Teaching and lecture notes
Numerical methods for
- Stiff ordinary differential equations,
- Time-dependent partial differential equations,
- Streamer simulations.
Current and recent projects:
Multirate Time Stepping for stiff ODEs and PDEs.
Valeriu Savcenco (former PhD student) and
financed through NWO by a
Peterich scolarship, 2004-2008.
Research continued with explicit methods and applications to hyperbolic
Monotonicity Preservation for Time Stepping Schemes.
Project with Anna Mozartova (PhD student);
Marc Spijker (Leiden Univ.) and
Steve Ruuth (SFU, Canada); financing by NWO, 2007-2011.
Research continued with a grant from KAUST, 2010-2014: collaboration project
David Ketcheson ,
Sigal Gottlieb and
Zoltan Horvath .
Ute Ebert in the research theme
Multiscale Dynamics .
Computational research projects:
Grid refinements for streamer simulations:
Carolynne Montijn (former PhD student, now at NLR, Amsterdam).
Part of the
Computational Science Programme of NWO, 2001-2006.
Coupling PDEs with Monte-Carlo models for streamers:
Li Chao (C. Li); part of the BRICKS-MSV project, 2005-2009.
Large scale numerical streamer simulations (with photo-ionizations, 3D)
were also performed in the STW-project of
Alejandro Luque (at that time postdoc at CWI).
With new PhD students, we will try to create in our research group a
genuine 3D code, using suitable grid refinements, fast solvers, parallelism,
