    • Abstract
      Current technology for decelerating a spacecraft from the high speed of atmospheric entry to the final stages of landing on Mars is based on parachute systems and dates back to NASA’s Viking Program. To enable future exploration missions featuring sophisticated robots and safely land heavier spacecraft on Mars, it must be advanced to a new level of performance at supersonic speeds. For this purpose, larger than before high-speed parachutes and inflatable drag devices are needed. Recently, it has become clear that the design, development, and maturing of such devices for future use at Mars cannot be performed by relying only on flight tests. It requires guidance from predictive simulations based on a high-fidelity, multi-disciplinary computational model for parachute inflation dynamics (PID) and drag prediction. The development of such a model is a formidable challenge. It must be able to predict various instabilities of a parachute such as flutter and pulsation, and assess the influence on its performance of several factors including material and geometric porosities, and the influence of temperature and strain rate on the stress field experienced in the supersonic regime. This lecture will discuss an ongoing effort at Stanford University, in collaboration with NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, for the development of such a computational model and some associated computational innovations. These include: a computationally tractable, data-driven framework for nonlinear, dynamic, multiscale modeling of membrane woven fabrics; a discrete-event-free, spurious-oscillation-free, and total variation diminishing embedded (immersed) boundary method for highly nonlinear fluid-structure interaction problems; a homogenization approach with subgrid scale modeling for treating porous wall boundary conditions; an energy-conserving, second-order accurate approach for enforcing transmission conditions at the interface between fluid and structural representations of disparate spatial dimensions; and a fast, massively parallel, load-balanced, adaptive mesh refinement methodology for tracking wall boundaries, boundary layers, and flow features such as shocks and wakes in an embedding domain. The lecture will report on some validation results for the simulation of the supersonic inflation dynamics of the parachute that landed Curiosity Rover on August 6, 2012. It will also highlight outstanding mathematical and numerical challenges associated with the simulation of PID from an initial condition where the parachute geometry is at bag strip, and with time-step restrictions induced by rapidly evolving fluid/structure interfaces.

    • Abstract
      The importance of electrolyte concentrations for the cardiac function is well established. Electrolyte variations can lead to arrhythmias onset, due to their important role in the action potential (AP) genesis and in maintaining cell homeostasis. However, most of the human AP computer models available in the literature were developed with constant electrolyte concentrations, and fail to simulate physiological changes induced by electrolyte variations. This is especially true for Ca2+, even in the most widely used models in cardiac electrophysiology.

      The new human ventricular model (BPS2020, [1]), based on O’Hara-Rudy (ORd, [2]) model, aims to correct simulate changes due to electrolytes and answer the question: "which are the quantitative contributions of the mechanisms involved in the relationship between extracellular calcium concentration [Ca2+]o and the AP?"[3], using human-based modeling and simulations since they could provide useful support to investigate this phenomenon.

      From earlier studies, it is well known that the L-type Ca2+ current (ICaL) is the ionic current mainly affected by [Ca2+]o changes. In particular, calcium-dependent inactivation (CDI) seems to play the most significant role. For this reason, the main changes needed with respect to ORd are: (i) increased sensitivity of ICaL current inactivation to [Ca2+]o; (ii) a single compartment description of the sarcoplasmic reticulum; iii) the replacement of Ca2+ release.

      BPS2020 can simulate the physiological APD-[Ca2+]o relationship, while also retaining the well-reproduced properties of ORd (APD rate dependence at [K+]o=4mM, restitution, accommodation, and current block effects). We also used BPS2020 to generate an experimentally-calibrated population of models to investigate: (i) the occurrence of repolarization abnormalities in response to hERG current block; (ii) the rate adaptation variability; (iii) the occurrence of alternans and delayed after-depolarizations at fast pacing. Our results indicate that we successfully developed an improved version of ORd, which can be used to investigate electrophysiological changes and pro-arrhythmic abnormalities induced by electrolyte variations and current block at multiple rates and at population level.

    • Abstract
      Plateau problem consists in finding a surface of minimal area among the ones spanning a given curve. It is among the oldest problem in the calculus of variations and its study lead to wonderful development in mathematics.
      Federer and Fleming integral currents provide a suitably weak solution to the Plateau problem in arbitrary Riemannian manifolds, in any dimension and
      co-dimension. Once this week solution has been found a natural question consists in understanding whether it is classical one. i.e. a smooth minimal surface. This is the topic of the regularity theory, which naturally splits into interior regularity and boundary regularity.
      After the monumental work of Almgren, revised by De Lellis and Spadaro, interior regularity is by now well understood. Boundary regularity is instead less clear and some new phenomena appear.
      Aim of the talk is to give an overview of the problem and to present some boundary regularity results we have obtained in the last years.

    • Mercoledì 17 marzo 2021 alle ore 17:00
    • On line
    • Abstract
      We establish several invariant boundary versions of the (infinitesimal) Schwarz-Pick lemma for conformal pseudometrics on the unit disk and for holomorphic selfmaps of strongly convex domains in CN in the spirit of the boundary Schwarz lemma of Burns-Krantz.

      Firstly, we focus on the case of the unit disk and prove a general boundary rigidity theorem for conformal pseudometrics with variable curvature. In its simplest cases this result already includes new types of boundary versions of the lemmas of Schwarz-Pick, Ahlfors-Schwarz and Nehari-Schwarz. The proof is based on a new Harnack-type inequality as well as a boundary Hopf lemma for conformal pseudometrics which extend earlier interior rigidity results of Golusin, Heins, Beardon, Minda and others. Secondly, we prove similar rigidity theorems for sequences of conformal pseudometrics, which even in the interior case appear to be new. For instance, a first sequential version of the strong form of Ahlfors' lemma is obtained.

      As an auxiliary tool we establish a Hurwitz-type result about preservation of zeros of sequences of conformal pseudometrics.

      Thirdly, we apply the one-dimensional sequential boundary rigidity results together with a variety of techniques from several complex variables to prove a boundary version of the Schwarz-Pick lemma for holomorphic maps of strongly convex domains in $\C^N$ for $N>1$.
