Invitation to the
KCSE Science Day on Numerical Analysis: The Core of e-Science

During this event internationally known experts will present their views on history, current status and future of modern numerical methods and its applications in natural and engineering sciences. An integral part of this event will be presentations by KCSE students, which are related to usage of high performance computing in their PhD studies. On behalf of KCSE, we would like to ask KCSE students to submit short descriptions of their work using the link on the left.

Invited Speakers:
Laurette Tuckerman Ecole supérieure de physique et de chimie industrielles (ESPCI), Paris:<it>Bifurcation analysis for timesteppers</it>
Bertil Gustafsson Uppsala University: <it> Scientific Computing from a historical perspective</it>

The aim of this event is four-fold. We intend
  • to discuss topics of interest to members of KCSE and a broad audience,
  • to have high-level experts discussing recent developments,
  • to provide an internal platform for the students to present their results,
  • to promote networking.

This year’s science day is the succession of last year’s event.

Important Dates:
Abstract submission deadline: September 21, 2013
Notification of acceptance: October 20, 2013

Philipp Schlatter, Chairman of Science Day (Mechanics)

Simulations of the instability mechanism in a jet in crossflow. The nonlinear
direct simulation shows self-sustained shedding of hairpin-shaped vortices
downstream of the nozzle (upper panel). Using a linear stability analysis
based on an Arnoldi-time-stepper method, the most dominant global mode is
extracted (lower panel). It is techniques like this that will be
discussed during the KCSE Science Day.
