Title:Finite element methods for stationary elliptic interface problems
Seminar:CCMA PDEs and Numerical Methods Seminar Series
Speaker:Sanchez Uribe, Manuel, Brown University
Abstract:
In this talk we will present and discuss novel finite element methods for stationary elliptic interface problems, using discretizations independent of the interface (unfitted meshes). Our work is motivated by well known numerical methods: Immersed Boundary Methods, Immersed Interface Methods, and Nitsche's methods. We will discuss these different directions. We prove optimal error estimates for our finite element methods, independent of the diffusion coefficients. Finally, numerical examples illustrating the performance of our methods are presented corroborating our theoretical findings.
