    • A prescribed anisotropic mean curvature equation modeling the corneal shape: a paradigm of nonlinear analysis
    • Martedì 2 luglio 2019 alle ore 15:15
    • Aula seminari 3° piano
    • Abstract
      In this talk, we survey some recent results concerning the Dirichlet problem for the prescribed anisotropic mean curvature equation
      \begin{equation*}
      {\rm -div}\left({\nabla u}/{\sqrt{1 + |\nabla u|^2}}\right) = -au + {b}/{\sqrt{1 + |\nabla u|^2}},
      \end{equation*}
      in a bounded Lipschitz domain $\Omega \subset \RR^N$, with $a,b>0$ parameters.
      This equation appears in the description of the geometry of the human cornea, as well as in the modeling theory of capillarity phenomena for compressible fluids.

      In this talk, we show how various techniques of nonlinear functional analysis can successfully be applied to derive a complete picture of the solvability patterns of the problem.

    • A scalable computational framework for large-scale simulation of fluid-driven fracture propagation
    • Venerdì 5 luglio 2019 alle ore 14:00
    • aula Saleri VI piano
    • Abstract
      Fluid-driven crack propagation concerns several areas of engineering, including structural, geotechnical, and petroleum engineering. The development of simulation tools for pressurized cracks propagating in realistic scenarios needs to tackle the complexity arising from the non-linear hydro-mechanical coupling of the fluid and the cracked solid in a suitable framework for large-scale applications.
      In this talk, I will introduce the governing equations of hydraulic fracture and discuss well-known propagation regimes where the prob- lem can be treated analytically. I will then present a computational ap- proach to model the hydro-mechanical coupling of the fracturing solid and the fluid flow inside the propagating cracks. Benchmarks in 2D and 3D demonstrate the capability of the computational framework to successfully deal with a priori unknown and arbitrarily intricate crack paths, and with the need for large-scale simulations.
      Time permitting, I will describe other recent efforts in developing advanced computational algorithms for large-scale simulation of complex material response, including elastic instabilities and material failure.

    • Giovedì 11 luglio 2019 alle ore 14:00
    • Aula consiglio VII piano, Edificio 14, Dipartimento di Matematica POLITECNICO DI MILANO
    • Abstract
      In this talk we will discuss preconditioning algorithms for monolithic schemes of coupled problems involving the coupling of porous and viscous flow as well as fluid-structure interaction and dimension reduction problems.
      We explore how fractional Laplacian solvers may be utilized to obtain parameter robust schemes. The schemes are discussed in the context of biomechanical modelling of the waste clearance processes in the brain that is believed to fail in various forms of dementia such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.

    • Kent - Andre  Mardal
      Kent-Andre Mardal is a Professor at the University of Oslo and an adjuct researcher at Simula Research Laboratory. His research focus is on computational methods for life-science applications, where focus areas are robust multi-physics algorithms, high-performance preconditioning techniques, generic scientific software components, the microcirculation and metabolism of the brain, the cause of dementia such as Alzheimer’s disease and normal pressure hydrocephalus, and multi-dimensional coupling problems. Mardal has made core contributions to the FEniCS software library, the operator preconditioning technique, demonstrated transitional flow at low Reynolds number in blood flow and made crucial observations concerning the g-lymphatic system potentially involved in Alzheimer´s disease development.

    • Abstract
      In this talk, I will discuss our recent advances in understanding phenotypic plasticity of cancer cells using a combination of experiments, analysis of big data and computational models of complex regulatory networks. Next, I will discuss our results on protein aggregation in neurodegenerative pathologies, such as Alzheimer's and Huntington's disease.

      In particular, I will report on the importance of protein clearance from the endoplasmic reticulum to drive protein aggregation and on our recent results on huntingtin heterogenous aggregation in which mutated forms of the protein are able to form oligomers with non-mutated forms.
