Talk on FD WENO by Dinshaw Balsara
Dinshaw will be visiting TIFR-CAM during 8-10 January 2024 and will give a talk on finite difference WENO schemes for hyperbolic PDE. To watch the talk on zoom, write me an email for the link.
Jalil Khan joins as postdoc
Jalil Khan has recently submitted his PhD thesis from IIT Jammu on Simulation and Analysis of Cumulus Cloud type of Flows, where he used DNS and HPC to study transient diabetic plumes. Here is a paper based on his PhD work 10.1063/5.0150070. At CAM, he will work on developing continuous Galerkin methods for compressible Navier-Stokes equations.
Sandeep Kumar joins as postdoc
Sandeep Kumar has joined as a postdoc at TIFR-CAM and will be part of my research group. He got his PhD from IIT Kharagpur where he worked on LES and DNS of nozzle-type flows using WENO and compact schemes. See his researchgate page
Talk on mesh adaptation for compressible flows
Mesh adaptation for PDE problems is important for complex problems since we cannot afford to use a large uniform mesh. In this colloquium talk, Aravind Balan will talk about metric based anisotropic mesh and solution adaption for compressible flow problems in the context of DG schemes.
PhD in Applied and Computational Mathematics
A new PhD program in applied and computational mathematics has been started in TIFR, which will be jointly run by CAM and ICTS, both located in Bangalore. Students from math, physics and engineering backgrounds with a master degree who have done some computational work are encouraged to apply.
Mini symposium in ECCOMAS 2024
The 9th European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering will take place in Lisbon, Portugal during 3-7 June, 2024. I am a co-organizer in a mini-symposium on shear shallow water model.
Short course on physics informed deep learning
Ameya Jagtap from Brown University will be visiting TIFR-CAM during 17 – 21 October, 2023. He is an expert in physics informed neural networks for PDE governed problems and will be giving a few lectures on this topic. The lectures will be in hybrid mode, if you want to attend on Zoom, then write to me for how to watch it.
Boniface and Herve visit TIFR-CAM
Boniface Nkonga and Herve Guillard from INRIA, Sophia Antipolis and Univ. of Cote d’Azur, Nice, will be visiting our Centre for about a month starting from 17 September. As members of Castor team, much of their work is in developing numerical simulation techniques for MHD with applications to tokamaks, like the ITER.
Arpit attends ICOSAHOM and ICIAM
Arpit Babbar gave two talks [1,2] at ICOSAHOM which was held in Seoul, South Korea and one talk  in ICIAM held in Tokyo, Japan. The visit was made possible due to financial support from NBHM and TIFR-CAM.
GPU talk by Sethupathy
Sethupathy Subramanian is currently a postdoc at Notre Dame, USA. He holds a PhD from ECE, IISc and a second PhD from Physics Dept. at Univ. of Notre Dame, USA with Dinshaw Balsara. He will be giving a talk on the use of GPU for Godunov-type solvers, with application to MHD. The talk can also be seen on Zoom, write to me for the link.
