Spectral Element Methods for Anisotropic Diffusion and Incompressible MHD

Speaker: Paul Fischer, Mathematics and Computer Science Division, Argonne National Laboratory


This informal presentation will describe some implementation issues and computational advantages of the spectral element method for transport problems. I will discuss two relatively recent applications, namely, highly anisotropic diffusion and incompressible MHD, touch upon solution strategies for each, and present numerical results.
