Quantifying Uncertainties in Physical Models
28 Aug 2017   Contributor(s):: Ilias Bilionis
Increasing modeling detail is not necessarily correlated with increasing predictive ability. Setting modeling and numerical discretization errors aside, the more detailed a model gets, the larger the number of parameters required to accurately specify its initial/boundary conditions,...

A Distributed Algorithm for Computing a Common Fixed Point of a Family of Paracontractions
21 Jun 2017   Contributor(s):: A. Stephen Morse
In this talk a distributed algorithm is described for finding a common fixed point of a family of m paracontractions assuming that such a common fixed point exists. The common fixed point is simultaneously computed by m agents assuming each agent knows only paracontraction, the current estimates...

Machine learned approximations to Density Functional Theory Hamiltonians  Towards HighThroughput Screening of Electronic Structure and Transport in Materials
13 Dec 2016   Contributor(s):: Ganesh Krishna Hegde
We present results from our recent work on direct machine learning of DFT Hamiltonians. We show that approximating DFT Hamiltonians accurately by direct learning is feasible and compare them to existing semiempirical approaches to the problem. The technique we have proposed requires little...

High Accuracy Atomic Force Microscope with SelfOptimizing Scan Control
19 Sep 2016   Contributor(s):: Ryan (Youngkook) Yoo
Atomic force microscope (AFM) is a very useful instrument in characterizing nanoscale features, However, the original AFM design, based on piezotube scanner, had slow response and nonorthogonal behavior, inadequate to address the metrology needs of industrial applications: accuracy,...

DataCentric Models for Multilevel Algorithms
07 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Samuel Guiterrez
Today, computational scientists must contend with a diverse set of supercomputer architectures that are capable of exposing unprecedented levels of parallelism and complexity. Effectively placing, moving, and operating on data residing in complex distributed memory hierarchies is quickly...

Range Decomposition: A Low Communication Algorithm for Solving PDEs on Massively Parallel Machines
07 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Tom Manteuffel
The Range Decomposition (RD) algorithm uses nested iteration and adaptive mesh refinement locally before performing a global communication step. Only several such steps are observed to be necessary before reaching a solution within a small multiple of discretization error. The target application...

A Scalable Algorithm for Inverse Medium Problems with Multiple Sources
04 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Keith Kelly
We consider the problem of acoustic scattering as described by the freespace, timeharmonic scalar wave equation given by (0.1) along with radiation boundary conditions. Here, is a point in , is the source term, and is the wavenumber. Our formulation is based on potential theory....
