Effective numerical solution of parametrized boundary value problems

Project Description

Numerical simulations can be used to study the behaviour of systems whose properties can be described by partial differential equations. Examples of such systems include, e.g., heat exchangers, membranes for water purification. However, scientists and engineers often want to optimise the processes taking place in these systems. In such situations, numerical simulations can be used to support experimental evidence in assessing different scenarios, but this is generally a very challenging task due to the high computational cost involved. This project aims to study a novel methodology that combines Proper Generalized Decomposition (PGD) and Domain Decomposition (DD) techniques to provide an effective computational framework for parametrized elliptic boundary value problems.
