DESCRIPTION:Solving large systems efficiently in multiphysics numerical sim
ulations - May 31-June 10\, 2021 - Will be held online\n\nMultiphysics sim
ulations have become an important problem that has practical applications
in many fields in science and engineering. Two examples include (i) simula
ting the interactions between the flow of fluids in the subsurface (e.g. g
roundwater\, oil and natural gas) and the mechanical deformation of the su
rrounding rock due to pressure\, temperature\, etc.\; (ii) simulating the
interactions between the ocean and the atmosphere in meteorological predic
tions and climate modelling. In these and many other applications\, the un
derlying model in each regime is given by partial differential equations (
PDEs)\, which are then discretized and solved many times over the course o
f the simulation. The resulting algebraic systems are typically large (wit
h millions of degrees of freedom)\, sparse (each equation only depends on
a few unknowns) and ill-conditioned (very sensitive to perturbations in th
e data)\, which makes their efficient solution challenging. The past 50 ye
ars have seen the rise of iterative methods and preconditioners that are h
ighly efficient for particular types of PDEs\, such as heat diffusion\, fl
uid flow\, waves arising from electromagnetism\, etc. However\, when diffe
rent physical models interact\, it becomes essential to develop techniques
to solve the coupled problem efficiently\, in addition to the individual
components. The goal of this summer school is to introduce fundamental sol
ver techniques for dealing with these coupled problems. In particular\, we
are interested in techniques that are able to exploit modern supercomputi
ng architecture\, which often have tens of thousands of processors capable
of doing many calculations in parallel.\n\n \n\nThe theoretical portion o
f the summer school consists of three mini-courses that introduce the part
icipants to fundamental techniques for large multiphysics problems: (i) st
ationary iterative methods\, (ii) domain decomposition\, and (iii) multigr
id methods. These mini-courses will be complemented by practical sessions\
, where participants will be guided by well-designed problem sets in order
to experiment with the methods introduced in the mini-courses\, and to ex
plore the mathematics behind these techniques. In addition there will be f
our seminar-style talks by invited speakers\, who will present their work
on multiphysics simulations and/or preconditioning techniques.\n\nThe scho
ol is free of charge\, but registration is mandatory. Due to limited capac
ity\, we can only accept a maximum of 200 participants on a first-come-fir
st-serve basis.\n\n \n\nOrganizers :\n Wing Hong Felix Kwok (Université Lav
