Multiscale methods in science and engineering by Björn Engquist( )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multiscale problems naturally pose severe challenges for computational science and engineering. The smaller scales must be well resolved over the range of the larger scales. Challenging multiscale problems are very common and are found in e.g. materials science, fluid mechanics, electrical and mechanical engineering. Homogenization, subgrid modelling, heterogeneous multiscale methods, multigrid, multipole, and adaptive algorithms are examples of methods to tackle these problems. This volume is an overview of current mathematical and computational methods for problems with multiple scales with

Highly oscillatory problems( Book )

14 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first book to approach high oscillation as a subject of its own, Highly Oscillatory Problems begins a new dialogue and lays the groundwork for future research. It ensues from the six-month programme held at the Newton Institute of Mathematical Sciences, which was the first time that different specialists in highly oscillatory research, from diverse areas of mathematics and applications, had been brought together for a single intellectual agenda. This ground-breaking volume consists of eight review papers by leading experts in subject areas of active research, with an emphasis on computation: numerical Hamiltonian problems, highly oscillatory quadrature, rapid approximation of functions, high frequency wave propagation, numerical homogenization, discretization of the wave equation, high frequency scattering and the solution of elliptic boundary value problems
Computational fluid dynamics and reacting gas flows by Björn Engquist( Book )

17 editions published in 1988 in English and German and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains papers presented at the workshop on Computational Fluid Dynamics and Reacting Gas Flows held at the Institute for Mathematics and Its Applications during September, 1986. Computational fluid dynamics has become a research area of central importance to mathematics, science, and technology. It is a subject which brings together applied mathematics and numerical analysis to solve problems in fluid dynamics. Included in this volume is the description of new algorithms which can make possible the discovery of important new scientific phenomena and the development of new technological processes. This volume will be of interest to mathematicians, scientists, and engineers who are interested in the current research of international leaders in numerical analysis and scientific computing
Large-scale computations in fluid mechanics( Book )

Computational wave propagation : with 69 illustrations by Björn Engquist( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and German and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers contained in this volume represent a snap-shot of current applied mathematics research in wave propagation and scattering. Although the mathematical underpinnings of the research contained herein are rooted in classical asymptotic and numerical analyses, each author is motivated by a complex technological problem which requires a resolution. The problems range from using underwater sound to monitor and predict global warming, to periodically embedding phase-sensitive amplifiers in optical fibres to insure long range digital communication. Such variety shows that wave propagation and scattering remain vital and important areas of mathematical and scientific endeavors
Large scale scientific computing by P Deuflhard( Book )

9 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the new and rapidly expanding field of scientific computing is understood in a double sense: as computing for scientific and engineering problems and as the science of doing such computations. Thus scientific computing touches at one side mathematical modelling (in the various fields of applications) and at the other side computer science. As soon as the mathematical models de scribe the features of real life processes in sufficient detail, the associated computations tend to be large scale. As a consequence, interest more and more focusses on such numerical methods that can be expected to cope with large scale computational problems. Moreover, given the algorithms which are known to be efficient on a tradi tional computer, the question of implementation on modern supercomputers may get crucial. The present book is the proceedings of a meeting on "Large Scale Scientific Computing", that was held a t the Oberwolfach Mathematical Institute (July 14-19, 1985) under the auspices of the Sonderforschungsbereich 123 of the University of Heidelberg. Participants included applied scientists with computational interests, numerical analysts, and experts on modern parallel computers. 'l'he purpose of the meeting was to establish a common under standing of recent issues in scientific computing, especially in view of large scale problems. Fields of applications, which have been covered, included semi-conductor design, chemical combustion, flow through porous media, climatology, seismology, fluid dynami. cs, tomography, rheology, hydro power plant optimization, subwil. y control, space technology
Encyclopedia of applied and computational mathematics( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EACM is a comprehensive reference work covering the vast field of applied and computational mathematics. Applied mathematics itself accounts for at least 60 per cent of mathematics, and the emphasis on computation reflects the current and constantly growing importance of computational methods in all areas of applications. EACM emphasizes the strong links of applied mathematics with major areas of science, such as physics, chemistry, biology, and computer science, as well as specific fields like atmospheric ocean science. In addition, the mathematical input to modern engineering and technology form another core component of EACM
Simulation and visualization on the grid : Parallelldatorcentrum, Kungl Tekniska Högskolan, seventh annual conference, Stockholm, Sweden, December 1999 : proceedings by Björn Engquist( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Grid is an emerging computational infrastructure, similar to the pervasive energy infrastructure provided by national power grids. Simulation and Visualization on the Grid focuses on applications and technologies on this emerging computational Grid. Readers will find interesting discussions of such Grid technologies as distributed file I/O, clustering, CORBA software infrastructure, tele-immersion, interaction environments, visualization steering and virtual reality as well as applications in biology, chemistry and physics. A lively panel discussion addresses current successes and pitfalls of the Grid. This book provides an understanding of the Grid that offers a persistent, wide-scale infrastructure for solving problems

Fast wavelet based algorithms for linear evolution equations by Björn Engquist( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We devise a class of fast wavelet based algorithms for linear evolution equations whose coefficients are time independent. The method draws on the work of Beylkin, Coifman, and Rokhlin 1 which they applied to general Calderon-Zygmund type integral operators. We apply a modification of their idea to linear hyperbolic and parabolic equations, with spatially varying coefficients. A significant speedup over standard methods is obtained when applied to hyperbolic equations in one space dimension and parabolic equations in multidimensions. wavelets; hyperbolic; parabolic; numerical methods
