[Illinois] Knowledge, Context, and Process: Building a Foundational Infrastructure for Engineering Cells for Use in an Uncertain World
18 Aug 2015   Contributor(s):: Adam Arkin
Both natural and synthetically augmented organisms, like those engineered to produce advanced biofuels, ultimately have to operate in an uncertain world. Resources change, contact with other life, and yield surprising interactions, and in some cases, changes in one’s own genetic code lead...

[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...

Optimal Order Multigrid Preconditioners for Linear Systems Arising in the Semismooth Newton Method Solution Process of a Class of ControlConstrained 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 controlconstrained, quadratic distributed optimal control problems. Using a piecewise constant discretization of the control space, each semismooth...

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...

Iterative Solution Method for an Implicit Orbit Averaged ParticleinCell 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 VlasovMaxwell system to eliminate high frequency phenomena. Recently, a second order accurate, implicit particleincell...
