns on an optical disk.

Because of the demand for higher densities, details on the optical

disk have become smaller than the wavelength of the light.

The polarization of the light is then very important.

A rigorous 3D model based on Maxwell's equations is therefore

needed to study the interaction of the light spot with the disk.

The goal of the project is to extend an existing rigorous

model for 2D structures to 3D and to apply the model

to the study of the interaction of light with the optical disk.

In the first part of the project existing (direct or iterative

solvers) will be used, but the aim is to use

the efficient iterative solver solvers developed

in subproject 1 later. For more details see

http://www.optica.tn.tudelft.nl

Requirements: the student must have a masters degree in physics, applied

mathematics or an engineering degree.

Knowledge of electromagnetism and Maxwell's equations

is necessary and interest in computational physics and good

mathematical skills are required.
