A generalized multiscale model reduction technique for heterogeneous problems
Thursday, February 11, 2016
3:30PM – 5PM
In this talk, I will discuss multiscale model reduction techniques for problems in heterogeneous media. I will describe a framework for constructing local (space-time) reduced order models for problems with multiple scales and high contrast. I will focus on a recently proposed method, Generalized Multiscale Finite Element Method, that systematically constructs local multiscale finite element basis functions on a coarse grid, which is much larger than the underlying resolved fine grid. The multiscale basis functions take into account the fine-scale information of the resolved solution space via careful choices of local snapshot spaces and local spectral decompositions. I will discuss the issues related to the construction of multiscale basis functions, main ingredients of the method, and a number of applications. These methods are intended for multiscale problems without scale separation and high contrast.
