Hub Snub: Removing Vertices with High Degree from Coarse-grid Correction
04 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Geoffry Sanders
Network scientists often employ numerical solutions to linear systems as subroutines of data mining algorithms. Due to the ill-conditioned nature of the systems, obtaining solutions with standard...
On the Preconditioning of a High-Order RDG-based All-Speed Navier-Stokes Solver
04 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Brian Weston
We investigate the preconditioning of an all-speed Navier-Stokes solver, based on the orthogonal-basis Reconstructed Discontinuous Galerkin (RDG) space discretization, and integrated using a...
Is the Ideal Approximation Operator Always "Ideal" for a Particular C/F Splitting?
04 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Erin Molloy
Given a coarse grid, the ideal prolongation operator is defined by , where the weight matrix, , interpolates a set of fine grid variable (-points) from a set of coarse grid...
Reducing Communication Costs for Sparse Matrix Multiplication within Algebraic Multigrid
04 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Grey Ballard
We consider the sequence of sparse matrix-matrix multiplications performed during the setup phase of algebraic multigrid. In particular, we show that the most commonly used parallel algorithm is...
Space-time constrained FOSLS with AMGe upscaling
04 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | 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...
Multilevel Markov Chain Monte Carlo for Uncertainty Quantification in Subsurface Flow
04 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Christian Ketelsen
The multilevel Monte Carlo method has been shown to be an effective variance reduction technique for quantifying uncertainty in subsurface flow simulations when the random conductivity field can...
Discretization of Elliptic Differential Equations Using Sparse Grids and Prewavelets
04 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Christoph Pflaum
Sparse grids can be used to discretize second order elliptic differential equations on a d-dimensional cube. Using Galerkin discretization, we obtain a linear equation system...
High Dimensional Uncertainty Quantification via Multilevel Monte Carlo
04 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Hillary Fairbanks
Multilevel Monte Carlo (MLMC) has been shown to be a cost effective way to compute moments of desired quantities of interest in stochastic partial differential equations when the uncertainty in...
Stable Discretizations and Robust Block Preconditioners for Fluid-Structure Interaction Systems
04 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kai Yang
In our work we develop a family of preconditioners for the linear algebraic systems arising from the arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian discretization of some fluid-structure interaction models. After...
