Seminar: grid algebra and finite difference methods

Speaker: Dr. Michael P. Lamoureux, University of Calgary Location: Mathematical Sciences 431 Date: Thursday, February 16, 2017 Time: 15:00-16:00 Title: Grid algebra and finite difference methods Abstract: We are all familiar with linear algebra and methods for representing linear operators as an n by n matrix. Today, we will discuss representing operators on a 2D […]


Last Thursday, February 16, 2017, Dr. Michael P. Lamoureux who is a faculty member at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Calgary gave a presentation entitled Grid Algebra and Finite Difference Methods.
Dr. Lameroux talked about two-dimensional and three-dimensional finite difference method for the wave equation with constant velocity. In particular, how to develop a numerical algorithm for the wave equation. Some numerical simulations were also presented.

The audiences were from different backgrounds including undergraduates, graduates and postdocs and faculty members. Here are some pictures of this event.
