Accelerated Boundary Integral Simulations of Particulate and Two-Phase Flows

Anna-Karin Tornberg, Professor of Numerical Analysis at the KTH ROYAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, Stockholm, Sweden.

In micro-fluidic applications where the scales are small and viscous effects dominant, the Stokes equations are often applicable. The suspension dynamics of fluids with immersed rigid particles and fibers are very complex also in this Stokesian regime, and surface tension effects are strongly pronounced at interfaces of immiscible fluids.  Simulation methods can be developed based on boundary integral equations, which leads to discretizations of the boundaries of the domain only, and hence fewer unknowns compared to a discretization of the PDE.

Two main challenges associated with boundary integral discretizations are to construct accurate quadrature methods for singular and nearly singular integrands, as well as to accelerate the solution of the linear systems, that will have dense system matrices.
If these issues are properly addressed, boundary integral based simulations can be both highly accurate and very efficient.

I will present a spectrally accurate FFT based Ewald method developed for the purpose of accelerating simulations and will discuss its application to simulations of periodic suspensions of rigid particles and rigid fibers in 3D. I will also discuss a method for highly accurate simulations of interacting drops in 2D.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

COURSE ENROLLMENT
In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
1. Students who selected courses but something went wrong because of: enrollment capacity in a course **a time conflict **an academic enrolment block was applied after course selectiondropping or failing a course after course selection** Please re…

CS/Data Science/Digital Hardware option transfers NOW OPEN

The CS Undergraduate Advising Office has opened applications for CS transfers for Fall 2017. The online application is available at https://oat.uwaterloo.ca/formsand will be open from Tuesday, December 5 until Sunday, December 31, 2017, at 11.59 p.m.

We're accepting applications for:

Transfer from Math to CS - at a minimum, must have taken CS 136 or be taking it in Fall 2017.Transfer from CS to BCS (Data Science) - must have taken STAT 231 or be taking it in Fall 2017.Transfer from CS to CS/Digital HardwareAdding a Joint CS to an out-of-faculty planTransfer from outside of Math to CS (pending approval from Math)Answers to common questions about the transfer process can be found in the CS FAQs (particularly #2 and #151).
