The Stratified Ocean Model with Adaptive Refinement (SOMAR)

Improving parallel scalability for edge plasma transport simulations with neutral gas species

A new preconditioner is presented, termed FieldSplit, which exploits the character of the neutral equations to improve the scalability of the combined plasma/neutral system.

From Topographic Internal Gravity Waves to Turbulence

Internal gravity waves are a key process linking the large-scale mechanical forcing of the oceans to small-scale turbulence and mixing. In this review, we focus on internal waves generated by

Near-Bottom Turbulence and Sediment Resuspension Induced by Nonlinear Internal Waves

Abstract : The transition to fully turbulence under fully nonlinear internal solitary waves (NLIWs) has been investigated. Very well resolved Large Eddy Simulations (LES) of the separated bottom



Fourier Analysis of Iterative Methods for Elliptic pr

A Fourier method for analyzing stationary iterative methods and preconditioners for discretized elliptic boundary value problems is presented, which essentially reproduce those of classical convergence and condition number analysis for problems with other boundary conditions, such as the Dirichlet problem.

Accurate projection methods for the incompressible Navier—Stokes equations

Abstract This paper considers the accuracy of projection method approximations to the initial–boundary-value problem for the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations. The issue of how to correctly

Preserving monotonicity in anisotropic diffusion


The conclusion is that the well-known Modified Incomplete Cholesky factorization (MIC) and the polynomial preconditioning based on the Chebyshev polynomials have optimal order of convergence as applied to matrix systems derived by discretization of the Poisson equation.

On the transient non-Fickian dispersion theory

The Fickian dispersion equation is the basic relationship used to describe the nonconvective mass flux of a solute in a porous medium. This equation prescribes a linear relationship between the
