The stability is due to the use of so-called summation-by-parts operators, penalty techniques for implementing boundary and interface conditions, and the energy method for proving stability. In this talk we discuss new aspects of this technique including the relation to the initial-boundary-value-problem. By reusing the main ideas behind the development, new time-integration procedures, boundary conditions, boundary procedures, multi-physics couplings and uncertainty quantification, have been derived. We will present the theory by analyzing simple examples and apply to very complex problems.http://www.math.ethz.ch/screen/info?guid=5833Tue, 09 Sep 2014 13:46:05 +0200Clément Hongler - Ising model: making probabilistic sense of some conformal field theory ideas<h2 color="grey">Seminar on Stochastic Processes</h2><h1>Ising model: making probabilistic sense of some conformal field theory ideas</h1><br /><font color="grey">Speaker:</font> Clément Hongler, EPF Lausanne<br /><font color="grey">Location:</font> HG G 43 (ETH Zentrum)<br /><font color="grey">Start Date/Time:</font> 17 September 2014 @ 17:15<br /><br /><strong>Abstract:</strong><br />Scaling limits of critical planar lattice models are conjectured to be described by Conformal Field Theory (CFT). The most classical example is the Ising model, which is expected to be described by a minimal model of CFT. We will discuss some progress in this direction: the proof of the conjectured formulae for the correlation functions using discrete complex analytic spinors and ways to make sense of the very objects and methods of CFT. Based on joined works with (mostly) Stéphane Benoist, Dmitry Chelkak, Konstantin Izyurov, Kalle Kytöla and Stanislav Smirnov.http://www.math.ethz.ch/screen/info?guid=5771Wed, 27 Aug 2014 10:37:36 +0200
