SCAIM Seminar: Advanced Higher Order Finite Elements - From Theory to Application with Netgen/NGSolve

  • Date: 11/10/2009
Christoph Lehrenfeld (RWTH Aachen)

University of British Columbia


In this talk the Meshing program Netgen and the Finite Element library NGSolve are introduced. The possibilities of this software package will be highlighted with the help of two modern examples for Advanced Higher Order Finite Element Methods: A Discontinuous Galerkin Formulation for the Time Domain Maxwell Equations and a Hybrid Discontinuous Galerkin Formulation for the incompressible Navier Stokes Equations. Both methods will be shown from a theoretical point of view as well as implementation aspects with Netgen/NGSolve.


12:30 - 14:00, WMAX 216.

Pizza and pop will be provided!
