  1. New FOSLS Formulation of Nonlinear Stokes Flow for Glaciers

    07 Feb 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Jeffrey Allen

    This talk describes two First-order System Least-squares (FOSLS) formulations of the nonlinear Stokes flow used to model glaciers and ice sheets. The first is a Stress formulation and the second a Stress-Vorticity formulation. Both use fluidity, which is the reciprocal of viscosity and avoid the...

  2. Space-time constrained FOSLS with AMGe upscaling

    04 Feb 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Panayot Vassilevski

    We consider time-dependent PDEs discretized in combined space-time domains. We first reduce the PDE to a first order system. Very often in practice, one of the equations of the reduced system involves the divergence operator (in space-time). The popular FOSLS (first order system least-squares)...
