Distinguished Applied Mathematics Lectures by Professor Chi-Wang Shu 舒其望, May 30, 2013


Speaker:Chi-Wang Shu 舒其望
(Theodore B. Stowell University Professor of Applied Mathematics, Division of Applied Mathematics, Brown Universityy)
Title:Discontinuous Galerkin Method for Convection Dominated Partial Differential Equations
Time:May 30 (Thursday) 14:00-15:10pm

Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method is a finite element method with features from high resolution finite difference and finite volume schemes such as approximate Riemann solvers and nonlinear limiters. It was originally designed for solving hyperbolic conservation laws but has been generalized later to solve higher order convection dominated partial differential equations (PDEs) such as convection diffusion equations and convection dispersion equations. The DG method has been widely applied, in areas such as computational fluid dynamics, computational electromagnetism, and semiconductor device simulations, just to name a few. In this talk we will give a general survey of the DG method, emphasizing its designing principles and main ingredients. We will also describe some of the recent developments in DG methods.

Chi-Wang Shu obtained his BS degree from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1982 and his PhD degree from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1986.
He came to Brown University as an Assistant Professor in 1987, moving up to Associate Professor in 1992 and Full Professor in 1996. He was the Chair of the Division of Applied Mathematics between 1999 and 2005, and is now the Theodore B. Stowell University Professor of Applied Mathematics.
His research interest includes high order finite difference, finite element and spectral methods for solving hyperbolic and other convection dominated partial differential equations, with applications to areas such as computational fluid dynamics, semi-conductor device simulations and computational cosmology.
He served as the Managing Editor of Mathematics of Computation between 2002 and 2012, is now the the Chief Editor of Journal of Scientific Computing and the Co-Chief Editor of Methods and Applications of Analysis, and he currently serves in the editorial boards of 14 other journals. His honors include the First Feng Kang Prize of Scientific Computing in 1995 and the SIAM/ACM Prize in Computational Science and Engineering in 2007. He is an ISI Highly Cited Author in Mathematics, a SIAM Fellow in the inaugural class, and an AMS Fellow in the inaugural class.

• The First Feng Kang Prize of Scientific Computing, 1995.
• SIAM/ACM Prize in Computational Science and Engineering, 2007.
• Fellow of the SIAM, 2009.
• Fellows of the American Mathematical Society, 2012.
