SMU News Originally Posted: October 26, 2016 DALLAS (SMU) – Early voting for Dallas County residents will be available on the SMU campus Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. The polling place at the Hughes-Trigg Student Center, 3140 Dyer St., will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. both days, and free parking will be available in the Binkley and Moody parking garages to accommodate early voters. “It can be hard for students living on campus to find the time and transportation to get to off-campus polling places on election day, so we’re very pleased the Dallas County Commissioners chose to locate an early-voting site at SMU,” said Brad Cheves, SMU vice president for development and external affairs. “This encourages our students to participate in [...]
Numerical analysis of the Galerkin and weak Galerkin method for the Helmholtz equation with high wave number
Event date: Wednesday, November 2, 2016 Location: Clements Hall 126 Time: 3:30--4:30pm Featured Speaker: Dr. Zhimin Zhang, Department of Mathematics, Wayne State University and the Beijing Center for Computational Science Abstract: We study convergence property of the weak Galerkin method of fixed degree p and supercovergence property of the linear finite element method for the Helmholtz problem with large wave number. Using a modified duality argument, we improve the existing error estimates of the WG method, in particular, the error estimates with explicit dependence on the wave number k are derived, it is shown that if k(kh)p+1 is sufficiently small, then the pollution error in the energy norm is bounded by O(k(kh)2p), which coincides with the phase error of the finite element method obtained by existent dispersion analyses.
