GPU-accelerated discontinuous Galerkin methods on hybrid meshes
(Academic Press Inc Elsevier Science, 2016-08-01)
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 ...
Optimal Control of Drug Therapy in a Hepatitis B Model
Combination antiviral drug therapy improves the survival rates of patients chronically infected with hepatitis B virus by controlling viral replication and enhancing immune responses. Some of these drugs have side effects ...
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 ...
Factors contributing to students and instructors experiencing a lack of time in college calculus
Background: Calculus is a foundational course for STEM-intending students yet has been shown to dissuade students from pursuing STEM degrees. In this report, we examine factors related to students and instructors reporting ...
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 ...
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 ...
A state space error estimate for pod-deim nonlinear model reduction
(Siam Publications, 2012)
This paper derives state space error bounds for the solutions of reduced systems constructed using proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) together with the discrete empirical interpolation method (DEIM) recently developed ...
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 ...
