Special Colloquium - Dr. Yingda Cheng

Friday, December 2nd from 10:30 – 11:30 AM. 

Title: "Sparse Grid Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for High-Dimensional PDEs"

Speaker: Dr. Yingda Cheng -  Department of Mathematics, University of South Carolina, Michigan State University


In this talk, we present sparse grid discontinuous Galerkin (DG) schemes for solving high-dimensional PDEs. We will discuss the construction of the scheme based on hierarchical tensor product finite element spaces, its properties and applications in elliptic and transport equations.
