Stochastic Discontinuous Galerkin Methods with Low-Rank Solvers for Convection Diffusion Equations

To simulate complex kinds of behavior in physical systems, one makes predictions and hypotheses about certain outputs of interest with the help of simulation of mathematical models. However, due to the lack of knowledge or inherent variability in the model parameters, such real-problems formulated by mathematical models generally come with uncertainty concerning computed quantities. Therefore, the idea of uncertainty quantification (UQ) has become a powerful tool for modeling physical phenomena in the last few years.In this talk, we investigate numerical behaviour of a convection diffusion equation with random coefficients by approximating statistical moments of the solution. Stochastic Galerkin approach, turning the original stochastic problem to a system of deterministic convection diffusion equations, is used to handle the stochastic domain, whereas discontinuous Galerkin method is used to discretize spatial domain due to its local mass conservativity. To address the curse of dimensionality of Stochastic Galerkin method, we take advantage of the low--rank Krylov subspace methods, which reduce both the storage requirements and the computational complexity by exploiting a Kronecker--product structure of system matrices. The efficiency of the proposed methodology is illustrated by numerical experiments on the benchmark problems.

Stability analysis of constraints in flexible multibody systems dynamics
İder, Sıtkı Kemal (Elsevier BV, 1990-1)
Automated algorithms for the dynamic analysis and simulation of constrained multibody systems assume that the constraint equations are linearly independent. During the motion, when the system is at a singular configuration, the constraint Jacobian matrix possesses less than full rank and hence it results in singularities. This occurs when the direction of a constraint coincides with the direction of the lost degree of freedom. In this paper the constraint equations for deformable bodies are modified for use...
Mutual relevance of investor sentiment and finance by modeling coupled stochastic systems with MARS
Kalayci, Betul; Ozmen, Ayse; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-08-01)
Stochastic differential equations (SDEs) rapidly become one of the most well-known formats in which to express such diverse mathematical models under uncertainty such as financial models, neural systems, behavioral and neural responses, human reactions and behaviors. They belong to the main methods to describe randomness of a dynamical model today. In a financial system, different kinds of SDEs have been elaborated to model various financial assets. On the other hand, economists have conducted research on s...
Monte Carlo analysis of ridged waveguides with transformation media
Ozgun, Ozlem; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Wiley, 2013-07-01)
A computational model is presented for Monte Carlo simulation of waveguides with ridges, by combining the principles of transformation electromagnetics and the finite methods (such as finite element or finite difference methods). The principle idea is to place a transformation medium around the ridge structure, so that a single and easy-to-generate mesh can be used for each realization of the Monte Carlo simulation. Hence, this approach leads to less computational resources. The technique is validated by me...
Domain Structured Dynamics: Unpredictability, chaos, randomness, fractals, differential equations and neural networks
Akhmet, Marat (Institute of Physics Publishing (IOP), 2021-03-01)
Domain structured dynamics introduces a way for analysis of chaos in fractals, neural networks and random processes. It starts with newly invented abstract similarity sets and maps, which are in the basis of the abstract similarity dynamics. Then a labeling procedure is designed to determine the domain structured dynamics. The results follow the Pythagorean doctrine, considering finite number of indices for the labeling, with potential to become universal in future. The immediate power of the approach for f...
Deterministic modeling and inference of biological systems
Seçilmiş, Deniz; Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda; Department of Bioinformatics (2017)
The mathematical description of biological networks can be performed mainly by stochastic and deterministic models. The former gives more information about the system, whereas, it needs very detailed measurements. On the other hand, the latter is relatively less informative, but, the collection of their data is easier than the stochastic ones, rendering it a more preferable modeling approach. In this study, we implement the deterministic modeling of biological systems due to the underlying advantage. Among ...
