Chris Budd - University of Bath

Harrison 209 15:30-16:30

When numerically solving a PDE in three dimensions , it is often necessary to generate a mesh on which to discretize the solution. Often this can be expensive to do. However, by using ideas from optimal transport it is possible both to construct a mesh quickly and cheaply, and also to prove that it has the necessary regularity properties to allow an accurate approximation of the solution of the PDE. In this talk I will describe these methods, prove results about their regularity and then apply them to some problems in meteorology.
