COMPUTATIONAL APPLIED MATH SEMINAR

Wednesday, 28 August, 2013

SPEAKER:  Prof. Yi Zhang, UTK

TITLE: Finite Element Methods for Fourth Order Variational Inequalities

ABSTRACT: Fourth order obstacle problems are examples of variational inequalities whose numerical numerical analysis is more subtle than that of second order problems. In this talk we will introduce a general framework for finite element methods for this problem. We will discuss error estimates, extensions and applications. Some numerical results are also provided to validate the theoretical results.
