At the invitation of Prof. Zhi-Min Zhang, Prof. Chi-Wang Shu from Division of Applied Mathematics, Brown University visited CSRC on August 10, 2012.
In the morning of August 10, as the invited speaker of “CSRC Colloquium on Scientific Frontiers (IV)”，Prof. Chi-Wang Shu gave a lecture entitled “Discontinuous Galerkin Finite Element Methods for High Order Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations”. Prof. Shu first gave an introduction to the DG method, emphasizing several key ingredients which made the method popular, and then he demonstrated the performance of the DG methods by some Numerical examples. During the visit, Prof. Shu had further discussion with CSRC research staffs on the development of DG methods for efficient parallel numerical computation of High Order Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations.
