|Title:||The classical Laplacian and the fractional Laplacian as limits of nonlocal diffusion operators|
|Seminar:||CCMA Luncheon Seminar|
|Speaker:||Marta D'Elia, Sandia Nat. Lab.|
|In this talk we introduce nonlocal operators and discuss their properties and possible applications. Using the nonlocal vector calculus, the nonlocal counterpart of the classical vector calculus, we analyze the connections between nonlocal diffusion operators and the local and fractional Laplacian. In particular, we show that as the nonlocal interactions vanish the nonlocal operators approach the classical Laplacian and as the nonlocal interactions become infinite they approach the fractional Laplacian and other fractional differential operators. In the latter case, we also show one-dimensional test cases that illustrate the theoretical results.|
