A finite-volume (FV) discretization method for the lattice Boltzmann (LB) equation, which combines high accuracy with limited computational cost is presented. In order to assess the performance of the FV method we carry out a systematic comparison, focused on accuracy and computational performances, with the standard streaming lattice Boltzmann equation algorithm. In particular we aim at clarifying whether and in which conditions the proposed algorithm, and more generally any FV algorithm, can… 
Hybrid numerical methods based on the lattice Boltzmann approach with application to non-uniform grids
A novel technique is presented to inject the macroscopic solution of the Navier-Stokes solver into the stream and collide algorithm using a central moment collision and first results on 2D tests cases show that such an algorithm is stable and feasible.

Robustness of heat transfer in confined inclined convection at high Prandtl number.
It is shown that the intensity of the heat flux in the turbulent regime can be only weakly enhanced by establishing a large-scale circulation flow by means of small inclinations, however, in the laminar regime the heat is transported solely by a slow large- scale circulation flow which exhibits large correlations between the velocity and temperature fields.
Similarities between the structure functions of thermal convection and hydrodynamic turbulence
In this paper, we analyze the scaling of velocity structure functions of turbulent thermal convection. Using high-resolution numerical simulations, we show that the structure functions scale similar
A novel low complexity lattice reduction algorithm for MIMO detection
A new low complexity lattice reduction algorithm was proposed, namely, the sorted integer Gauss transformation (SIGT), and it was demonstrated that the proposed SIGT algorithm can achieve almost the bit error rate (BER) performance, while the SIGT requires fewer iterations than the LLL.

The FVLBM scheme is applicable to arbitrarily shaped two-dimensional regions, and thus the range of applicability of the lattice Boltzmann method has been significantly extended.
Lattice Boltzmann Finite Volume Formulation with Improved Stability
The most severe limitation of the standard Lattice Boltzmann Method is the use of uniform Cartesian grids especially when there is a need for high resolutions near the body or the walls. Among the

An explicit finite-difference lattice Boltzmann method for curvilinear coordinates is obtained and is applied to a two-dimensional Poiseuille flow, an unsteady Couette flow, a lid-driven cavity flow, and a steady flow around a circular cylinder.
Shear stress in lattice Boltzmann simulations.
An analytic expression is derived for the time dependence of the fluid density in terms of the Reynolds number, Mach number, and a geometric factor for the case of a Poiseuille flow through a rectangular channel in three dimensions and shows excellent agreement.
