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.

SMU-trained physicist who bolstered Big Bang theory dies at 84

Dallas Morning News Originally Posted: August 31, 2016 James Cronin, a Southern Methodist University graduate who shared a Nobel Prize for explaining why the universe survived the Big Bang, died last Thursday in St. Paul, Minn. He was 84. His death was confirmed by the University of Chicago, where he was a professor emeritus. No cause was given. In 1964, Cronin and Val Fitch of Princeton University were conducting experiments at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island involving matter and antimatter: particles that have the same mass but hold opposite (though equal) charges, either positive or negative, compelling them to destroy each other on contact. The researchers found that for all their similarities, the particles obeyed slightly different laws of physics: that there was, as Cronin put it, [...]

SMU Students Propose Innovation Community For Ex-Fraternity House

Innovate Originally Posted: May 4, 2016 COMMUNITY WOULD FOCUS ON SPURRING IDEAS Ingenuity is not limited to the hours of 9 to 5. Providing a space where students can live and cultivate new ideas at any time of day is the driving force behind a pilot project being proposed by a group of students at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. The living and learning community, dubbed Innovation House or iHouse, would welcome students across all academic disciplines and offer a platform to foster new products and businesses. “The idea is we want to get people that have this raw passion or have a raw desire, and they’re driven enough to create projects and create their own designs,” said Momin Irfan, a freshman finance, computer science, [...]
