    02-28-2017, 11:00 Implementation of discontinuous skeletal methods on arbitrary-dimensional, polytopal meshes using generic programming
    Matteo Cicuttin

    • SEMINAR ON
    • Implementation of discontinuous skeletal methods on arbitrary-dimensional, polytopal meshes using generic programming
    • Matteo Cicuttin , Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussees
    • Tuesday, february 28 2017 at 11:00, Aula Seminari Saleri, VI Piano MOX-Dipartimento di Matematica, Edificio 14, Politecnico di Milano
    • Abstract
      Discontinuous Skeletal methods are devised at the mathematical level in a dimension-independent and cell-shape-independent fashion. Their implementation, at least in principle, should conserve this feature: a single piece of code should be able to work in any space dimension and to deal with any cell shape. It is not common, however, to see software packages taking this approach. In the vast majority of the cases, the codes are capable to run only on few very specific kinds of mesh, or only in 1D or 2D or 3D. On the one hand, this can happen simply because a fully general tool is not always needed. On the other hand, the programming languages commonly used by the scientific computing community (in particular Fortran and Matlab) are not easily amenable to an implementation which is generic and efficient at the same time. The usual (and natural) approach, in conventional languages, is to have different versions of the code, for example one specialized for 1D, one for 2D and one for 3D applications, making the overall maintenance of the codes rather cumbersome. The same considerations generally apply to the handling of mesh cells with various shapes, i.e., codes written in conventional languages generally support only a limited (and set in advance) number of cell shapes. Generic programming offers a valuable tool to address the above issues: by writing the code generically, it is possible to avoid making any assumption neither on the dimension (1D, 2D, 3D) of the problem, nor on the kind of mesh. In some sense, writing generic code resembles writing pseudocode: the compiler will take care of giving the correct meaning to each basic operation. As a result, with generic programming there will be still differents versions of the code, but they will be generated by the compiler, and not by the programmer. As these considerations suggest, generic programming is a static technique: if correctly realized, the abstractions do not penalize the performance at runtime, because they will leave no trace in the generated code. In this talk we will discuss how the Hybrid High Order method is implemented atop of DiSk++, a newly developed library for the generic implementation of Discontinuous Skeletal methods.

    • The nonlinear theory of electromagnetism of born and infeld
    • Denis Bonheure , Université Libre de Bruxelles
    • Wednesday, march 1 2017 at 14:00 precise, Sala Consiglio, 7 piano, Dipartimento di Matematica, Via Bonardi 9, Milano
    • Abstract
      In this talk, I will discuss some questions related to the nonlinear theory of electromagnetism formulated by Born and Infeld in 1934. I will focus on the set of PDEs arising from this theory and mainly on the static regime.

      I will discuss also some links between this theory and the curvature operators in the Euclidean and in the Lorentz-Minkowski space. Finally I will address the solvability of the electrostatic Born-Infeld equation with sources and some related questions.

    • Thursday, march 16 2017 at 11:00, Aula Seminari “Saleri” VI Piano MOX-Dipartimento di Matematica, Edificio 14 POLITECNICO DI MILANO
    • Abstract
      We consider the approximation of linear elliptic variational problems, symmetric for simplicity. According to the Cea’s lemma, conforming Galerkin methods for these problems are quasi-optimal. Conversely, a simple argument reveals that classical nonconforming methods do not enjoy such property. Motivated by this observation, we derive necessary and sufficient conditions for quasi-optimality, within a large class of methods. Moreover, we identify the quasi-optimality constant and discuss its ingredients. In the second part of the talk, we present a detailed construction of two quasi-optimal nonconforming methods for a model problem and show that the corresponding quasi-optimality constants are bounded in terms of the shape parameter of the underlying meshes. This is a joint work with Andreas Veeser.
