An efficient, high-order, conservative method named the spectral difference method has been developed recently for conservation laws on unstructured grids. It combines the best features of structured and unstructured grid methods to achieve high-computational efficiency and geometric flexibility; it utilizes the concept of discontinuous and high-order local(More)

In this paper, the fourth in a series, the spectral volume (SV) method is extended to multi-dimensional systems – the 2D Euler equations. The focus of this paper is to study the performance of the SV method on multidimensional non-linear systems, and to verify that high order solution accuracy up to fourth-order can be achieved for the systems of(More)
An implicit non-linear lower-upper symmetric Gauss-Seidel (LU-SGS) solution algorithm has been developed for a high-order spectral difference Navier-Stokes solver on unstructured hexahedral grids. The non-linear LU-SGS solver is precondi-tioned by a block element matrix, and the system of equations is then solved with the LU decomposition approach. The(More)
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is one of the most common causes of congenital infection leading to birth defects, and a leading cause of serious illness in patients with impaired cell-mediated immunity. Helper T cell (Th) responses to HCMV proteins are likely to be important in limiting viral replication and preventing disease. Previous studies from this(More)
