Title:Numerical methods for parameter investigations in nonlinear systems
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Wenrui Hao, Ohio State University
Parameters are important for mathematical models in physics and biology. In this talk, I will present some recent numerical methods on parameter study of nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs). These numerical methods include homotopy continuation, bootstrapping and reduced basis methods. They make use of polynomial systems (with thousands of variables) arising by discretization, and can be used to compute multiple solutions as well as bifurcation points. This talk will also cover the applications of these numerical methods to several biological models including atherosclerosis where the critical parameters are the LDL and HDL serum concentration, and blood clotting model where high dimensional parameters are explored.
