Iterative Solution Method for an Implicit Orbit Averaged Particle-in-Cell Model
18 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Benjamin Sturdevant
Present kinetic simulations of turbulence in magnetized plasmas employ models from gyrokinetic theory, which is based on a number of ordering assumptions used to reduce the Vlasov-Maxwell system to eliminate high frequency phenomena. Recently, a second order accurate, implicit particle-in-cell...
Multilevel Solvers for High Resolution Electric Field Calculations
18 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Andrew Reisner
High fidelity electric field calculations are a critical component in plasma simulations. In this this talk we consider the problem of a dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) wherein the electric field is calculated to support a compressible flow, thus requiring a highly efficient global solve. The...
Optimal Order Multigrid Preconditioners for Linear Systems Arising in the Semismooth Newton Method Solution Process of a Class of Control-Constrained Problems
18 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Andrei Draganescu
In this work we present a new multigrid preconditioner for the linear systems arising in the semismooth Newton method solution process of certain control-constrained, quadratic distributed optimal control problems. Using a piecewise constant discretization of the control space, each semismooth...

[Illinois] Integration of Quantum Dot Nanoparticles with Multimodal Microspheres for PET and Cerenkov Luminescene Imaging of Cancer
18 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Joanne Li
Cerenkov luminescence (CL) imaging utilizes the photons emitted during radioactive decay when charged particles travel faster than the phase velocity of light in a dielectric medium. In this talk, I will present a novel agent to convert and increase CL emission at longer wavelengths using...
