In this article we obtain boundedness of the operator $(-\Delta~+~V)^{-\alpha/2}$ from $L^{p,\infty}(w)$ into weighted bounded mean oscillation type spaces $BMO_\LL^{\beta}(w)$ under appropriate conditions on the weight $w$. We also show that these weighted spaces also have a point-wise description for $0 < \beta < 1$. Finally, we study the behaviour of the operator $(-\Delta~+~V)^{-\alpha/2}$ when acting on $BMO_\LL^{\beta}(w)$.

en
Spinks and Veroff have shown that constructive logic with strong negation (CLSN for short), can be considered as a substructural logic. We use algebraic tools developed to study substructural logics to investigate some axiomatic extensions of CLSN. For instance we prove that Nilpotent Minimum Logic is the extension of CLSN by the prelinearity axiom. This generalizes the well known result by Monteiro and Vakarelov that three-valued \Lukasiewicz logic is an extension of CLSN. A Glivenko-like theorem relating CLSN and three-valued \Lukasiewicz logic is proved.

The near-wake structure of the flow around the Ahmed vehicle model
is numerically achieved by a time-averaged procedure of the unsteady
flow modeled by the Navier-Stokes equations with a Large Eddy
Simulation (LES) model for the turbulence . The Reynolds (based on
the model length) and the Mach numbers are fixed in 4.25 million and
0.18, respectively. A viscous and incompressible fluid model of
Newtonian type is assumed. A LES technique together with the
Smagorinsky model as Subgrid Scale Modeling (SGM) and the van
Driest near-wall damping is employed. The coherent macro structures in
the near-wake are estimated through the second invariant of the
velocity gradient (Q-criterion) applied on the time-average
flow. A monolithic computational code is employed, which is based on
the finite element method with equal order basis functions (linear)
for pressure and velocity and uses a Streamline Upwind Petrov-Galerkin
(SUPG) scheme combined with a Pressure Stabilizing
Petrov-Galerkin(PSPG) one. Parallel computing on a Beowulf
cluster with a domain decomposition technique for solving the
algebraic system is used. [Submitted to Int J Num Meth Fluids]

Shock waves and contact discontinuities usually appear in compressible ﬂows, requiring a ﬁne mesh in order to achieve an acceptable accuracy of the numerical solution. The usage of a mesh adaptation strategy is convenient as uniform reﬁnement of the whole mesh becomes prohibitive in three-dimensional problems. An unsteady h-adaptive strategy for unstructured ﬁnite element meshes is introduced. The non-conformity of the reﬁned mesh and a bounded decrease in the geometrical quality of the elements are some features of the reﬁnement algorithm. A three-dimensional extension of the well known reﬁnement constraint for two-dimensional meshes is used to enforce a smooth size transition among neighbour elements with different levels of reﬁnement. A density-based gradient indicator is used to track discontinuities. The solution procedure is partially parallelized, i.e: the inviscid ﬂow equations are solved in parallel with a streamline upwind Petrov-Galerkin ﬁnite element formulation with shock capturing terms while the adaptation of the mesh is sequentially performed. Results are presented for a spherical blast wave driven by a point-like explosion with an initial pressure jump of 105 atmospheres. The adapted solution is compared to that computed on a ﬁxed mesh. Also, results provided by the theory of self-similar solutions are considered for the analysis. In this particular problem, adapting the mesh to the solution accounts for approximately 4% of the total simulation time and the reﬁnement algorithm scales almost linearly with the size of the problem.

In this work we define the Integral, I_phi, and Derivative, D_phi, operators of order phi, in the setting of spaces of homogeneous-type, where phi is a function of positive lower type and upper type lower than 1.
We show that I_phi and D_phi are bounded from Lipschitz spaces Lambda^{xi} to Lambda^{xi phi} and Lambda^{xi/phi} respectively, with suitable restrictions on the quasi-increasing function xi for each case.
We also prove that I_phi and D_phi are bounded from the generalized Besov ˙B^{psi ,q}_p , with 1 leq p, q < infty, and Triebel-Lizorkin spaces ˙F^{psi ,q}_p , with 1 < p, q < infty, of order psi to those of order phi psi and psi /phi respectively, where psi is the quotient of two quasi-increasing functions of adequate upper types.

On convex functions and the finite element method

en
Many problems of theoretical and practical interest involve finding a convex or concave function. For instance, optimization problems such as finding the projection on the convex functions in $H^k(\Omega)$, or some problems in economics.
In the continuous setting and assuming smoothness, the convexity constraints may be given locally by asking the Hessian matrix to be positive semidefinite, but in making discrete approximations two difficulties arise: the continuous solutions may be not smooth, and an adequate discrete version of the Hessian must be given.
In this paper we propose a finite element description of the Hessian, and prove convergence under very general conditions, even when the continuous solution is not smooth, working on any dimension, and requiring a linear number of constraints in the number of nodes.
Using semidefinite programming codes, we show concrete examples of approximations to optimization problems.

We introduce a novel computational method for a Mumford-Shah functional, which decomposes a given image into smooth regions separated by closed curves. Casting this as a shape optimization problem, we develop a gradient descent approach at the continuous level that yields non-linear PDE flows. We propose time discretizations that linearize the problem, and space discretization by continuous piecewise linear finite elements. The method incorporates topological changes, such as splitting and merging for detection of multiple objects, space-time adaptivity and a coarse-to-fine approach to process large images efficiently. We present several simulations that illustrate the performance of the method, and investigate the model sensitivity to various parameters.
Keywords: image segmentation, Mumford-Shah, shape optimization, finite element method

In this work, a reinitialization procedure oriented to regularize the Level Set (LS) function field is presented. In LS approximations for two-fluid flow simulations, a scalar function indicates the presence of one or another phase and the interface between them. In general, the advection of such function produces a degradation of some properties of the LS function, such as the smoothness of the transition between phases and the correct position of the interface. The methodology introduced here, denominated Bounded Renormalization with Continuous Penalization, consists in solving by the finite element method a partial differential equation with certain distinguishing properties with the aim of keeping the desirable properties of the LS function. The performance of the strategy is evaluated for several typical cases in one, two and three-dimensional domains, for both the advection and the renormalization stages.

Surface diffusion is a (4th order highly nonlinear) geometric driven motion of a surface with normal velocity proportional to the surface Laplacian of mean curvature. We present a novel variational formulation for the parametric case, develop a finite element method, and propose a Schur complement approach to solve the resulting linear systems. We also introduce a new graph formulation and state an optimal a priori error estimate. We conclude with several significant simulations, some with pinch-off in finite time.
Keywords: Surface diffusion, fourth-order parabolic problem, finite elements, a priori error estimates, Schur complement, smoothing effect, pinch-off.

La transferencia de calor por convección está asociada a fenómenos fluidodinámicos, estudiados en múltiples aplicaciones de interés científico e industrial. Tales fenómenos presentan una amplia diversidad de escalas, lo cual configura un importante condicionamiento para su simulación computacional, restringiendo su implementación casi exclusivamente al procesamiento en paralelo. Actualmente, este procesamiento se implementa en computadoras personales con tratamiento computacional distribuido. Los “clusters” de procesadores INTEL x86 que operan bajo el sistema operativo GNU/Linux (clusters Beowulf), son grupos de computadoras personales que actuando en conjunto e interconectadas a través de dispositivos de alta velocidad, pueden resolver problemas de envergadura. El código de Elementos Finitos PETSc- FEM (Parallel Extensible Toolkit for Scientific Computations – Finite Element Method), se ejecuta en “clusters” Beowulf con una arquitectura orientada hacia Fluidodinámica Computacional. Este software, desarrollado en el Centro Internacional de Métodos Computacionales en Ingeniería, está escrito en C++ bajo una filosofía de programación orientada a objetos. El mismo, está basado en las librerías PETSc/MPI (Parallel Extensible Toolkit for Scientific Computations/ Message Passing Interface). En el presente trabajo, se expone su validación satisfactoria en procesos de convección de calor, a partir del análisis de resultados logrados con ensayos numéricos en una cavidad bidimensional.

Tensorial Equations for Three-Dimensional Laminar Boundary Layer Flows

For a laminar and attached steady flow along a smooth three-dimensional surface of an incompressible, isothermal and viscous fluid of Newtonian type, the boundary layer equations written in orthogonal curvilinear coordinates and involving curvature terms are relatively well known, but a covariant formulation that has not neither of them is rather not further considered. The more conventional boundary layer equations are written as two-dimensional partial differential equations over the body surface itself but, since in many cases these surfaces are not flat, the curvature tensor or the two principal curvatures of the flow domain must be into account. On the other hand, the present work is focused on a covariant formulation of the three-dimensional boundary layer equations without any curvature terms. The formulation also uses an orthogonal curvilinear coordinates given by the two surface coordinates plus a third normal to the body surface. The lack of curvature terms is due to that the boundary layer equations are rewritten as three-dimensional partial differential equations in an Euclidean domain and, since this is a flat space, the flow domain has not curvature terms and only remains the surface metric tensor in the continuity equation. In particular, it is shown that the developed equations are covariant under a linear coordinate transformation on the two surface coordinates, and a scaling one along the normal coordinate to the body surface. As a practical use of them, the boundary layer flow on the surface of a sphere in an axisymmetrical flow is numericaly computed using a pseudo-spectral approach.

Simultaneous Untangling and Smoothing of Moving Mesh

en
In this paper a usefull technique for simultaneous untangling and smoothing of meshes is presented. It is based as an extension of an earlier smoothing strategy developed by the authors and employed to solve the computational mesh dynamics stage in fluid-structure interaction problems. In moving grid problems the mesh untangling is necessary to remedy the drawback produced by the elements inversion arisen from the boundary motion making the mesh invalid. The original smoothing strategy is defined in terms of the minimization of a functional associated with the mesh distortion employing an indicator of the element geometric quality. This functional becomes discontinuous when an element has null volume, making impossible to ob- tain a valid mesh from an invalid one. To circumvent this drawback, the original functional is transformed in order to guarantee its continuity for the whole space of volume values getting in this way the untangling technique. The regularization depends on one parameter, allowing to recover the original functional when this parameter tends to zero. This feature is very important because at first it is necessary to regularize the functional for making the untangling possible, i.e. to make the mesh valid, but then, it is advisable to use the original functional to make the smoothing optimal. This technique is applied to several test cases, including 2D and 3D meshes with simplicial elements. An additional example serves as a guide to show how this technique may be employed for mesh genera- tion too. [Submitted to Int J N Meth Engng (2006)]

We introduce and study an adaptive finite element method for the Stokes system based on an Uzawa outer iteration to update the pressure and an elliptic adaptive inner iteration for velocity. We show linear convergence in terms of the outer iteration counter for the pairs of spaces consisting of continuous finite elements of degree k for velocity whereas for pressure the elements can be either discontinuous of degree k-1 or continuous of degree k-1 and k. The popular Taylor-Hood family is the sole example of stable elements included in the theory, which in turn relies on the stability of the continuous problem and thus makes no use of the discrete inf-sup condition. We discuss the realization and complexity of the elliptic adaptive inner solver, and provide consistent computational evidence that the resulting meshes are quasi-optimal.

We design an adaptive finite element method to approximate the solutions of quasi-linear elliptic problems. The algorithm is based on a Kacanov iteration and a mesh adaptation step is performed after each linear solve. The method is thus inexact because we do not solve the discrete nonlinear problems exactly, but rather perform one iteration of a fixed point method (Kacanov), using the approximation of the previous mesh as an initial guess. The convergence of the method is proved for any reasonable marking strategy and starting from any initial mesh. We conclude with some numerical experiments that illustrate the theory.

Weak type $(1,1)$ of maximal operators on metric measure spaces

en
A discretization method for the study of the weak type $(1,1)$ for the maximal of a sequence of convolution operators on $\mathbb R^n$ has been introduced by Miguel de Guzm\'an and Teresa Carrillo, by replacing the integrable functions by finite sums of Dirac deltas. Trying to extend the above mentioned result to integral operators defined on metric measure spaces, a general setting containing at once continuous, discrete and mixed contexts, a caveat comes from the result in \emph{On restricted weak type $(1,1)$; the discrete case} (Akcoglu M.; Baxter J.; Bellow A.; Jones R., Israel J. Math. 124 (2001), 285--297). There a sequence of convolution operators in $\ell^1(\mathbb Z)$ is constructed such that the maximal operator is of restricted weak type $(1,1)$, or equivalently of weak type $(1,1)$ over finite sums of Dirac deltas, but not of weak type $(1,1)$.
The purpose of this note is twofold. First we prove that, in a general metric measure space with a measure that is absolutely continuous with respect to some doubling measure, the weak type $(1,1)$ of the maximal operator associated to a given sequence of integral operators is equivalent to the weak type $(1,1)$ over linear combinations of Dirac deltas with positive integer coefficients. Second, for the non-atomic case we obtain as a corollary that any of these weak type properties is equivalent to the weak type $(1,1)$ over finite sums of Dirac deltas supported at different points.

An absorbing boundary condition for the ship wave resistance problem is presented. In contrast to the Dawson-like methods, it avoids the use of numerical viscosities in the discretization, so that a centered scheme can be used for the free surface operator. The absorbing boundary condition is “completely absorbing,” in the sense that the solution is independent of the position of the downstream boundary and is derived from straightforward analysis of the resulting constant-coefficients difference equations, assuming that the mesh is 1D-structured (in the longitudinal direction) and requires the eigen-decomposition of a matrix one dimension lower than the system matrix. The use of a centered scheme for the free surface operator allows a full finite element discretization. The drag is computed by a momentum flux balance. This method is more accurate and guarantees positive resistances.

We prove that the weak type (1, 1) for the maximal of a sequence of integral operators on a metric measure space X, follows from the uniform weak type on Dirac deltas of the restriction of the operators to a sequence of approximations of X.

The Composite Finite Element Mesh method is useful for discretization error estimation and, in addition, for solution improvement with no appreciable increment in the computational cost. The technique consists in redeﬁne over a given mesh the linear operator that arises from the discretization of a partial diﬀerential equation. This operator is modiﬁed according to an appropriate linear combination between the operators of the given mesh and of a coarse mesh, which must be a coarsening of the ﬁrst one. On the other hand, Multigrid methods solve a linear system using systems of several sizes resulting from diﬀerent discretization levels. This feature motivates the study of the application of the Multigrid strategy in conjunction with the Composite Mesh technique. In this work, we propose a scheme for solving the linear system arising from the Composite Mesh strategy using a Multigrid method. Particularly, we use a geometric version of the Multigrid technique. The proposal is based on a modiﬁcation of the operators in some levels of the Multigrid algorithm in order to achieve both, the advantages of Multigrid for linear systems resolution and the solution improvement that could be achieved with the Composite Mesh strategy. Several elliptic test problems with analytical solution are presented, where the convergence rates are analyzed and the decrease in discretization errors is quantiﬁed.

In this paper, the efficiency and the quality of the solutions obtained with a new parallelizable preconditioner for Domain Decomposition Methods (DDM) by means of Finite Element discretization of partial differential equations arising in the context of CFD problems is studied. We compare the convergence to the analytical solution or measured data for problems that have been considered as `benchmarks' in the computational fluid dynamic literature. For this purpose, we study the solution obtained via parallelized iterative methods that have been extensively used (e.g. CG and GMRES global iteration and its variants) in CFD computations and those obtained with the Interface Strip (IS) preconditioner for the Schur Complement method. The idea is to present the new solver as an alternative to obtain more accurate and faster solutions in the context of monolithic and non-monolithic CFD schemes. For this purpose, the confined internal flows and external viscous compressible/incompressible flow around (complex-shape) bodies are considered.[International Journal for Numerical Methods in Fluids 52, pp. 89-118 (2006)]

In this paper we look for PDEs that arise as limits of values of Tug-of-War games when the possible movements of the game are taken in a family of sets that are not necessarily euclidean balls. In this way we find existence of viscosity solutions to the Dirichlet problem for an equation of the form -(x) = 0, that is, an infinity Laplacian with spatial dependence. Here J_{x}(Dv(x)) is a vector that depends on the the spatial location and the gradient of the solution.

A floating hemisphere under forced harmonic oscillation at very-low
and very-high frequencies is considered. The problem is reduced to an
elliptic one, that is, the Laplace operator in the exterior domain
with Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions. Asymptotic values of
the added mass are found with an analytic prolongation for the surge
mode, and with a semi-numerical computation with spherical harmonics
for the heave mode. The general procedure is based on the use of
spherical harmonics and its derivation is based on a physical insight
rather than a mathematical one. This case can be used to test the
accuracy achieved by numerical codes based on other formulations as
finite or boundary elements. [To appear in Journal Fluids Engineering ASME]

Iterated commutators of multilinear Calderón-Zygmund operators and pointwise multiplication with functions in BMO are studied in products of Lebesgue spaces. Both strong type and weak end-point estimates are obtained, including weighted results involving the vectors weights of the multilinear Calderón-Zygmund
theory recently introduced in the literature. Some better than expected estimates for certain multilinear operators are presented too.

An application to weighted norm inequalities for Hardy-Littlewood maximal function, which extends a result of A. P. Calderón, is given.

Approximating optimization problems over convex functions
Articles
Aguilera, Néstor E.

en
Many problems of theoretical and practical interest involve finding an optimum over a family of convex functions. For instance, finding the projection on the convex functions in $H^k(\Omega)$, and optimizing functionals arising from some problems in economics.
In the continuous setting and assuming smoothness, the convexity constraints may be given locally by asking the Hessian matrix to be positive semidefinite, but in making discrete approximations two difficulties arise: the continuous solutions may be not smooth, and functions with positive semidefinite discrete Hessian need not be convex in a discrete sense.
Previous work has concentrated on non-local descriptions of convexity, making the number of constraints to grow super-linearly with the number of nodes even in dimension 2, and these descriptions are very difficult to extend to higher dimensions.
In this paper we propose a finite difference approximation using positive semidefinite programs and discrete Hessians, and prove convergence under very general conditions, even when the continuous solution is not smooth, working on any dimension, and requiring a linear number of constraints in the number of nodes.
Using semidefinite programming codes, we show concrete examples of approximations to problems in two and three dimensions.

We consider finite elements that are adapted to a (semi)norm that is weaker than the one of the trial space. We establish convergence of the finite element solutions to the exact one under the following conditions: refinement relies on unique quasi-regular element subdivisions and generates locally quasi-uniform grids; the finite element spaces are conforming, nested, and satisfy the inf-sup condition; the error estimator is reliable and appropriately locally efficient; the indicator of a non-marked element is bounded by the estimator contribution associated with the marked elements, and each marked element is subdivided at least once. This abstract convergence result is illustrated by two examples.
Keywords: Adaptivity, conforming finite elements, convergence, weaker (semi)norms, mesh-dependent norms

Transient free surface flows are numerically simulated by a finite element interface capturing method based on a level set approach. The methodology consists of the solution of two-fluid viscous incompressible flows for a single domain, where the liquid phase is identified by positive values of the level set function, the gaseous one by negative ones, and the free surface by the zero level set. The numerical solution at each time step is performed in three stages: (i) a two-fluid Navier--Stokes stage, (ii) an advection stage for the transport of the level set function, and (iii) a bounded reinitialization with continuous penalization stage for keeping smoothness of the level set function. The proposed procedure, and particularly the renormalization stage, are evaluated in two typical two and three-dimensional problems. [Submitted to Int. J Comp Fluid Dynamics, ISSN 1061-8562]

Abstract: Surface diffusion is a (4th order highly nonlinear) geometric driven motion of a surface with normal velocity proportional to the surface Laplacian of mean curvature. We present a novel variational formulation for parametric surfaces with or without boundaries. The method is semi-implicit, requires no explicit parametrization, and yields a linear system of elliptic PDE to solve at each time step. We next develop a finite element method, propose a Schur complement approach to solve the resulting linear systems, and show several significant simulations, some with pinch-off in finite time. We introduce a mesh regularization algorithm, which helps prevent mesh distortion, and discuss the use of time and space adaptivity to increase accuracy while reducing complexity.
Keywords: Surface diffusion, fourth-order parabolic problem, finite elements, Schur complement, smoothing effect, pinch-off.

The aim of this paper is to analyze the aeroelastic processes developed during the starting phase of a rocket engine via a coupling fluid/structure code. This analysis gives a better understanding of the behavior of the structure as the shock waves propagate inside the engine nozzle. The gasdynamics Euler equations are solved for the fluid, and constitutive linear elastic solid under the assumption of large displacements and rotations with no material damping is adopted for the structure. The coupling of each subproblem is carried out with a Gauß-Seidel algorithm over the fluid and structure states. For the fluid problem an ALE (Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian Formulation) formulation is used. It allows to define a reference system following the moving boundaries while the structure is deformed. The code is validated with a study of the flutter phenomena that may occur when a supersonic compressible fluid flows over a flat solid plate. Regarding the rocket engine ignition problem, a modal analysis of the structure is performed in order to analyze the eigenfrequency shifts when considering the coupling with the fluid flow.

We introduce a software package running under Matlab that implements several recently proposed likelihood-based methods for sufficient dimension reduction. Current capabilities include estimation of reduced subspaces with a fixed dimension d, as well as estimation of d by use of likelihood-ratio testing, permutation testing and information criteria. The methods are suitable for preprocessing data for both regression and classification. Implementations of related estimators are also available. Although the software is more oriented to command-line operation, a graphical user interface is also provided for prototype computations.

In this work, transient free surface flows of a viscous incompressible fluid are numerically solved through parallel computation. Transient free surface flows are boundary-value problems of moving type that involve geometrical non-linearities. In contrast to more conventional CFD problems, the computational flow domain is partially bounded by a free surface which is not known a priori, since its shape must be computed as part of the solution. In steady-flow the free surface is obtained by an iterative process, but when the free surface evolves with time the problem is more difficult, generating large distortions in the computational flow domain. The incompressible Navier-Stokes numerical solver is based on the finite element method with equal order elements for pressure and velocity (linear elements), and it uses a Streamline Upwind/Petrov-Galerkin (SUPG) scheme combined with a Pressure-Stabilizing/Petrov-Galerkin (PSPG) one. At each time step, the fluid equations are solved with constant pressure and null viscous traction conditions at the free surface and the velocities obtained in this way are used for updating the positions of the surface nodes. Then, a pseudo elastic problem is solved in the fluid domain in order to relocate the interior nodes so as to keep mesh distortion controlled. This has been implemented in PETSc-FEM by running two parallel instances of the code and exchanging information between them. Some numerical examples are presented.

An h-adaptive unstructured mesh refinement strategy to solve unsteady problems by the finite element method is presented. The maximum level of refinement for the mesh is prescribed beforehand. The core operation of the strategy, namely the elements refinement, is described in detail. It is shown through numerical tests that one of the advantages of the chosen refinement procedure is to keep bounded the decrease of the mesh's quality. The type of element is not changed and no transition templates are used, therefore hanging nodes appear in the adapted mesh. The 1-irregular nodes refinement constraint is applied and the refinement process driven by this criterion is recursive. Both the strength and weakness of the adaptivity algorithm are mentioned, based on clock time measures and implementation issues. To show the proper working of the strategy, an axisymmetric, compressible non-viscous starting flow in a bell-shaped nozzle is solved over an unstructured mesh of hexaedra.

We establish the Robinson joint consistency theorem for the infinitevalued propositional logic of Lukasiewicz. As a corollary we easily obtain the amalgamation property for MV-algebras the algebras of Lukasiewicz logic: all pre-existing proofs of this latter result make essential use of Pierce amalgamation theorem for abelian lattice-ordered groups (with strong unit) together with the categorical equivalence $\Gamma$ between these groups and MV-algebras. Our main tools are elementary and geometric.

Axisymmetric inertial waves of a viscous fluid that fill a perturbed
rotating spherical container are numerically simulated by finite
elements. A laminar flow of an incompressible viscous fluid of
Newtonian type is assumed in the numerical simulations. A monolithic
computational code is employed, which is based on stabilized finite
elements by means of a Streamline Upwind Petrov Galerkin (SUPG) and
Pressure Stabilized Petrov Galerkin
(PSPG) composed scheme. The Reynolds number is fixed as 50 000, while the ranges of the Rossby and Ekman
numbers are 0.2 Ro 1 and 2 × 10-5 Ek 10-4 , respectively. Some flow visualizations are performed. The
pressure coefficient spectrum at the centre of the sphere is plotted as a function of the frequency ratio and some
resonant frequencies are identified. The position of these resonant frequencies are in good agreement with previous
experimental and analytical ones in the inviscid limit.

A new computable a posteriori error estimator is introduced, which relies on the solution of small discrete problems on stars. It exhibits built-in flux equilibration and is equivalent to the energy error up to data oscillation without any saturation assumption. A simple adaptive strategy is designed, which simultaneously reduces error and data oscillation, and is shown to converge without mesh preadaptation nor explicit knowledge of constants. Numerical experiments reveal a competitive performance, show extremely good effectivity indices, and yield quasi-optimal meshes.
Keywords: A posteriori error estimators, local problems, stars, data oscillation, adaptivity, convergence, performance

In this article the concept of saturation of an arbitrary regularization method is formalized based upon the original idea of saturation for spectral regularization methods introduced by Neubauer in 1994 (A. Neubauer, "On converse and saturation results for regularization methods", In BeitrÄage zur angewandten Analysis und Informatik, pp. 262-270. Shaker, Aachen, 1994). Necessary and sufficient conditions for a regularization method to have global saturation are provided. It is shown that for a method to have global saturation the total error must be optimal in two senses, namely as optimal order of convergence over a certain set which at the same time, must be optimal (in a very precise sense) with respect to the error. Finally, two converse results are proved and the theory is applied to find suffcient conditions which ensure the existence of global saturation for spectral methods with classical qualifcation of finite positive order and for methods with maximal qualifcation. Finally, several examples of regularization methods possessing global saturation are shown.

The purpose of this paper is twofold. We introduce a general maximal function on the Gaussian setting which dominates the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck maximal operator and prove its weak type (1; 1) by using a covering lemma which is halfway between Besicovitch and Wiener. On the other hand, by taking as starting point the generalized Cauchy-Riemann equations, we introduce a new class of Gaussian Riesz Transforms. We prove, using the maximal function de¯ned in the ¯rst part of the paper, that unlike the ones already studied these new Riesz Transforms are weak type (1; 1) independently of their orders.

AFEM for the Laplace-Beltrami Operator on Graphs: Design and Conditional Contraction Property

We present an adaptive finite element method (AFEM) of any polynomial degree for the Laplace-Beltrami operator on $C^1$ graphs $\Gamma$ in $\R^d$, $(d\ge2)$. We first derive residual-type a posteriori error estimates that account for the interaction of both the energy error in $H^1(\Gamma)$ and the surface error in $W^1_\infty(\Gamma)$ due to approximation of $\Gamma$. We devise a marking strategy to reduce the total error estimator, namely a suitably scaled sum of the energy, geometric, and inconsistency error estimators. We prove a conditional contraction property for the sum of the energy error and the total estimator; the conditional statement encodes resolution of $\Gamma$ in $W^1_\infty$. We conclude with one numerical experiment that illustrates the theory.

We prove that for each $n\geq 4$ there is an analytic function
$F_n(x)$ satisfying an algebraic differential equation of degree
$n+1$ such that the logarithmic Mahler measure of the linear form
$\lf_n=x_1+\cdots + x_n$ can be essentially computed as the evaluation of $F_n(z)$ at $z=n^{-1}$. We
show that the coefficients of the series representing $F_n(z)$ can
be computed recursively using the $n$-th. symmetric power of a
second order linear algebraic differential equation and we give
an estimate on the growth of these coefficients.

The composite ﬁnite element mesh method is useful for discretization error estimation and, in addition, for solution improvement with no increment in the computational cost. The technique consists in redeﬁne over a given mesh the linear operator that arises from the discretization of a partial diﬀerential equation. This operator is modiﬁed according to an appropriate linear combination between the operators of the given mesh and of a coarse mesh, which must be a coarsening of the ﬁrst one. In this work a novel algebraic composite mesh technique is proposed. The technique uses some tools from the Algebraic Multigrid method for the deﬁnition of the coarse mesh and the discrete space associated with it. Mesh coarsening is based on the fusion of elements in macroelements, with a new deﬁnition of the grid topology and basis functions. The agglomeration of elements is made in order to reduce the mesh anisotropy, which is of importance in the discretization of convection-diﬀusion-reaction problems. The discrete operator for the coarser mesh is obtained by the Galerkin Coarse Approximation, where inter-grid transfer operators are obtained using the graph of the coarse mesh. Several test problems with diﬀerent boundary conditions are presented.

This package is constructed on top of the MPI1 specification and defines an ob ject oriented interface which closely follows MPI2 C++ bin ings. It supports point-to-point (sends, receives) and collective (broadcasts, scatters, gathers) communications of general Python ob jects. Efficiency has been tested in a Beowulf class cluster and satisfying results were obtained.

We are interested in the behavior of the dynamical system generated by successive applications of Hutchinson similitudes starting from a metric measure space. We prove that, in the case of families of similitudes with the same contraction ratio, even when no point of the orbit is a doubling space, a gradual doubling property is taking place and the limit point recovers the homogeneity property.

Wu in order to get approximation of a compact space of homogeneous type by a uniform sequence of finite spaces of homogeneous type. The convergence holds in the sense of a metric built on the Hausdorff distance between sets and on the Kantorovich-Rubinshtein metric between measures.

A DGCL Compliant FEM Formulation Based on Averaged Jacobians

In this article a new methodology for developing DGCL (for Discrete Geometric Conservation Law) compliant formulations is presented. It is carried out in the context of the Finite Element Method (FEM) for general advective-diffusive systems on moving domains using an Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) scheme. There is an extensive literature about the impact of DGCL compliance on the stability and precision of time integration methods. In those articles it has been proved that satisfying the DGCL is a necessary and sufﬁcient condition for any ALE scheme to maintain on moving grids the nonlinear stability properties of its ﬁxed-grid counterpart. However, only a few works propose a methodology for obtaining a compliant scheme. In this work, a DGCL compliant scheme based on an Averaged ALE Jacobians Formulation (AJF) is obtained. This new formulation is applied to the theta-family of time integration methods. In addition, an extension to the three-point Backward Difference Formula (BDF) is given. With the aim to validate the AJF formulation a set of numerical tests are performed. These tests include 2D and 3D diffusion problems with different mesh movements, and the 2D Euler ﬂow over a pitching NACA0012 airfoil.

For the family of truncations of the Gaussian Riesz transforms and Poisson integral we study their rate of convergence through the oscillation and variation operators.
More precisely, we search for their L^p(dgamma)-boundedness properties, being dgamma the Gauss
measure. We achieve our results by looking at the oscillation and variation operators from a vector valued point of view.

In this article we prove that it is possible to construct, using newest-vertex bisection, meshes that equidistribute the error in $H^1$-norm, whenever the function to approximate can be decomposed as a sum of a regular part plus a singular part with singularities around a finite number of points. This decomposition is usual in regularity results of Partial Differential Equations (PDE). As a consequence, the meshes turn out to be quasi-optimal, and convergence rates for adaptive finite element methods (AFEM) using Lagrange finite elements of any polynomial degree are obtained.

We consider the approximate solution with adaptive finite elements of a class of linear boundary value problems, which includes problems of `saddle point' type. For the adaptive algorithm we suppose the following framework: refinement relies on unique quasi-regular element subdivisions and generates locally quasi-uniform grids, the finite element spaces are conforming, nested, and satisfy the inf-sup conditions, the error estimator is reliable as well as locally and discretely efficient, and marked elements are subdivided at least once. Under these assumptions, we give a sufficient and essentially necessary condition on marking for the convergence of the finite element solutions to the exact one. This condition is not only satisfied by Dörfler's strategy, but also by the maximum strategy and the equidistribution strategy.

Abstract. A semi-analytical computation of the three dimen sional Green function for seakeeping ﬂow problems is proposed. A potential ﬂow model is assumed with an harmonic dependence in time and a linearized free-surface boundary condition. The multiplicative Green function is expressed as the product of a time and a spatial parts. The spatial part is known as the Kelvin kernel, which is the sum of two Rankine sources and a wave-like kernel, being the last one written using the Haskind- Havelock representation. Numerical eﬃciency is improved by an analytical integration of the two Rankine kernels and the use of a singularity subtractive technique for the Haskind-Havelock integral, where a globally adaptive quadrature is performed for the regular part and an analytic integration is used for the singular one. The proposed computation is employed in a low order panel method with ﬂat triangular elements. As a numerical example, an oscillating ﬂoating unit hemisphere in heave and surge modes is considered, where analytical and semi-analytical solutions are taken as a reference.[Submitted to Computational and Applied Mathematics ISSN: 0101-8205]

We present a variational framework for shape optimization problems that establishes clear and explicit connections among the continuous formulation, its full discretization and the resulting linear algebraic systems. Our approach hinges on the following essential features: shape differential calculus, a semi-implicit time discretization and a finite element method for space discretization. We use shape differential calculus to express variations of bulk and surface energies with respect to domain changes. The semi-implicit time discretization allows us to track the domain boundary without an explicit parametrization, and has the flexibility to choose different descent directions by varying the scalar product used for the computation of normal velocity. We propose a Schur complement approach to solve the resulting linear systems efficiently. We discuss applications of this framework to image segmentation, optimal shape design for PDE, and surface diffusion, along with the choice of suitable scalar products in each case. We illustrate the method with several numerical experiments, some developing pinch-off and topological changes in finite time.
Keywords: Shape optimization, scalar product, gradient flow, semi-implicit discretization, finite elements, surface diffusion, image segmentation.

A Lagrangian-type panel method, in the time domain, is proposed for potential flows with a moving free surface. After a spatial semi.discretization, with a low-order scheme, the instantaneous velocity-potential and normal displacement on the moving free surface, are obtained by eans of a time-marching scheme. The kinematic and dynamic boundary conditions at the free surface are non-linear restrictions over the related Ordinary Differential Equation system and, in order to handle them an alternative Stekhlov-Poincaré operator technique is proposed. The method is applied to sloshing like flow problems.

We introduce a software package running under Matlab that implements several recently proposed likelihood-based methods for sufficient dimension reduction. Current capabilities include estimation of reduced subspaces with a fixed dimension d, as well as estimation of d by use of likelihood-ratio testing, permutation testing and information criteria. The methods are suitable for preprocessing data for both regression and classification. Implementations of related estimators are also available. Although the software is more oriented to command-line operation, a graphical user interface is also provided for prototype computations.

Mesh motion strategy is one of the key points in many
fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems. Due to the increasing
application of FSI to solve the current challenging engineering
problems this topic has deserved a highlight interest. There are
several different strategies to solve this problem, some of them using
a discrete and lumped spring-mass system to propagate the boundary
motion into the volume mesh and many others using an elastostatic
problem to deform the mesh. In all these strategies there is always a
risk of producing an invalid mesh, a mesh with some elements inverted.
Normally this condition is irreversible and once an invalid mesh is
obtained it is difficult to continue. In this paper the mesh motion
strategy is defined as an optimization problem. By its definition this
strategy may be classified as a particular case of an elastostatic
problem where the material constitutive law is defined in terms of the
minimization of certain energy functional that takes into account the
degree of element distortion. Some advantages of this strategy is its
natural tendency to high quality meshes, its robustness and its
straightforward extension to 3D problems. Several examples included in
this paper show these capabilities. Even though this strategy seems
to be very robust it is not able to recover a valid mesh starting from
an invalid one. This improvement is left for future work.[International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering

A CVBEM Formulation for Multiple Profiles and Cascades

A numerical algorithm based on the Complex Variable Boundary Element Method (CVBEM) for plane incompress- ible potential flow around aerofoils and cascades is described. The method is based on the representation of the complex disturbance velocity by means of a Cauchy-type integral around the foil. The Cauchy density function is approximated piecewise linearly and a linear system on the nodal values is obtained by collocation at the nodes. The Kutta condition is imposed via a Lagrange multiplier, in contrast with the least-squares formulation used in a previous work. For cascades, the problem is conformally mapped by a simple hyperbolic function (exponential or hyperbolic tangent) to a related problem with only one profile and one or two poles. Thus, the cascade problem is accurately solved with minor modifications to the single profile code and at the same cost of a single profile computation. Finally, several numerical examples are shown: single Joukowski and NACA profiles, interference coefficients for the flat plate cascade and a plane cascade at the external cylindrical section of an industrial fan.

The main result of this paper is a pointwise estimate for
the space time gradients of a temperature on a cylindrical
domain in terms of an iteration of two maximal operators. The
result is an extension to the parabolic setting of the elliptic
inequalities proved by D.Jerison and C.Kenig and also by S.Dahlke and
R.DeVore. After an improvement of the parabolic mean value formula and the
analysis of the kernel and the operator that provides the space
derivatives
of temperatures, we obtain a pointwise estimate for space
gradients weighted by powers of the distance to the parabolic
boundary in terms of an iteration of two maximal operators which
are well known in harmonic analysis: the one-sided maximal
Hardy-Littlewood operator in the time variable and the
Calderón maximal operator in the space variable.

We establish a categorical duality for the finitely generated Lindenbaum-Tarski algebras of propositional nilpotent minimum logic. The latter's conjunction is semantically interpreted by a left-continuous (but not continuous) triangular norm; implication is obtained through residuation. Our duality allows one to transfer to nilpotent minimum logic several known results about inutitionistic logic with the prelineari\-ty axiom (also called G\"{o}del-Dummett logic), mutatis mutandis. We give several such applications.

A Preconditioning Mass Matrix to Avoid the Ill-Posed Two-Fluid Model

Two-fluid models are central to the simulation of transport
processes in two-phase homogenized systems. Even though this physical
model has been widely accepted, an inherently non-hyperbolic and
non-conservative ill-posed problem arises from the mathematical point
of view. It has been demonstrated that this drawback occurs even for a
very simplified model, i.e., an inviscid model with no interfacial
terms. Lots of efforts have been made to remedy this anomaly and in
the literature two different types of approaches can be found. On one
hand, extra terms with physical origin are added to model the
interphase interaction, but even though this methodology seems to be
realistic, several extra parameters arise from each added term with
the associated difficulty in their estimation. On the other hand,
mathematical based-work has been done to find the way to remove the
complex eigenvalues obtained with two-fluid model
equations. Preconditioned systems, characterized as a projection of
the complex eigenvalues over the real axis, may be one of the choices.
The aim of this paper is to introduce a simple and novel mathematical
strategy based on the application of a preconditioning mass matrix
that circumvents the drawback caused by the non-hyperbolic behavior of
the original model. Although the mass and momentum conservation
equations are modified, the target of this methodology is to present
another way to reach a steady state solution (using a time marching
scheme), greatly valued by researchers in industrial process
design. Attaining this goal is possible because only the temporal term
is affected by the preconditioner. The obtained matrix has two
parameters that correct the non-hyperbolic behavior of the model: the
first one modifies the eigenvalues removing their imaginary part and
the second one recovers the real part of the original
eigenvalues. Besides the theoretical development of the
preconditioning matrix, several numerical results are presented to
show the validity of the method. [To appear in Journal of Applied Mechanics]

Data oscillation is intrinsic information missed by the averaging process associated with finite element methods (FEM) regardless of quadrature. Ensuring a reduction rate of data oscillation, together with an error reduction based on a posteriori error estimators, we construct a simple and efficient adaptive FEM for elliptic PDE with linear rate of convergence without any preliminary mesh adaptation nor explicit knowledge of constants. Any prescribed error tolerance is thus achieved in a finite number of steps. A number of numerical experiments in 2d and 3d yield quasi-optimal meshes along with a competitive performance.
Keywords: A posteriori error estimators, data oscillation, adaptive mesh refinement, convergence, performance, quasi-optimal meshes

The concept of qualifcation for spectral regularization methods (SRM) for inverse ill-posed problems is strongly associated to the optimal order of convergence of the regularization error. In this article, the definition of
qualification is extended and three different levels are introduced: weak, strong and optimal. It is shown that the weak qualifcation extends the definition introduced
by Mathé and Pereverzev in 2003 (Mathé, P. and Pereverzev, S. V.: "Geometry of linear ill-posed problems in variable Hilbert scales", Inverse Problems, 19(3), 789-803 (2003)), mainly in the sense that the functions associated to orders of convergence and source sets need not be the same. It is shown that certain methods possessing infinite classical qualification, e.g. truncated singular value decomposition (TSVD), Landweber's method and Showalter's method, also
have generalized qualification leading to an optimal order of convergence of the regularization error. Sufficient conditions for a SRM to have weak qualification are provided and necessary and sufficient conditions for a given order of convergence to be strong or optimal qualification are found. Examples of all three qualification levels are provided and the relationships between them as well as with the classical concept of qualification and the qualification introduced by Mathé and Pereverzev are shown. In particular, SRMs
having extended qualification in each one of the three levels and having zero or infinite classical qualification are presented. Finally several implications of this theory in the
context of orders of convergence, converse results and maximal source sets for inverse ill-posed problems, are shown.

In this paper, the efficiency of a parallelizable preconditioner for Domain Decomposition Methods in the context of the solution of non-symmetric linear equations arising from discretization of the Saint-Venant equations, is investigated. The proposed Interface Strip Preconditioner (IS) is based on solving a problem in a narrow strip around the interface. It requires much less memory and computing time than classical Neumann-Neumann preconditioner, and handles correctly the flux splitting among sub-domains that share the interface. The performance of this preconditioner is assessed with an analytical study of Schur complement matrix eigenvalues and numerical experiments conducted in a 2 parallel computational environment (consisting of a Beowulf cluster of twenty-nodes).

We are interested in the preservation of doubling properties along the Hutchinson orbit generated by successive applications of contraction mappings on a metric measure space. We construct some elementary examples, built on Muckenhoupt weights, showing that even when the initial and the limit points of the orbit are doubling, no iteration of the IFS remains doubling. We also obtain positive results under some quantitative assumptions on the separation of the images through the IFS. We also explore the completeness, in the Hausdorff-Kantorovich metric, of a version of the doubling property which is suitable for the application of Hutchinson type contractions.

An application is given to the almost everywhere convergence of solutions of the Schr\"odinger equation. Other Laguerre operators are also considered.

A unital $\ell$-group $(G,u)$ is an abelian group $G$ equipped with a translation-invariant lattice-order and a distinguished element $u$, called order-unit, whose positive integer multiples eventually dominate each element of $G$. We classify finitely generated unital $\ell$-groups by sequences $\mathcal W = (W_{0},W_{1},\ldots)$ of weighted abstract simplicial complexes, where $W_{t+1}$ is obtained from $W_{t}$ either by the classical Alexander binary stellar operation, or by deleting a maximal simplex of $W_{t}$. A simple criterion is given to recognize when two such sequences classify isomorphic unital $\ell$-groups. Many properties of the unital $\ell$-group $(G,u)$ can be directly read off from its associated sequence: for instance, the properties of being totally ordered, archimedean, finitely presented, simplicial, free.

Graphic Processing Units have received much attention in last years. Compute-intensive algorithms operating on multidimensional arrays that have nearest neighbor dependency and/or exploit data locality can achieve massive speedups. Simulation of problems modeled by time-dependent Partial Differential Equations by using explicit time-stepping methods on structured grids is an instance of such GPU-friendly algorithms. Solvers for transient incompressible fluid flow cannot be developed in a fully explicit manner due to the incompressibility constraint. Segregated algorithms like the fractional step method require the solution of a Poisson problem for the pressure field at each time level. This stage is usually the most time-consuming one. This work discuss a solver for the pressure problem in applications using immersed boundary techniques in order to account for moving solid bodies. This solver is based on standard Conjugate Gradients iterations and depends on the availability of a fast Poisson solver on the whole domain to define a preconditioner. We provide a theoretical and numerical evidence on the advantages of our approach versus classical techniques based on fixed point iterations such as the Iterated Orthogonal Projection method.

The unsteady flow around a 155 mm projectile governed by the Navier-Stokes (NS) equations is numerically solved with a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) scheme, together with the Sub- Grid Scale (SGS) solved by a Smagorinsky model and the van Driest near-wall damping. The computed results are obtained in the subsonic flow regime for a viscous and incompressible Newtonian fluid in order to determine the axial drag coefficient, and they are validated against experimental data. The problem was solved by a monolithic finite element code for parallel computing on a Beowulf cluster.

An indirect boundary integral equation for steady Stokes ﬂow around a rigid body in the three-dimensional space is proposed, and is numerically solved by using collocation and Galerkin weight- ing procedures. The resulting double surface integrals of the Galerkin technique that express the pairwise interaction among all boundary elements, which are quadruple integrals, are computed on ﬂat simplex triangles using a regularized quadrature scheme. Numerical examples include the steady creeping ﬂow around the sphere of unit radius and the cube of unit edge length, covering issues on the convergence under mesh reﬁnement and stability under small mesh perturbations.

The number and type of boundary conditions to be used in the numerical modeling of fluid mechanics problems is normally chosen according to a simplified analysis of the character- istics, and also from the experience of the modeler. The problem is harder at input/output boundaries which are, in most cases, artificial boundaries, so that a bad decision about the boundary conditions to be imposed may affect the precision and stability of the whole computation. For inviscid flows, the analysis of the sense of propagation in the normal di- rection to the boundaries gives the number of conditions to be imposed and, in addition, the conditions that are "absorbing" for the waves impinging normal to the boundary. In practice, it amounts to counting the number of positive and negative eigenvalues of the advective flux Jacobian projected onto the normal. The problem is still harder when the number of incoming characteristics varies during the computation, and to correctly treat these cases poses both mathematical and practical problems. One example considered here is compressible flow where the flow regime at a certain part of an inlet/outlet boundary can change from subsonic to supersonic and the flow can revert. In this work the technique for dynamically imposing the correct number of boundary conditions along the computation, using Lagrange multipliers and penalization is discussed, and several numerical examples are presented.

In this article we prove convergence of adaptive finite element methods for second order elliptic eigenvalue problems. We consider Lagrange finite elements of any degree and prove convergence for simple as well as multiple eigenvalues under a minimal refinement of marked elements, for all reasonable marking strategies, and starting from any initial triangulation.

Abstract: Surface diffusion is a (4th order highly nonlinear) geometric driven motion of a surface with normal velocity proportional to the surface Laplacian of mean curvature. We present a novel variational formulation for graphs and derive a priori error estimates for a time-continuous finite element discretization. We also introduce a semi-implicit time discretization and a Schur complement approach to solve the resulting fully discrete, linear systems. After computational verification of the orders of convergence for polynomial degrees 1 and 2, we show several simulations in 1d and 2d with and without forcing which explore the smoothing effect of surface diffusion as well as the onset of singularities in finite time, such as infinite slopes and cracks.
Keywords: Surface diffusion, fourth-order parabolic problem, finite elements, a priori error estimates, Schur complement, smoothing effect.

Trickle bed reactors (TBRs) are massively employed in petrochemical and chemical plants. In general these reactors have one or more beds filled up with catalyst particles. Efficient catalyst utilization relies on a good liquid charge distribution across the catalyst beds. However, normally the distribution is not perfect and some parts of the beds will get less liquid reactants while others will get more than the average. In zones where there is a maldistribution of reactants the reaction will progress in undesirable way leading to deactivation of the catalyst and towards low conversions. Bad tray efficiency due to non-uniform liquid distribution will result in low reactor efficiency and shorten the catalyst's cycle time. The TBR analyzed here is a hydrogenation one that processes C4 (liquid) and hydrogen (gas) to produce butene 1 (also named α butylene). The two-phase charge is introduced through the upper side of the TBR and the liquid phase accumulates on the tray to a certain level swamping the perforated-plate tray. The liquid phase flows down through 68 small holes while the gas phase circulates through 7 gas chimneys. There is another ceramic-ball bed above the catalyst bed with the aim to obtain a better distribution of the charge. In this work a computational fluid dynamics analysis (CFD) employing the Eulerian two-fluid model was carried out with the aim to understand the fluid dynamics of the distribution process and to determine the wetting efficiency of the tray distributor under different operating conditions. The small tray holes were modeled by sinks (drains) and sources, firstly employing numerical and experimental models to obtain the flow rate versus liquid height response. Because of the scarce liquid sloshing above the tray, little differences on the liquid discharge through the holes were found. Due to the low gas fraction of the charge the liquid flows only by gravity following an almost vertical trajectory from the holes to the ceramic ball bed. So, the extension of the wetted zone at the top of the ceramic ball bed is small. A suitable correlation to estimate liquid diffusion inside the ceramic-ball bed was employed, showing that the overall catalyst bed surface is wetted but significant differences on liquid fraction are found. Moreover, a possible additional cause of the low TBR efficiency could be the well known fouling vulnerability of this kind of tray distributors. In this sense, two simple geometric modifications were proposed to enhance tray performance; firstly reducing the amount of gas chimneys to only one, thus adding additional drip points, secondly replacing the holes by short risers in order to reduce the vulnerability to plugging.

We obtain a comparison of the level sets for two maximal functions on a space of homogeneous type: the Hardy-Littlewood maximal function of mean values over balls and the dyadic maximal function of mean values over the
dyadic sets introduced by M. Christ in [4]. As applications to the theory of Ap weights on this setting, we compare the standard and the dyadic Muckenhoupt
classes and we give an alternative proof of reverse Hölder type inequalities.

The iterative solution of linear systems arising from panel method
discretization of three-dimensional (3D) exterior potential problems
coming mainly from aero-hydrodynamic engineering problems, is
discussed. We propose an original peconditioning based on an
approximate eigenspace decomposition, that corrects bad conditioning
arising from pair of surfaces that are very close from each other,
which is a very common situation in slender wings and other
aerodynamoc profiles. This preconditioning has been tested with the
standard Bi-Conjugate Gradient (BCG) and Conjugate Gradient Squared
(CGS) iterative methods.

Principal fitted components for dimension reduction in regression

We provide a remedy for two concerns that have dogged the use of principal components in regression: (i) principal components are computed from the predictors alone and do not make apparent use of the response, and (ii) principal components are not invariant or equivariant under full rank linear transformation of the predictors. The development begins with principal fitted components [Cook, R. D. (2007). Fisher lecture: Dimension reduction in regression (with discussion). Statist. Sci. 22 126] and uses normal models for the inverse regression of the predictors on the response to gain reductive information for the forward regression of interest. This approach includes methodology for testing hypotheses about the number of components and about conditional independencies among the predictors.

In this paper we present some results on the time integration stability when solving fluid/structure interaction problems with strong coupled staged strategies. The flutter of a flat plate faced with a fluid at Mach between 1.8 and 3 is taken as a benchmark. The precision of differ- ent predictor strategies and the influence of the partitioned strong coupling on stability is discussed. [Submitted to Journal of Sound and Vibration]

Full Numerical Quadrature in Galerkin Boundary Element Methods

When a Galerkin discretization of a boundary integral equation with a weakly singular kernel is performed over triangles, a double surface integral must be evaluated for each pair of them. If these pairs are not contiguous nor the same, the kernel is regular and a Gauss-Legendre quadrature can be employed. But, when they have a common edge or a common vertex, then edge and vertex weak sin- gularities appear, while autointegrals have both facets coincidents and the whole integration domain is weakly singular. Taylor (IEEE Trans. on Antennas and Propagation, 51(7):1630–1637 (2003)) proposed a systematic evaluation, based on a reordering and partition of the integration domain, together a use of the Duffy transformations in order to remove the singularities, in such a way that a Gauss-Legendre quadrature was performed on three coordinates with an analytic one in the fourth one. Since this scheme is a bit restrictive because it was designed for electromagnetic wave propagation kernels, a full numer- ical quadrature on the four coordinates is proposed here in order to handle other kernels, like those of creeping flows. A numerical test is also proposed based on slight modification of the Wang-Atalla one (Comm. in Num. Meth. Eng., 13(0):1–7 (1997)).

Weighted inequalities and pointwise estimates for the multilinear fractional integral and maximal operators
Articles

url:https://cimec.org.ar/ojs/index.php/cmm/article/view/2386

In this article we prove weighted norm inequalities and pointwise estimates between the multilinear fractional integral operator and the multilinear fractional maximal. As a consequence of these estimations we obtain weighted weak and strong inequalities for the multilinear fractional integral operator. In particular, we extend some results given in \cite{CPSS} to the multilinear context. On the other hand we prove weighted pointwise estimates between the multilinear fractional maximal operator ${\cal M}_{\alpha,B}$ associated to a Young function $B$ and the multilinear maximal operators ${\cal M}_{\psi}={\cal M}_{0,\psi}$, $\psi(t)=B(t^{1-\alpha/(nm)})^{{nm}/{(nm-\alpha)}}$. As an application of these estimate we obtain a direct proof of the $L^p-L^q$ boundedness results of ${\cal M}_{\alpha,B}$ for the case $B(t)=t$ and $B_k(t)=t(1+\log^+t)^k$ when $1/q=1/p-\alpha/n$. We also give sufficient conditions on the weights involved in the boundedness results of ${\cal M}_{\alpha,B}$ that generalizes those given in \cite{M} for $B(t)=t$. Finally, we prove some boundedness results in Banach function spaces for a generalized version of the multilinear fractional maximal operator.
