DESCRIPTION:Title: Var
iational solutions to the total variation ﬂow on metric measure spaces\nby Cintia Pacchiano (Aalto University Helsinki) as part of EDDy weekly
seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk I will discuss some aspects of the po
tential theory\, ﬁne properties and boundary behaviour of the solutions
to the Total Variation Flow. Instead of the classical Euclidean setting\,
we intend to work mostly in the general setting of metric measure spaces.
During the past two decades\, a theory of Sobolev functions and BV functio
ns has been developed in this abstract setting. A central motivation for d
eveloping such a theory has been the desire to unify the assumptions and m
ethods employed in various speciﬁc spaces\, such as weighted Euclidean s
paces\, Riemannian manifolds\, Heisenberg groups\, graphs\, etc. The total
variation ﬂow can be understood as a process diminishing the total vari
ation using the gradient descent method. This idea can be reformulated usi
ng parabolic minimizers\, and it gives rise to a deﬁnition of variationa
l solutions. The advantages of the approach using a minimization formulati
on include much better convergence and stability properties. This is a ver
y essential advantage as the solutions naturally lie only in the space of
BV functions. Our main goal is to give a necessary and suﬃcient conditio
n for continuity at a given point for proper solutions to the total variat
ion ﬂow in metric spaces. \n\nThis is joint work with Vito Buﬀa and Ju
ha Kinnunen.\n

t\nFocussing on models of springy wires\, we study framed curves whose evo
lution is driven both by the bending energy and the twisting energy. The l
atter tracks the rotation of the frame about the centerline of the curve.
In order to prevent topology changes during the evolution\, we add a self
‐avoiding term\, namely the tangent‐point energy. We discuss the discr
etization of this model and present some numerical simulations. \n\nThis i

DESCRIPTION:Title: On
the correction to Einstein's formula for the effective viscosity\nby A
mina Mecherbet (Sorbonne Université Paris) as part of EDDy weekly seminar
\n\n\nAbstract\nWe consider the problem of the derivation of an effective
model for viscous dilute suspensions. A previous work by D. Gérard-Varet
and M. Hillairet showed that\, if a second order Stokes effective approxim
ation exists then the mean value of the second order correction for the ef
fective viscosity is given by a mean-field limit that can be studied and c
omputed under further assumptions on the particle configurations. We exten
d this result by identifying the second order correction in the general ca
se and show the convergence to the limit effective model as soon as the me
an field limit exists. In particular we recover the mean-field analysis co
nsidered by D. Gérard-Varet and M. Hillairet in their paper for the homog
eneous case of periodic and random stationary particle configurations. \n\

DESCRIPTION:Title: K-c
onvergence of numerical solutions of the Euler equations\nby Mária Lu
kácová-Medvidová (Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz) as part of EDDy
weekly seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nI present our recent results on the converge
nce analysis of suitable finite volume methods for multidimensional Euler
equations. We have shown that a sequence of numerical solutions converges
weakly to a weak dissipative solution. The analysis requires only the cons
istency and stability of a numerical method and can be seen as a generaliz
ation of the famous Lax-equivalence theorem for nonlinear problems. The we
ak-strong uniqueness principle implies the strong convergence of numerical
solutions to the classical solution as long as it exists.\n\nOn the other
hand\, if the classical solution does not exist we apply the so-called K-
convergence and show how to compute effectively the observable quantities
of a space-time parametrized measure generated by numerical solutions. Con
sequently\, we derive the strong convergence of the empirical averages of
numerical solutions to a weak dissipative solution. If time permits I will
illustrate a connection to the concept of statistical convergence.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Sym
plectic Field Theory and topological entropy in Hamiltonian systems\nb
y Umberto Hryniewicz (RWTH Aachen University) as part of EDDy weekly semin
ar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe concept of topological entropy plays a central role
in the modern theory of Dynamical Systems. Originally introduced by Adler\
, Konheim and McAndrew in 1960’s\, it was later reformulated and clarifi
ed by work of Rufus Bowen. It has roots in the work of Kolmogorov and Sina
i. Positive topological entropy is usually taken as the mathematical defin
ition of (topological) chaos\, in fact fundamental results of Katok imply
that\, in low dimensions\, positive topological entropy forces the presenc
e of horseshoes.\n\nAfter discussing this circle of ideas\, the goal of th
is talk will be to understand how variational methods can be used to detec
t positive topological entropy in Hamiltonian systems. The prototypical ex
ample is that of a geodesic flow on a negatively curved surface. In a seco
nd step we will discuss how sophisticated variational methods - which go u
nder the umbrella of Symplectic Field Theory and are based on elliptic PDE
s - can be used to generalise the same kind of results to larger classes o
f Hamiltonian systems.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Cu
rvature Bounds for Mean Curvature Flow of Complete Graphical Hypersurfaces
\nby Wolfgang Maurer (Universität Konstanz) as part of EDDy weekly se
minar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe investigate mean curvature flow of complete graphi
cal hypersurfaces. These are complete hypersurfaces that can be written as
graphs of functions defined on (bounded) domains and going to infinity at
the boundary for completeness. We discuss two different curvature bounds
for these flows\, one that works below some arbitrary height and one that
works above a certain height and is dependent on the enveloping cylinder.
We demonstrate what makes a uniform curvature bound difficult. Moreover\,
we give an example that behaves quite badly\, illustrating issues that ari
se in this context. Lastly\, we touch upon how one can obtain curvature bo
unds beyond singularities in the mean convex case.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Si
ngularities of Lagrangian Mean Curvature Flow\nby Albert Wood (Univers
ity College London) as part of EDDy weekly seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nAfter Ri
cci flow\, the mean curvature flow of submanifolds in a Riemannian manifol
d is perhaps the most natural and famous geometric flow\, describing the g
radient descent for the volume functional. It was therefore an exciting di
scovery when Knut Smoczyk demonstrated that in an ambient Ricci-flat Kähl
er manifold\, the class of Lagrangian submanifolds is preserved under the
flow. This phenomenon is now referred to as Lagrangian mean curvature flow
.\n\nLagrangian mean curvature flow has since been shown to have propertie
s and behaviour distinct from that of mean curvature flow in general. In t
his talk I will focus on the singular behaviour of the flow\, highlight th
e differences and similarities to the general case\, and bring attention t
o some open conjectures in the field.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Ca
nham-Helfrich energy and geometric measure theory\nby Sascha Eichmann
(University Tübingen) as part of EDDy weekly seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nHelfr
ich (1973) and Canham (1970) introduced the following geometric curvature
energy to model the shape of human red blood cells. The idea is that the t
wo dimensional boundary layer $\\Sigma\\subset\\mathbb{R}^3$ of such a cel
l minimises\n$$\n \\int_\\Sigma |H-H_0|^2\\\, dA\n$$\nunder suitable const
raints on e.g. the enclosed volume and surface area. Here $H$ is the scala
r mean curvature of $\\Sigma$ and $H_0\\in\\mathbb{R}$ is a parameter call
ed the spontaneous curvature\, which represents an asymmetry in the bounda
ry layer of the cell. This induces a prefered curvature of the cell.\nIf t
his asymmetry is not desired\, i.e. $H_0=0$\, this Canham-Helfrich energy
becomes a variant of the famous Willmore energy.\nTo show existence of suc
h a minimiser\, we will implement the direct method of the calculus of var
iations. Compactness for a minimising sequence under varifold convergence
can be easily obtained. Unfortunately lower-semicontinuity of the Helfrich
energy under this varifold convergence is in general not correct by a cou
nterexample of Große-Brauckmann (1993). Nevertheless we can actually show
a lower-semicontinuity estimate for the minimising sequence itself.\nThro
ughout the talk we will highlight the main tools used from geometric measu
re theory. We explain these in some detail and how they are applied to our
problem.\nIn the last part of the talk we will discuss some directions fo
r future research in this area\, i.e. some open problems and some modifica
tions to the Canham-Helfrich energy itself.\n

nsider isometric immersions of 3-dimensional domains into $\\mathbb{R}^3$
at low regularity regimes\, in particular in the case of a flat domain. A
notion of second fundamental form can be defined when only $1/2$-fractiona
l derivatives of the Gauss map are well-controlled. Through an Analysis of
the Codazzi system which - in a sense - survives at $2/3$-fractional diff
erentiability\, we can pass to a degenerate Monge-Ampère equation and ext
ract valuable geometric information about the rigidity of these isometric
immersions. Time permitting\, we will discuss a conjecture of Gromov in th
is regard and some connected problems in nonlinear analysis and geometric

DESCRIPTION:Title: Ad
aptive multiresolution discontinuous Galerkin schemes for conservation law
s\nby Siegfried Müller (RWTH Aachen University) as part of EDDy weekl
y seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nSince the solution of hyperbolic conservation law
s typically exhibits discontinuities\, efficient numerical schemes will em
ploy locally refined discretizations that dynamically adapt to the solutio
n. To trigger grid refinement and coarsening an appropriate indicator is n
eeded. Due to the lack of a stable variational formulation for the problem
at hand\, we apply a multiresolution analysis (MRA) based on multiwavelet
s to perform data compression. The MRA is combined with a standard discont
inuous Galerkin (DG) scheme to end up with an adaptive DG scheme. The fram
ework of both the MRA and the DG scheme will be presented in some detail.
The performance of the resulting scheme will be discussed by means of nume
rous testcases in 1D and 2D for scalar as well as systems of conservation
laws. We conclude with a brief outlook how to employ the adaptive framewor
k for the investigation of stochastic conservation laws.\n

field model where its free-energy density depends on second gradients of t
he phase field. To exemplify the usefulness of our theory\, we generalize
two commonly used phase-field equations. We propose a generalized Swift–
Hohenberg equation-a second-grade phase-field equation-and its conserved v
ersion\, the generalized phase-field crystal equation-a conserved second-g
rade phase-field equation. Furthermore\, we derive the configurational fie

Newtonian forces to describe the kinetics and kinematics of manifolds. We

problem is much better behaved than the primal problem. This allows to ef
ficiently run large scale gradient flows simulations for a large class of
internal energies including singular and non-convex energies. \n\nThis is

tropy satisfying multi well-balanced schemes for shallow water type system
s\nby François Bouchut (Université Gustave Eiffel\, Marne-la-Vallée
) as part of EDDy weekly seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nMany systems of shallow wa
ter type arise in the modeling of thin layer flows. The sources can take s
everal forms\, and for each of them the question of building a well-balanc
ed scheme comes out. We are interested here in the case when it is require
d to build a numerical scheme that preserves two nontrivial families of st
eady states at rest. Such a scheme can be called multi well-balanced. In o
rder to apply the reconstruction method one has to manage with the two fam
ilies at the same time. I will show how it can be possible while at the sa
me time verifying a semi-discrete entropy inequality. Two examples of entr
opy satisfying multi well-balanced schemes will be given: the shallow wate
r MHD system with topography\, and a shallow water system with internal va
riable and topography.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On
the sticky particle solutions to the pressureless Euler system in general
dimension\nby Sara Daneri (Gran Sasso Science Institute\, l'Aquila) a
s part of EDDy weekly seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk we consider the
pressureless Euler system in dimension greater than or equal to two. Sever
al works have been devoted to the search of solutions which satisfy the fo
llowing adhesion or sticky particle principle: if two particles of the flu
id do not interact\, then they move freely keeping constant velocity\, oth
erwise they join with velocity given by the balance of momentum. For initi
al data given by a finite number of particles pointing each in a given dir
ection\, in general dimension\, it is easy to show that a global sticky pa
rticle solution always exists and is unique. In dimension one\, sticky par
ticle solutions have been proved to exist and be unique. In dimension grea
ter or equal than two\, it was shown that as soon as the initial data is n
ot concentrated on a finite number of particles\, it might lead to non-exi
stence or non-uniqueness of sticky particle solutions.\n\nIn collaboration
with S. Bianchini\, we show that even though the sticky particle solution
s are not well-posed for every measure-type initial data\, there exists a
comeager set of initial data in the weak topology giving rise to a unique
sticky particle solution. Moreover\, for any of these initial data the sti
cky particle solution is unique also in the larger class of dissipative so
lutions (where trajectories are allowed to cross) and is given by a trivia
l free flow concentrated on trajectories which do not intersect. In partic
ular for such initial data there is only one dissipative solution and its
dissipation is equal to zero. Thus\, for a comeager set of initial data th
e problem of finding sticky particle solutions is well-posed\, but the dyn
amics that one sees is trivial. Our notion of dissipative solution is lagr
angian and therefore general enough to include weak and measure-valued sol
utions.\n

ajectorial Otto calculus\nby Walter Schachermayer (University of Vienn
a) as part of EDDy weekly seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe revisit the variationa
l characterization of diffusion as entropic gradient flux\, established by
Jordan\, Kinderlehrer\, and Otto in [1]\, and provide for it a probabilis
tic interpretation based on stochastic calculus. It was shown in [1] that\
, for diffusions of Langevin-Smoluchowski type\, the Fokker-Planck probabi
lity density flow minimizes the rate of relative entropy dissipation\, as
measured by the distance traveled in the ambient space of probability meas
ures with finite second moments\, in terms of the quadratic Wasserstein me
tric. We obtain novel\, stochastic-process versions of these features\, va
lid along almost every trajectory of the diffusive motion in both the forw
ard and\, most transparently\, the backward\, directions of time\, using a
very direct perturbation analysis. By averaging our trajectorial results
with respect to the underlying measure on path space\, we establish the mi
nimum rate of entropy dissipation along the Fokker-Planck flow and measure
exactly the deviation from this minimum that corresponds to any given per
turbation. As a bonus of the perturbation analysis\, we derive the so-call
ed HWI inequality relating relative entropy (H)\, Wasserstein distance (W)
and relative Fisher information (I).\n\nJoint work with I. Karatzas and B

DESCRIPTION:Title: Re
gularity for optimal transportation and application to the matching proble
m\nby Felix Otto (MPI-MIS\, Leipzig) as part of EDDy weekly seminar\n\
nLecture held in Aachen\, Templergraben 55\, lecture hall 2 (max. 33 perso
ns\, so please announce participation by mail).\n\nAbstract\nThe optimal t
ransportation of one measure into another\, leading to the notion of their
Wasserstein distance\, is a problem in the calculus of variations with a
wide range of applications. The regularity theory for the optimal map is s
ubtle and was revolutionized by Caffarelli. This approach relies on the fa
ct that the Euler-Lagrange equation of this variational problem is given b
y the Monge-Ampère equation. The latter is a prime example of a fully non
linear (degenerate) elliptic equation\, amenable to comparison principle a
rguments.\n\nWe present a purely variational approach to the regularity th
eory for optimal transportation\, introduced with M. Goldman and refined w
ith M. Huesmann. Following De Giorgi’s philosophy for the regularity the
ory of minimal surfaces\, it is based on the approximation of the displace
ment by a harmonic gradient\, through the construction of a variational co
mpetitor. This leads to a “one-step improvement lemma”\, and feeds int
o a Campanato iteration on the $C^{1\,\\alpha}$-level for the optimal map\
, capitalizing on affine invariance.\n\nOn the one hand\, this allows to r
e-prove the $\\varepsilon$-regularity result (Figalli-Kim\, De Philippis-F
igalli) bypassing Caffarelli’s celebrated theory. This also extends to g
eneral cost functions\, which is joint work with M. Prodhomme and T. Ried.
\n\nOn the other hand\, due to its robustness and low-regularity approach\
, it can be used to study the popular problem of matching two independent
Poisson point processes. For example\, it can be used to prove non-existen
ce of a stationary cyclically monotone coupling\, which is joint work with
M. Huesmann and F. Mattesini.\n

o inf.\n\nAbstract\nWe discuss random hyperbolic conservation laws and int
roduce a novel formulation interpreting the stochastic variables as additi
onal spatial dimensions with zero flux. The approach is compared with esta
blished non–intrusive approaches to random conservation laws. In the sca
lar case\, an entropy solution is proven to exist if and only if a random
entropy solution for the original problem exists. Furthermore\, existence
and numerical convergence of stochastic moments is established. Along with
this\, the boundedness of the $L^1$-error of the stochastic moments by th
e $L^1$-error of the approximation is proven. For the numerical approximat
ion a Runge–Kutta discontinuous Galerkin method is employed and a multi
–element stochastic collocation is used for the approximation of the sto
chastic moments. By means of grid adaptation the computational effort is r
educed in the spatial as well as in the stochastic directions\, simultaneo
usly. Results on Burger’s and Euler equation are validated by several nu
merical examples and compared to Monte Carlo simulations.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On
Neural Differential Equations\nby Patrick Kidger (Oxford University)
as part of EDDy weekly seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nNeural Differential Equation
s (NDEs) demonstrate that neural networks and differential equations are t
wo sides of the same coin. Traditional parameterised differential equation
s are a special case. Many popular neural network architectures (e.g. resi
dual networks\, recurrent networks\, StyleGAN2\, coupling layers) are disc
retisations. By treating differential equations as a learnt component of a
differentiable computation graph\, then NDEs extend current physical mode
lling techniques whilst integrating tightly with current deep learning pra
ctice.\n\nNDEs offer high-capacity function approximation\, strong priors
on model space\, the ability to handle irregular data\, memory efficiency\
, and a wealth of available theory on both sides. They are particularly su
itable for tackling dynamical systems\, time series problems\, and generat
ive problems.\n\nThis talk will offer a dedicated introduction to the topi
c\, with examples including neural ordinary differential equations (e.g. t
o model unknown physics)\, neural controlled differential equations (“co
ntinuous recurrent networks”\; e.g. to model functions of time series)\,
and neural stochastic differential equations (e.g. to model time series t
hemselves). If time allows I will discuss other recent work\, such as nove
l numerical neural differential equation solvers. This talk includes joint
work with Ricky T. Q. Chen\, Xuechen Li\, James Foster\, and James Morril

n dynamic optimal control problems with a long time horizon\, in a large n

optimal state are very close to the solution of a static control problem
that is derived from the dynamic optimal control problems by omitting the
information about the initial state and possibly a desired terminal state.
\n\nThis can be shown in different situations\, for example under exact co

ntrollability\, as studied by Tatsien Li and his group. In this situation\

by Mattia Zanella (University of Pavia) as part of EDDy weekly seminar\n\n
Lecture held in Pontdriesch 14-16\, Room 008 (SeMath).\n\nAbstract\nKineti
c equations play a leading role in the modelling of large systems of inter
acting particles/agents with a recognized effectiveness in describing real
world phenomena ranging from plasma physics to multi-agent dynamics. The
derivation of these models has often to deal with physical\, or even socia
l\, forces that are deduced empirically and of which we have limited infor
mation. Hence\, to produce realistic descriptions of the underlying system
s it is of paramount importance to consider the effects of uncertain quant
ities as a structural feature in the modelling process.\n\nIn this talk\,
we focus on a class of numerical methods that guarantee the preservation o
f main physical properties of kinetic models with uncertainties. In contra
st to a direct application of classical uncertainty quantification methods
\, typically leading to the loss of positivity of the numerical solution o
f the problem\, we discuss the construction of novel schemes that are capa
ble of achieving high accuracy in the random space without losing nonnegat
ivity of the solution [1\,4]. Applications of the developed methods are pr
esented in the classical RGD framework and in related models in life scien
ces. In particular\, we concentrate on the interplay of this class of mode
ls with mathematical epidemiology where the assessment of uncertainties in
data assimilation is crucial to design efficient interventions\, see [2\,
3].\n\nBibliography:\n\n[1] J. A. Carrillo\, L. Pareschi\, M. Zanella. Par

the area preserving Willmore flow of small bubbles sliding on a domain's

tract\nWe consider the area preserving Willmore evolution of surfaces $\\p
hi$\, that are close to a half sphere with small radius\, sliding on the b
oundary $S$ of a domain $\\Omega$ while meeting it orthogonally. We prove
that the flow exists for all times and keeps a "half spherish" shape. Addi
tionally we investigate the asymptotic behaviour of the flow and prove tha
t for large times the barycenter of the surfaces approximately follows an
explicit ordinary differential equation. If time allows we conclude by inv
estigating the convergence of the flow.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A
variational approach to data-driven problems in fluid mechanics\nby St
efan Schiffer (University of Bonn) as part of EDDy weekly seminar\n\nLectu
re held in Pontdriesch 14-16\, Room 008 (SeMath).\n\nAbstract\nIn this tal
k\, I introduce a data-driven approach to viscous fluid mechanics\, in par
ticular to the stationary Navier-Stokes equation. The essential idea is to
replace the constitutive law by experimental data. More precisely\, usual
ly one takes experimental data and then extrapolates a relation (the visco
sity) between the deviatoric stress $\\sigma$ and the strain $\\epsilon$\,
for example $\\sigma(\\epsilon) = \\mu_{0}\\epsilon$ (Newtonian fluid) o
r \n$\\sigma(\\epsilon) = \\mu_{0}\\vert\\epsilon\\vert^{\\alpha-1}\\epsil
on$ (power-law fluid).\nThis relation is then used to obtain the Navier-St
okes equation.\n\nInstead of using a constitutive relation\, we introduce
a data-driven formulation that has previously been examined in the context
of solid mechanics. The idea is to find a solution that satisfies the dif
ferential constraints\, derived from first principles\, and is as close as
possible to the experimental data. We obtain a variational formulation wh
ich we analyse under the aspects of weak lower-semicontinuity\, coercivity
and relaxation/$\\Gamma$-convergence.\n\nThis talk is based on joint work
with Christina Lienstromberg (Stuttgart) and Richard Schubert (Bonn).\n

interaction between homogenization and phase separation is considered. The
focus is on the regime where the latter happens at a smaller scale than t
he former\, and when the wells of the double well potential are allowed to
move and to have discontinuities. The zeroth and first order Γ\\GammaΓ-
limits are identified. The topology considered for the latter is that of t
wo-scale\, since it encodes more information on the asymptotic local micro
structure. As a corollary\, the minimum of the mass constrained minimizati
on problem is characterized in terms of discontinuities of the wells.\n

nlinear transient flows in porous media: porosity waves and channel format
ion\nby Markus Bachmayr (University of Mainz) as part of EDDy weekly s
eminar\n\nLecture held in Pontdriesch 14-16\, Room 008 (SeMath).\n\nAbstra
ct\nIn models of porous media flows\, for instance in hydrogeology\, the p
orosity of the solid matrix is typically treated as a static quantity. How
ever\, under certain circumstances\, such as in soft sedimentary rocks or
in magma flows\, the porosity of the solid material can evolve under the i
nfluence of fluid pressure. In particular\, this can lead to the formation
of solitary porosity waves and of higher-porosity channels. We consider a
system of nonlinear PDEs for porosity and effective pressure\, based on a
poroviscoelastic model\, which describes such phenomena. The focus of thi
s talk is on the well-posedness of this PDE problem\, which has been estab
lished in the literature only for initial porosities of high Sobolev smoot
hness. We discuss several preliminary results for porosities of low regula
rity\, including cases with jump discontinuities that are of particular in
terest in geological applications. We then turn to some first results on a
space-time adaptive numerical method based on a discontinuous Petrov-Gale
rkin approach for efficiently approximating the evolution of porosity chan
nels. Finally\, we discuss available measurement data and associated inver
se problems.\n\nThis is joint work in progress with Simon Boisserée (Main

rturbation theory and the Carleson condition for the $L^p$ Dirichlet bound
ary value problem\nby Martin Ulmer (University of Edinburgh) as part o
f EDDy weekly seminar\n\nLecture held in Pontdriesch 14-16\, Room 008 (SeM

dary value problem with $L^p$ boundary data for elliptic linear second ord
er PDEs and discuss the Carleson condition as sufficient condition for sol
vability of this problem. In the last few years\, the theory involving Car
leson type conditions is continuously making progress\, for example in rel
ated different problems like the real or complex valued Neumann or Regular
ity problem.\n\nTo start with we will motivate the Carleson condition and
explain why it arises “naturally” as condition for solvability of the
Dirichlet boundary value problem. Motivated by the Carleson condition we w
ill discuss perturbation theory of operators without drift term. This pert
urbation theory allows us to extent the class of operators which a Carleso
n type condition can be applied to\, and hence we get a wider class of ope
rators for whom the $L^p$ Dirichlet boundary value problem is solvable. Th
e perturbation theory and its application is joint work Martin Dindoš and

ll-Balanced Path-Conservative Central-Upwind Schemes Based on Flux Globali
zation\nby Alexander Kurganov (Southern University of Science and Tech
nology) as part of EDDy weekly seminar\n\nLecture held in Templergraben 55
\, seminar room 114 (1st floor).\n\nAbstract\nI will introduce a new appro
ach for constructing robust well-balanced (WB) finite-volume methods for n
onconservative onedimensional hyperbolic systems of nonlinear PDEs. The WB
property\, namely\, the ability of the scheme to exactly preserve physica
lly relevant steady-state solutions is enforced using a flux globalization
approach according to which a studied system is rewritten in an equivalen
t quasi-conservative form with global fluxes. To this end\, one needs to i
ncorporate nonconservative product terms into the global fluxes. The resul
ting system can then be solved using a Riemann-problem-solver-free central
-upwind (CU) scheme. However\, a straightforward integration of the noncon
servative terms would result in a scheme capable of exactly preserving ver
y simple smooth steady states only and failing to preserve discontinuous s
teady states naturally arising in the nonconservative models.\n\nIn order
to ameliorate the flux globalization based CU scheme\, we evaluate the int
egrals of the nonconservative product terms using a path-conservative tech
nique. This results in a new WB flux globalization based path-conservative
central-upwind scheme (PCCU) scheme\, which is much more accurate and rob
ust than its predecessors. This is illustrated on the nonconservative syst
em describing fluid flows in nozzles with variable cross-sections and a va
riety of shallow water models including the two-layer thermal rotating sha
llow water equations.\n

The method is shown to be unconditionally energy stable\, irrespective of

ows a large step size. The method is straightforward to implement and requ
ires little tuning of hyper-parameters. Experimental results demonstrate t

comparable and most times better generalization performance than SGD with

els (Landau-de Gennes functional) and in the generation of cross-fields in
meshing. For a general compact manifold target space we describe the asym
ptotic number\, type and location of singularities that arise in minimizer
s. We cover in particular the case where the fundamental group of the vacu
um manifold is nonabelian and hence the singularities cannot be characteri
zed univocally as elements of the fundamental group. We obtain similar res
ults for ppp-harmonic maps with ppp going to 222. The results unify the ex
