Title: Computational methods for the shallow water equations and their applications in computational hydrology.
Speaker: Yulong Xing (The Ohio State University)
Abstract: Shallow water equations (SWEs) have been widely used to model flows in rivers and coastal areas, with applications arising from ocean, hydraulic engineering, and atmospheric modeling. Development of efficient and accurate numerical algorithms for SWEs has been an active research area in the past few decades. In this presentation, we will talk about some high order numerical methods for such model, and their applications in computational hydrology.
Note: The goal of Welcome Seminar is to give an opportunity to new postdoctoral fellows and tenure track professors to introduce themselves to their colleagues. The talks are intended to be non-technical and accessible to graduate students as well. Please plan to attend and encourage your graduate students to do so as well. The talk will be preceded by a colloquium-style reception at 4:00, in the area adjacent to Cockins Hall 240 on the second floor of the Math Building.
