    • Abstract
      In un fluido, in assenza di un appoggio solido, la propulsione si ottiene accelerando del fluido in direzione opposta. Questo è quanto fanno le eliche, sia navali sia aeronautiche, che accelerano il fluido nel quale sono immerse. Anche i motori a reazione eiettano soprattutto aria dell’atmosfera. Per i viaggi spaziali, il movimento nel vuoto non subisce resistenze, ma richiede l’utilizzo dei razzi, che devono avere a bordo tutto il fluido che eietteranno. Questo pone dei requisiti molto stringenti alla realizzabilità dei voli, requisiti che vengono analizzati in qualche dettaglio, e che fanno sì che per l’accesso ai pianeti esterni venga utilizzato anche un altro meccanismo, la cosiddetta ‘fionda gravitazionale’.

    • Abstract
      In the close proximity of the liquid-vapour saturation curve and critical point, well-known thermodynamic phenomena including large compressibility and critical point effects results in very unusual fluid dynamics features, including non-ideal or rarefaction shock waves, mixed and split waves. This unconventional behaviour, which cannot occur in the ideal flow of dilute gases, is referred to as Non-Ideal Compressible-Fluid Dynamics or NICFD. The focus of this short lecture is to review the theoretical background of NICFD and to discuss the impact of highly non-ideal conditions on the design and properties of numerical schemes for compressible flows. Exemplary flow fields will be presented and compared to available experimental data from the Test-Rig for Organic VApours (TROVA) of Politecnico di Milano, a unique facility in which supersonic flows in non-ideal conditions can be measured and observed. The present results are obtained within the framework of the ERC Consolidator Grant NSHOCK, of which the presenter is the PI.

    • Abstract
      In this talk we present a problem consisting of modelling and testing for spatial functional data in the context of regression analysis. The motivating data set includes monthly measurements of 5 chemical elements taken from 5 different sites near Brno, Czech Republic. Sampling locations were selected with the purpose of testing if the sites can be divided in two parts, agricultural and forest soil, according to their chemical properties. We propose to treat the measurements taken from each sampling point as functions of time distributed in space. To test for the difference according to the soil type, we develop an interval-wise testing procedure, in a geostatistical framework. We propose to perform the tests on residuals of a spatial linear model with a functional response. We apply the proposed method to the available data and discuss the results from the geological viewpoint.

      We consider entire solutions $u$ to the minimal surface equation in $\R^N$, with $ N\ge8,$ and we prove the following sharp result : if $N-7$ partial derivatives $ \frac{\partial u }{\partial {x_j}}$ are bounded on one side (not necessarily the same), then $u$ is necessarily an affine function.

    • Five decades of time parallel time integration: best current methods for parabolic and hyperbolic problems
    • Giovedì 14 dicembre 2017 alle ore 14:00
    • Aula Consiglio VII Piano – Edificio 14, Dipartimento di Matematica POLITECNICO DI MILANO
    • Abstract
      Time parallel time integration methods have received renewed interest over the last decade because of the advent of massively parallel computers, due to the clock speed limit reached on today’s processors. When solving time dependent partial differential equations, the time direction is usually not used for parallelization. But when parallelization in space saturates, the time direction offers itself as a further direction for parallelization. The time direction is however special, and for evolution problems there is a causality principle: the solution later in time is determined by the solution earlier in time, so the flow of information is just into the direction forward in time. Algorithms trying to use the time direction for parallelization must therefore be special, and take this very different property of the time dimension into account.

      I will show in this talk how time parallel time integration methods were invented over the past five decades, and give a classification into four different groups: methods based on multiple shooting,
      space-time multigrid methods, methods based on domain decomposition and waveform relaxation, and direct time parallel methods. The performance of these methods depends on the nature of the underlying evolution problem, and it turns out that for the first two classes of methods, time parallelization is only really possible for parabolic problems, while the last two classes can also be used to parallelize
      hyperbolic problems in time. I will also explain in more detail one of the methods from each class: the parareal algorithm and a space-time multigrid method, which are currently among the most promising methods for parabolic problems, and a Schwarz waveform relaxation method related to tent-pitching and a direct time parallel method based on diagonalization of the time stepping matrix, which are very effective for hyperbolic problems.

    • Abstract
      This seminar will outline the workflow developed at the Laboratory of Biological Structure Mechanics – LaBS, Politecnico di Milano. (www.labsmech.polimi.it) for the investigation of cardiovascular devices. The combined in vitro and in silico approach will be applied to the study of stenting procedures of peripheral arteries in idealized and patient-specific models as well as to the study of percutaneous aortic valves, where fluid-structure interaction simulations are required. Such examples will demonstrate the extent to which performances of minimally-invasive devices are related to their design, the materials and the applied loads.

      In this talk we review recent results on regularization theory of variational regularization methods, such as Tikhonov regularization, which consists in finding the optimizer of a least functional which is perturbed by a convex functional. In particular we are reviewing new convergence rates results for solving Inverse Problemsin Hilbert Spaces.
      Particular emphasize will be given to analyze and interpret the abstract results for photoacoustic imaging and inversion of the spherical mean operator.

    • Abstract
      Personalised models of cardiac mechanics have evolved into a powerful tool for studying the human heart in health and disease. Combining detailed information on the heart kinematics extracted from medical images, with mathematical models of cardiac function, patient-specific models provide a mathematical representation of individual hearts. As model parameters are linked to intrinsic tissue properties such as stiffness and contractility, unique and accurate parameter estimates are a prerequisite for the potential translation of personalised models to the clinic.

      In parallel, magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) has evolved into a powerful tool for interrogating material stiffness. MRE has been exploited in the liver, breast, and brain using measured periodic waves to extract material stiffness properties. Transducing waves via external vibrations, MRE provides a more direct measure of the characteristics of tissues and their potential diseases. Integrating this work into the heart is complicated by a myriad of challenges including the inherent cardiac motion of the heart, evolving material properties due to the contractile state of the muscle, and the nonlinear effects of deformation on the apparent stiffness of the material.

      In this talk, we discuss the merger of these two worlds, bridging between the nearly quasi-static model-based assessment of heart function and the high frequency wave-based assessment. In particular, we discuss the simple influence of deformation on apparent stiffness, explaining both from the realm of traditional wave mechanics and biomechanical theory.

    • Abstract
      The numerical simulation of physiological and biomechanics processes allows for a better understanding of many internal mechanism of the human body. For example stresses in joints or the activation sequence of the human heart can be computed “in silico”, thus providing the possibility to develop new therapies or to assist physician in diagnosis and therapy. In order to get close to realistic medical applications, or even to a clinical setting, several difficulties have to be addressed. These contain the efficient simulation of coupled and non-linear partial differential equations, the choice of the appropriate models, and, last but not least, the personalization of the simulation by means of, e.g., parameter fitting or uncertainty quantification. In this talk, we give an overview in numerical techniques in biomechanics and cardiology, including contact problems, the electro-mechanical activation of the human heart, and fluid-structure interaction in heart valves.
