Colloquium – Xiaobing Feng, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

October 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

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 level set method.The second part of the talk will devote to discussing some latest advances in developing efficient numerical methods for solving phase field models.…

Colloquium – Changyou Wang (Purdue University)

November 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

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 this talk, I will focus on the hydrodynamics of nematic liquid crystals, namely the Ericksen-Leslie system in conjunction with the (static) Oseen-Frank theory. The governing equation can…
