Maple : a comprehensive introduction by Roy A Nicolaides( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Knowledge of one or more high level symbolic mathematics programs is rapidly becoming a necessity for mathematics users from all fields of science. The aim of this book is to provide a solid grounding in Maple, one of the best known of these programs. The authors have sought to combine efficiency and economy of exposition with a full coverage of Maple. The book has twelve chapters, of which eight are completely accessible to anyone who has completed the usual calculus and linear sequences as taught in American universities. There are three chapters on Maple programming. These can be read without prior programming experience, but a knowledge of a high-level programming language (Basic, Fortran, C, etc.) will be helpful. There is also a chapter on some relevant aspects of abstract algebra. Although complete in its coverage of Maple, there is no "fat" in the book. Above all, the book is designed to enable the reader to extract value from Maple without wasting time and effort in the learning process. It provides a fast track to Maple expertise
Incompressible computational fluid dynamics : trends and advances by Max D Gunzburger( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Incompressible computational fluid dynamics is an emerging and important discipline, with numerous applications in industry and science. Its methods employ rigourous mathematical analysis far beyond what is presently possible for compressible flows. Vortex methods, finite elements, and spectral methods are emphasised. Contributions from leading experts in the various sub-fields portray the wide-ranging nature of the subject. The book provides an entrée into the current research in the field. It can also serve as a source book for researchers and others who require information on methods and techniques
Divergence boundary conditions for vector helmholtz equations with divergence constraints by Urve Kangro( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of replacing a divergence constraint by a divergence boundary condition is investigated. The connections between the formulations are considered in detail. It is shown that the most common methods of using divergence boundary conditions do not always work properly. Necessary and sufficient conditions for the equivalence of the formulations are given
Spurious fields in time domain computations of scattering problems by Urve Kangro( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper two dimensional electromagnetic scattering problems with a time periodic incident field are considered. The scatterer is a perfect conductor, and an artificial boundary condition is used. The large time behavior of solutions, depending on (divergence free) initial conditions, is characterized. It turns out that in addition to the expected time-periodic solution the limiting solution may also contain a spurious stationary field. The source of the stationary field is explained and equations describing it are obtained. Several avoidance strategies are discussed, and numerical comparisons of these techiques are given
Computational electromagnetics and its applications by Thomas G Campbell( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication documents the proceedings of the first Workshop on Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) and Applications, hosted by the Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineering (ICASE) and the NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, Virginia, 29-31 May, 1996, and attended by approximately 70 people from academia, government laboratories, and industry. ICASE's charter mission in 1972 remains today - to explore novel computer environments (vector in the 1970s; parallel in the 1990s) for scientific computing. These proceedings provide a necessary foundation for symposia in computational electromagnetics for future aerospace applications. <br/> The objectives of this CEM Workshop were to provide a forum for many of the leaders of the community to assess the state of CEM technology and to discuss areas of research for future programmatic planning activities. Workshop sessions included topics on optimization, industrial applications, algorithms, and a special panel session was provided during which issues were discussed and future research areas were identified. Hopefully, this publication will stimulate and improve communication among multidisciplinary researchers as well as highlighting several CEM areas that need improvement - especially for highly challenging problems. The two most important criteria in the selection of speakers for the workshop were their substantial contribution to large-scale CEM problems and their ability to articulate the issues confronting the CEM research community. Based on the results obtained, it is anticipated that this publication will be useful to government, industry, and university researchers to plan future research tasks in CEM analytical methods and applications
Covolume solutions of three dimensional div-curl equations : contract NAS1-19480 by Roy A Nicolaides( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Delaunay-Voronoi mesh systems provide a generalization of the classical rectangular staggered meshes to unstructured meshes. In this work it is shown how such covolume discretizations may be applied to div-curl systems in three dimensions. Error estimates are proved and confirmed by a numerical illustration. (AN)

Direct discretization of planar div-curl problems by Roy A Nicolaides( Book )

5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A control volume method is proposed for planar div-curl systems. The method is independent of potential and least squares formulations, and works directly with the div-curl system. The novelty of the technique lies in its use of a single local vector field component and two control volumes rather than the other way round. A discrete vector field theory comes quite naturally from this idea and is developed in the paper. Error estimates are proved for the method, and other ramifications investigated. (JHD)

Analysis and convergence of the MAC scheme. 1. The linear problem by Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineering( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The MAC (Market and Cell) discretization of fluid flow is analyzed for the stationary Stokes equations. It is proved that the discrete approximations do in fact converge to the exact solutions of the flow equations. Estimates using mesh dependent norms analogous to the standard H sub 1 and L sub 2 norms are given for the velocity and pressure respectively

Interim Technical Report, 1 June 1982-31 May 1983, Grant AFOSR-82-0213( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During this period, research continued in the area of numerical solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. In particular, the following topics have been addressed: (1) The question of achieving stable discretizations of the imcompressibility constraint; (2) The problem of obtaining accurate solutions in the limit of large Reynolds numbers; and (3) Devising efficient numerical solution algorithms for solving the nonlinear algebraic systems of equations arisings from the discretization step. A necessary condition for convergence of the discrete approximation was obtained. A major result achieved has been to show that many often used low order element pairs are, in fact, unstable in the sense of this criterion. In addition, new simple low order element pairs were introduced and proved to be stable. Concerning the second topic noted above, the investigator has taken an approach based on the idea that h (the discretization parameter) needs to be small only in certain locations, namely in boundary layers. Finally, solving the algebraic systems which arise from the discretization remains a major difficulty. Two new approaches have been developed, one dependent on time marching to the steady state limit, and the other based on an adaptation of a method used in structural mechanics to the fluids case. Four new scientific papers have been generated in the report period, to be published in the referred literature. (Author)

Computational Methods for Microstructure Covolume Techniques of Discretization( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This work covers one of the basic computational issues in materials science, which is that of devising algorithms for computing microstructure. Finite element discretizations are used to approximate a standard energy density functional. Grid effects are found to affect the solutions in some cases and suitable remedies are investigated. Covolume methods are a second topic of research. Three dimensional error estimates are obtained. A new and optimal Voronoi-Delaunay mesh generator is given. Microstructure computations, covolume methods, Voronoi-Delaunay meshes
New Techniques and Applications for Computational Electromagnetics( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Several different aspects of numerical methods for electromagnetic scattering are considered. The interior source method is one major focus of the research. It is shown how the scattered field can be extended to the interior of a scatterer with a view to determining the locations of singular points of the extended field. These results are of immediate use to synthesize the scattered field. The interior source method has been applied to solving a number of scattering problems, mostly but not exclusively from smooth bodies. Spectral convergence of the approximations has been demonstrated and this permits far fewer unknowns to be used in the computation than would be the case with methods in which the sources are distributed on the boundary of the scattering body. A second topic of research concerns the finite difference time domain technique (FDTD). For this method a new approach to handling complex geometrical situations has been developed. This approach uses at least squares technique in conjunction with a novel but simple form of description of the boundary of the body. It converges at or close to a rate of second order in the spatial variables in contrast to a number of other algorithms designed to solve the same problem
New discretization and solution techniques for incompressible viscous flow problems by Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineering( Book )

New Techniques in Computational Fluid Dynamics: Algorithms, Analysis, Applications( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The overall goal of this research was the development and application of covolume methodology in CFD and related areas. The main framework of the covolume approach is now in place and its major characteristics are reasonably well understood. The research shows the algorithm to be a stable and accurate approach to computing viscous fluids on unstructured meshes. The covolume approach has several unique features, including an associated discrete vector field theory, which in turn permits covolume discretizations to exhibit important physical characteristics, for example being free of artificial vorticity creation. There is still need for work in compressible and three dimensional flows
