Numerical Methods for solving Interface Problems

                                                              DATE:       Friday, October 16, 2015  

                                                          TIME:        3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

                                                          PLACE:     Shelby Center 218

 Interface problems occur in many multi-physics and multi-phase applications in science and engineering. An accurate and efficient method is desired.  In the past decades several numerical methodshave been proposed such as the immersed boundary method, the immersed interface method and the matched interface and boundary method.  We proposed a non-traditional finite element method for solving elliptic, elasticity and parabolic interface problems using non-body-fitted mesh.   Some theoretical discussions and numerical studies are presented in both 2D and 3D.

Refreshments will be served at 2:30 p.m. in SC 201 suite landing.

UAH Math Club News

Fall Semester has started and the UAH Math Club is gearing up for a great year!   Did you know that you do not have to be a mathematics major or minor to join the Math Club?  Anyone can join!!  The Math Club seeks to spread knowledge of and interest in mathematics through projects and community outreach.  Their goal is to gain understanding of different mathematical applications through guest lectures and mathematical conferences.  With this knowledge, the Club wishes to spark interest in mathematics and STEM careers in local schools by visiting and describing different uses of math in STEM and by hosting a high school mathematics tournament.

The Math Club raised enough money last year to support a child this year for the Secret Meals For Hungry Children Program sponsored by the Alabama Credit Union. The Math Club is looking forward to an exciting 2015-2016 academic year and again will be diligent with their fund raising efforts for group this year.    The Secret Meals feeds well over 1,100 disadvantaged schoolchildren. 100% of each donation goes entirely to the purchase of Secret Meals food packs, so every dollar of support makes a difference.  A donation of $140 wwill feed one child weekly for an entire school year.
