13th June – Jean-Luc Guermond: Invariant-domain preserving IMEX time stepping methods

Jean-Luc Guermond Thursday 13th June at 11:00   ABSTRACT: I will present high-order time discretizations of a Cauchy problem where the evolution operator comprises a hyperbolic part and a parabolic part (say diffusion and stiff relaxation terms). The said problem is assumed to possess an invariant domain. I will propose a technique that makes every implicit-explicit (IMEX) time stepping scheme invariant domain preserving and mass conservative. The IMEX scheme is written in incremental form and, at each stage of the scheme, we first compute low-order hyperbolic and parabolic updates, followed by their high-order counterparts. The proposed technique, which is agnostic to the space discretization, allows to optimize the time step restrictions induced by the hyperbolic sub-step. To illustrate the proposed methodology, we derive three novel IMEX schemes with optimal efficiency and for which the implicit scheme is singly-diagonal and L-stable: a third-order, four-stage scheme; and two fourth-order schemes, one with five stages and one with six stages. The novel IMEX schemes are evaluated numerically on a stiff ODE system. We also apply these schemes to nonlinear convection-diffusion problems with stiff reaction and to compressible viscous flows possibly including grey radiation.

16th June – ‪Chérif Amrouche: Elliptic Problems in Lipschitz and in $C^{1,1}$ Domains

Chérif Amrouche Thursday 16th June at 11:30   ABSTRACT: We are interested here in questions related to the maximal regularity of solutions to elliptic problems with Dirichlet or Neumann boundary conditions (see ([1]). For the last 40 years, many works have been concerned with questions when Ω is a Lipschitz domain. Some of them contain incorrect results that are corrected in the present work. We give here new proofs and some complements for the case of the Laplacian (see [3]), the Bilaplacian ([2] and [6]) and the operator div (A∇) (see ([5]) when A is a matrix or a function. And we extend this study to obtain other regularity results for domains having an adequate regularity. We give also new results for the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator for Laplacian and Bilaplacian. Using the duality method, we can then revisit the work of Lions-Magenes [4], concerning the so-called very weak solutions, when the data are less regular. References : [1]  C. Amrouche and M.

5th May – ‪Daniel Zegarra Vasquez: Simulation d’écoulements monophasiques en milieux poreux fracturés par la méthode des éléments finis mixtes hybrides

Daniel Zegarra Vasquez Thursday 5th May at 11:00   ABSTRACT: Dans les milieux souterrains, les fractures sont très nombreuses et présentes à toutes les échelles, avec des tailles très hétérogènes. Notamment pour les écoulements, elles sont des voies préférentielles : les écoulements y sont beaucoup plus rapides que dans la roche avoisinante. En effet, la perméabilité de la roche est généralement environ deux ordres de grandeur plus faible que celle des fractures. Cela fait que les fractures jouent un rôle primordial dans un grand nombre d’applications industrielles et environnementales. Ces particularités du domaine poreux fracturé rendent la modélisation et la simulation des écoulements qui y transitent un défi majeur aujourd’hui pour lequel il convient de développer des modélisations et méthodes numériques dédiées robustes et efficaces. Le modèle le plus couramment utilisé de représentation des fractures est le modèle de réseaux de fractures discrets dans lequel les fractures sont représentées comme des structures de codimension 1. Le modèle d’écoulements monophasiques en milieux poreux fracturés est décrit dans [5]. La particularité du problème poreux fracturé, par rapport au problème uniquement poreux ou uniquement fracturé [3], est le couplage entre l’écoulement dans les fractures et l’écoulement dans la roche. Du fait des difficultés rencontrées pour prendre en compte la complexité géométrique de grands réseaux fracturés dans les simulations, les cas tests proposés récemment dans la littérature sont majoritairement 2D, ou 3D avec un nombre limité (une dizaine) de fractures [1]. Dans cet exposé, nous présenterons le solveur nef-flow-fpm, qui permet de résoudre le problème poreux fracturé 3D stationnaire grâce à la méthode des éléments finis mixtes hybrides. La méthode développée dans le solveur est inspirée de [4]. Pour mailler le domaine, un premier maillage 2D simplical et conforme est généré pour le réseau de fractures et pour les bords du domaine, puis un…

7th April – ‪Christoph Lehrenfeld: Embedded Trefftz Discontinuous Galerkin methods

Christoph Lehrenfeld Thursday 7th April at 11:00   ABSTRACT: Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods are widely used to discretize partial differential equations (PDEs) due to (a.o.) flexibility for designing robust methods and simplicity in terms of data structures. One major drawback of DG methods is, however, the increased number of (globally coupled) degrees of freedom (ndof) compared to, for instance, continuous Galerkin methods. One – by now established – remedy is the use of Hybrid DG methods. These allow reducing the globally coupled ndof essentially by introducing the concept of static condensation for DG methods. Thereby the dimensions of global linear systems that need to be solved for reduced from O(p^d) to O(p^{d−1}), where d is the space dimension and p is the polynomial degree of the finite element space. A different approach is the use of Trefftz DG methods, where a DG formulation is modified by restricting the finite element spaces to functions that element-wise solve the PDE at hand. This results in a similar reduction of globally coupled ndof, cf. Figure 1 below. However, due to several limitations, Trefftz DG methods have only been applied for special PDEs so far. On the one hand, the finite element spaces have to be specifically tailored for each PDE type, on the other hand, inhomogeneous equations and non-constant coefficients in the differential operators are difficult to deal with and rarely treated. In this talk, we introduce Embedded Trefftz DG methods which exploit the existence of an underlying standard DG formulation for an efficient and flexible implementation of Trefftz DG methods. Furthermore, we relax Trefftz DG methods in view of the constraints on the finite element space leading to weak Trefftz DG spaces. Both together allow us to remove the limitations of Trefftz DG methods in order to enable them for a large…

19th April – ‪Christos Xenophontos: Finite Element approximation of singularly perturbed eigenvalue problems

Christos Xenophontos Tuesday 19th April at 14:00   ABSTRACT: We consider singularly perturbed eigenvalue problems in one-dimension, and their numerical approximation by the (standard Galerkin) Finite Element Method (FEM). These are fourth order equations, where a small parameter multiplies the highest order derivative. We will present results for an $h$ version FEM with polynomials of degree $p$ on an exponentially graded (eXp) mesh, as well as an $hp$ version FEM on the so-called Spectral Boundary Layer (SBL) mesh. For both methods, robust optimal convergence is shown for the eigenvalues and associated eigenfunctions. Numerical results, illustrating the theory, will also be presented. This is joint work with H. G. Roos.

24th March – ‪Miloslav Vlasak: A posteriori error estimates for discontinuous Galerkin method

Miloslav Vlasak Thursday 24th March at 11:00   ABSTRACT: We will present a posteriori error estimate for higher-order time discretizations, most importantly for the discontinuous Galerkin method, cf. [1]. Rather than the presentation of the estimates themselves, the talk shall focus on the most important ideas behind and their possible application to spatial nonconforming discretizations, most importantly to the discontinuous Galerkin method again. Overall, the talk shall rather focus on open problems than on the presentation of the fully completed results. Additionally, the ideas of reconstructions by the Radau polynomials that are the core ideas in a posteriori error estimates for time discretizations can be exploited for the direct efficiency analysis of the derived estimates. This can enable tracking the dependence of the efficiency constant on the discretization polynomial degree in 1D, cf. [2]. Possible extensions of this result to multiple dimensions shall be discussed. References [1] V. Dolejsi, F. Roskovec, M.

14th April – ‪Idrissa Niakh: Stable model reduction for linear variational inequalities with parameter-dependent constraints

‪Idrissa Niakh Thursday 14th April at 11:00   ABSTRACT: We consider model reduction for linear variational inequalities with parameter-dependent constraints. We study the stability of the reduced problem in the context of a dualized formulation of the constraints using Lagrange multipliers. Our main result is an algorithm that guarantees inf-sup stability of the reduced problem. The algorithm is computationally effective since it can be performed in the offline phase even for parameter-dependent constraints. Moreover, we also propose a modification of the Cone Projected Greedy algorithm so as to avoid ill-conditioning issues when manipulating the reduced dual basis. Our results are illustrated numerically on the frictionless Hertz contact problem between two half-spheres with parameter-dependent radius and on the membrane obstacle problem with parameter-dependent obstacle geometry.

10th March – ‪Ruma Maity: Parameter dependent finite element analysis for ferronematics solutions

Ruma Maity‬‬ Thursday 10th March at 11:00   ABSTRACT: In this talk, we focus on the analysis of a free energy functional, that models a dilute suspension of magnetic nanoparticles in a two-dimensional nematic well, referred to as ferronematics. We discuss the asymptotic analysis of global energy minimizers in the limit of vanishing elastic constant, where the re-scaled elastic constant l is inversely proportional to the domain area. The conforming finite element method is used to approximate the regular solutions of the corresponding non-linear system of partial differential equations with cubic nonlinearity and non-homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions. We establish the existence and local uniqueness of the discrete solutions, error estimates in the energy and L2 norms with l- discretization parameter dependency. The theoretical results are complemented by the numerical experiments on the discrete solution profiles, and the numerical convergence rates that corroborate the theoretical estimates. This talk is based on joint works with Apala Majumdar (Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Strathclyde, UK) and Neela Nataraj (Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India).

3rd Feburary – ‪Pierre Matalon‬‬ : An h-multigrid method for Hybrid High-Order discretizations of elliptic equations

Pierre Matalon Thursday 3rd Feburary at 11:00   ABSTRACT: We consider a second order elliptic PDE discretized by the Hybrid High-Order method, for which globally coupled unknowns are located at faces. To efficiently solve the resulting linear system, we propose a geometric multigrid algorithm that keeps the degrees of freedom on the faces at every grid level. The core of the algorithm lies in the design of the prolongation operator that passes information from coarse to fine faces through the reconstruction of an intermediary polynomial of higher degree on the cells. High orders are natively handled by the use of the same polynomial degree at every grid level. The proposed algorithm requires a hierarchy of polyhedral meshes such that the faces (and not only the elements) are successively coarsened. Numerical tests on homogeneous and heterogeneous diffusion problems show fast convergence, asymptotic optimality with respect to the mesh size, robustness to the polynomial order, and robustness with respect to heterogeneity of the diffusion coefficient.
