Adaptive Finite Element Methods for Simulations
  Astronomy and astrophysics

Friday 21 March 2014
from 10:30 to 11:30
at FA31
Speaker : Bärbel Janssen (KTH)
Abstract : In this presentation an introduction to Finite Element Methods will be given. We will show the flexibility of this method and show different applications in high performance computing. Even today's computing power does not allow us to uniformly refine the mesh to get a desired accuracy. Adaptive refinement techniques are necessary. We will give an introduction to error estimation to control the adaptive mesh refinement optimally. Furthermore we will present the open source software in which this functionality is implemented.
