The department of Mathematics and Statistics invites you to a seminar by
Dr. Stephen O'Sullivan (School of Physical Sciences, DCU):



Title:  Computational Modelling of Diffusion for Astrophysics, Finance,
and More


Abstract:  Following a brief summary of the ubiquity of diffusive
processes in the mathematical sciences, I will go on to describe the
challenge modelling these systems poses to  numerical modelling
techniques. In particular, with the availability of modern
supercomputers global (implicit) methods can be difficult to implement.

I will introduce a new approach to solving diffusive systems which is
local (explicit) and competitive, or even superior, to conventional
techniques in speed. Crucially, the approach is easily implemented on
complex grid geometries and distributed memory supercomputers for a wide
range of problems. 

For the remainder of the talk I will discuss applications of this method
to modelling problems in star formation, option pricing, and more.



The seminar will take place on Friday 6th November, at 4pm, in A2-002.
