An introduction to compartmental modeling for the budding infectious disease modeler
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-08-16)
Mathematical models are ubiquitous in the study of the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases, In particular, the classic ‘susceptible-infectious-recovered’ (SIR) paradigm provides a modeling framework that can be ...
Disrupting Mosquito Reproduction and Parasite Development for Malaria Control
The control of mosquito populations with insecticide treated bed nets and indoor residual sprays remains the cornerstone of malaria reduction and elimination programs. In light of widespread insecticide resistance in ...
Glass transition seen through asymptotic expansions
(Siam Publications, 2011)
Soft glassy materials exhibit the so-called glassy transition, which means that the behavior of the model at a low shear rate changes when a certain parameter (which we call the glass parameter) crosses a critical value. ...
Model reduction of descriptor systems by interpolatory projection methods
(Siam Publications, 2013)
In this paper, we investigate an interpolatory projection framework for model reduction of descriptor systems. With a simple numerical example, we first illustrate that directly applying the subspace conditions from the ...
Deformation of a hydrophobic ferrofluid droplet suspended in a viscous medium under uniform magnetic fields
(Cambridge University Press, 2010-11)
The effect of applied magnetic fields on the deformation of a biocompatible hydrophobic ferrofluid drop suspended in a viscous medium is investigated numerically and compared with experimental data. A numerical formulation ...
Numerical Approximations of the Dynamical System Generated by Burgers' Equation with Neumann-Dirichlet Boundary Conditions
(EDP Sciences, 2013-09)
Using Burgers' equation with mixed Neumann-Dirichlet boundary conditions, we highlight a problem that can arise in the numerical approximation of nonlinear dynamical systems on computers with a finite precision floating ...
Using startup of steady shear flow in a sliding plate rheometer to determine material parameters for the purpose of predicting long fiber orientation
(AIP Publishing, 2012-07-01)
The properties of long glass fiber reinforced parts, such as those manufactured by means of injection molding and compression molding, are highly dependent on the fiber orientation generated during processing. A sliding ...
Interpolatory projection methods for parameterized model reduction
(Siam Publications, 2011)
We provide a unifying projection-based framework for structure-preserving interpolatory model reduction of parameterized linear dynamical systems, i.e., systems having a structured dependence on parameters that we wish to ...
NONLINEAR PARAMETRIC INVERSION USING INTERPOLATORY MODEL REDUCTION
