Scientific parallel computing by L. Ridgway Scott( Book )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From modelling financial markets to global weather patterns, parallel computing enables computations beyond the reach of sequential methods. This text integrates all the fundamentals of parallel computing while also providing a basis for a deeper understanding of the subject
Numerical analysis by L. Ridgway Scott( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Computational science is fundamentally changing how technological questions are addressed. The design of aircraft, automobiles, and even racing sailboats is now done by computational simulation. The mathematical foundation of this new approach is numerical analysis, which studies algorithms for computing expressions defined with real numbers. Emphasizing the theory behind the computation, this book provides a rigorous and self-contained introduction to numerical analysis and presents the advanced mathematics that underpin industrial software, including complete details that are missing from most textbooks
A mathematical approach to protein biophysics by L. Ridgway Scott( )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores quantitative aspects of protein biophysics and attempts to delineate certain rules of molecular behavior that make atomic scale objects behave in a digital way. This book will help readers to understand how certain biological systems involving proteins function as digital information systems despite the fact that underlying processes are analog in nature. The in-depth explanation of proteins from a quantitative point of view and the variety of level of exercises (including physical experiments) at the end of each chapter will appeal to graduate and senior undergraduate students in mathematics, computer science, mechanical engineering, and physics, wanting to learn about the biophysics of proteins. L. Ridgway Scott has been Professor of Computer Science and of Mathematics at the University of Chicago since 1998, and the Louis Block Professor since 2001. He obtained a B.S. degree (Magna Cum Laude) from Tulane University in 1969 and a PhD degree in Mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1973. Professor Scott has published over 130 papers and three books, extending over biophysics, parallel computing and fundamental computing aspects of structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, nuclear engineering, and computational chemistry.

The Mathematical Theory of Finite Element Methods by Susanne C Brenner( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book develops the basic mathematical theory of the finite element method, the most widely used technique for engineering design and analysis. The third edition contains four new sections: the BDDC domain decomposition preconditioner, convergence analysis of an adaptive algorithm, interior penalty methods and Poincara\'e-Friedrichs inequalities for piecewise W^1_p functions. New exercises have also been added throughout. The initial chapter provides an introducton to the entire subject, developed in the one-dimensional case. Four subsequent chapters develop the basic theory in the multidimensional case, and a fifth chapter presents basic applications of this theory. Subsequent chapters provide an introduction to: - multigrid methods and domain decomposition methods - mixed methods with applications to elasticity and fluid mechanics - iterated penalty and augmented Lagrangian methods - variational "crimes" including nonconforming and isoparametric methods, numerical integration and interior penalty methods - error estimates in the maximum norm with applications to nonlinear problems - error estimators, adaptive meshes and convergence analysis of an adaptive algorithm - Banach-space operator-interpolation techniques The book has proved useful to mathematicians as well as engineers and physical scientists. It can be used for a course that provides an introduction to basic functional analysis, approximation theory and numerical analysis, while building upon and applying basic techniques of real variable theory. It can also be used for courses that emphasize physical applications or algorithmic efficiency. Reviews of earlier editions: "This book represents an important contribution to the mathematical literature of finite elements. It is both a well-done text and a good reference." (Mathematical Reviews, 1995) "This is an excellent, though demanding, introduction to key mathematical topics in the finite element method, and at the same time a valuable reference and source for workers in the area."

Numerical schemes for a model for nonlinear dispersive waves by Jerry L Bona( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A description is given of a number of numerical schemes to solve an evolution equation (Korteweg-deVries) that arises when modelling the propagation of water waves in a channel. The discussion also includes the results of numerical experiments made with each of the schemes. It is suggested, on the basis of these experiments, that one of the schemes may have (discrete) solitary-wave solutions. (Author)
ERROR ESTIMATES FOR GAUSSIAN QUADRATURE AND WEIGHTED-L1 POLYNOMIAL APPROXIMATION by Ronald A DeVore( Book )

5 editions published in 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Error estimates for Gaussian quadrature are given in terms of the number of quadrature points and smoothness properties of the function whose integral is being approximated. An intermediate step involves a weighted-L polynomial approximation problem which is treated in a more general context than that specifically required to estimate the Gaussian quadrature error
A comparison of solutions of two model equations for long waves by J. L Bona( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is concerned with mathematical models representing the unidirectional propagation of weakly nonlinear dispersive waves. Interest will be directed toward two particular models that are originally studied in the context of surface-wave phenomena in open-channel flows. The purpose of the present paper is to make a quantitative comparison between the solutions to the initial-value problem for each of these models. The basic conclusion of the study is that, on a long time scale T naturally related to the underlying physical situation, the equations predict the same outcome to within their implied order of accuracy. In this case the choice of one of these models over the other to describe a physical problem is apparently immaterial, with factors of incidental convenience probably providing the main criteria in a given situation.

What Kind of Workstation Should I Buy? Seven-Fold Criteria for Hardware and Software by Larkin Ridgway Scott( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problem of designing a workstation suitable for an individual scientist or group of scientists are addressed from an abstract point of view. A set of seven criteria concerning hardware are presented that should be considered when assessing one's needs and comparing various available products. Seven categories of software are also discussed that are critical for someone doing code development, testing and production runs on a remote computer (mainframe or supercomputer). The criteria discussed are intended to be a model checklist relevant especially for people doing code development and production work in scientific computation. After discussing criteria for evaluating workstations, two examples are given of inexpensive yet powerful systems that should be possible to assemble today. (Author)
Regular inversion of the divergence operator with Dirichlet boundary conditions on a polygon by University of Minnesota( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Consider the existence of regular solutions to the boundary value problem div U = f on a plane polygonal domain Omega with the Dirichlet boundary condition U = g on del Omega. We formulate simultaneously necessary and sufficient conditions on f and g in order that a solution U exist in the Sobolev space W (over s+1 to p) (Omega). In addition to the obvious regularity and integral conditions these consist of at most one compatibility condition at each vertex of the polygon. In the special case of homogeneous boundary data, it is necessary and sufficient that f belong to W (over s to p) (Omega), have mean value zero, and vanish at each vertex. (The latter condition only applies if s is large enough that the point values make sense.) We construct a solution operator which is independent of s and p. Various new trace theorems for Sobolev spaces on polygons are obtained. Keywords: Divergence; Trace; Sobolev space; Reprints
