Do you know? SIAM BSU is hosting this year’s Research Computing Days Hackathon. We have participants coming from Boise State University, AIMS Rwanda, MIT, and SADC HPC Botswana. This event is taking place on March 29, 2023. Each member of the winning team gets a brand new laptop. Amazing, right? Registration is still ongoing…

Hello everyone,
We are pleased to invite you to our first SIAM BSU talk series which will be held next week on Wednesday 14th from 3:00pm to 4:00pm. We shall be hosting Titus Nde Nyarko a PhD computing student with emphasis in Data science to take us through his research leading to completion of his Comprehensive exam.

Title: Dark Matter Halo Density Calibration

Abstract:
In this synthesis, we reviewed the literature on halo density calibration. Several years of research have been conducted to understand dark matter, but it remains a mystery to Cosmologists. Despite many efforts, there still remain significant gaps in the literature. The ultimate goal is to reconcile dark matter theories (which include fitting functions and simulations) with observations. This will help us obtain an accurate and thorough understanding of the dark matter halo density profiles, which will in turn help us understand the formation of cosmic structure. New halo properties have been detected in simulations and observations but are still poorly understood. Analytic fitting functions such as NFW and Einasto profiles have also been shown to perform poorly under several conditions. We do not know yet if new physics can help us understand the mysterious dark matter but probing dark matter halos remains a good approach. We identified gaps in the literature and suggested solutions to some of them. Specifically, we demonstrated how machine learning can help us obtain more accurate predictions than analytic models and also estimate error bars on these predictions. Finally, we presented a computing artifact on uncertainty quantification.

Title: Structure preserving numerical methods for conservation laws

Time and Date: 11:00am - 12:00pm on Friday September 2, 2022

Place: Lewis 208 (Wan Conference Room)

Abstract:

Exact solutions to systems of conservation laws in multiple spatial dimensions often possess interesting additional properties which are a consequence of the equations and which can be formulated as PDEs. Examples are the evolution equations of vorticity or angular momentum, involutional constraints, stationary states or singular limits. Usually, the same numerical diffusion which renders a Finite Volume method stable, prevents it from preserving any of those additional properties. I will show strategies how to modify the numerical diffusion in order to obtain vorticity preserving and low Mach number compliant methods. This enables the numerical methods to capture essential properties of the equations without excessive grid refinement.
