High-resolution finite volume methods are being developed for solving problems in complex phase space geometries, motivated by kinetic models of fusion plasmas.

Project

The open-source MFEM library enables application scientists to quickly prototype parallel physics application codes based on PDEs discretized with high-order finite elements.

Project

The NSDE project is focused on research and development of nonlinear solvers and sensitivity analysis techniques for nonlinear, time-dependent, and steady-state partial differential equations.

Project

The Serpentine project develops advanced finite difference methods for solving hyperbolic wave propagation problems. Our approach is based on solving the governing equations in second order differential formulation using difference operators that satisfy the summation by parts principle.
