I have told my students many times that it is important for computing professionals to have a broad knowledge, especially in Mathematics. There will be many instances that you will be called upon on projects those domains are entirely new. A solid background in Mathematics and exposures to latest development in various areas are important to the maturity of a computing professional.
Thus, I am happy to announce that a coming seminar by Dr. Roland Glowinski on the topic "Particle Clustering in Rotating Cylinder."
Dr. Roland Glowinski is Cullen Distinguished Professor of Mathematics and Mechanical Engineering, UH Member of French National Academy of Sciences, Member of Academia Europaea, Member of French National Academy of Technology.
The main goal of the lecture is to present recent results concerning the direct numerical simulation of clustering phenomena taking place in rotating cylinder filled with an incompressible Newtoninan viscous fluid and rigid solid particles. After a brief description of the computational methodology, Dr. Glowinski will show movies visualizing several clustering scenarios showing the importance of the spinning angular velocity concerning the formation of particle clusters.
The lecture will be hosted on Wednesday, April 23, 2008 4:00PM - 5:00PM at B1313. It is open to public and is targeting a general public audience. Refreshment will be served. Professor Lie June Shiau, UHCL Mathematics professor and a collaborator of Dr. Glowinski, will host the lecture.
Hope to see you there.
