Colloquium – Changyou Wang (Purdue University)

Title: Analysis of hydrodynamics of nematic liquid crystals Abstract: The orientation of Liquid crystal molecules has their preferable direction and exhibits an optical structure. Liquid crystal can also been viewed as an intermediate state between the liquid and the solid states. Given the importance, people have studied liquid crystals from the view point of modeling, computation, analysis, and engineering. In […]

Title: Phase field method for geometric moving interface problems and their numerical approximations Abstract:  In this talk I shall first give a brief introduction to the phase field method for general geometric moving interface problems. The focus will be on presenting its idea, formulation,and relationship to other methods for moving interface problems such as the […]

Title: Global solutions of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations Abstract : In this talk, I will talk about the existence of global weak solutions for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations, in particular, the viscosity coefficients depend on the density. Our main contribution is to further develop renormalized techniques so that the Mellet-Vasseur type inequality is not necessary for […]

Title: Weak Solutions of Mean Field Game Master Equations. Abstract: In this talk we study master equations arising from mean field game problems, under the crucial monotonicity conditions. Classical solutions of such equations require very strong technical conditions. Moreover, unlike the master equations arising from mean field control problems, the mean field game master equations are […]

Title: Connections between commutators and weighted inequalities Abstract: I will cover the Cauchy integral approach to the boundedness of commutators of Calderon-Zygmund operators and BMO functions.  I spoke about this approach and proved the basic commutator theorem of Coifman-Rochberg-Weiss in the fall of 2017.  In this talk I will go over some powerful extensions and […]

Colloquium – Jianlin Xia (Purdue University)

Topic:  Fast Solutions of Large Linear Systems and Eigenvalue Problems by Exploring Structures Abstract: Solving large linear systems and eigenvalue problems remains to be the key computational tasks in scientific computing, data processing, and engineering simulations. Practical numerical problems often introduce various structures into the matrix representations. In this talk, we show the existence of […]
