MiC Seminars

Project Status: Active

Purpose of the Seminars

The Mathematics in Computation (MiC) seminar series occurs every Thursday, 3 - 4 pm EST and hosts speakers from various areas of research aligning with the staff from the section. The goal of this series is to promote dialogue and collaboration between individuals and groups across institutions. The styles of talk include colloquiums, seminars, workshop and symposia.

If you are a member in the MiC section and are interested in hosting a speaker, please contact Pravi Devineni <>

Isogeometric and Meshfree Analysis of Nonlocal Damage, Fracture, and Contract Part II: Mathematical Issues

An immediately-preceding computational mechanics seminar introduced the motivation for and several applications of nonlocal models for damage and contact mechanics, and presented the case for combining meshfree and isogeometric numerical methods for such problems, illustrated by several examples.

A Mathematical Model of Asynchronous Data Flow in Parallel Computers

In the first part of this talk, we present a simple ordinary differential equation model of data flow through nodes in a computer processor network. Under an appropriate asymptotic scaling, this model approximates a partial differential equation which treats data as a continuum fluid and takes the form of a non-standard conservation law. From this conservation law, we derive a Hamilton-Jacobi equation for which the existence and uniqueness of solutions can be proven. [See more]
