Title:Transport of Charged Particles in Physical and Biological Environments: An Energetic Variational Approach
Seminar:Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Chun Liu, Penn State University
Abstract:
I will present a thermodynamics-consistent framework for studying the transport of charged particles in various environments. We will explore various physical and mathematical descriptions for 1) the free energy corresponding to the local and nonlocal interactions between particles as well as 2) dissipation mechanisms. For this talk, I will just focus on various classical and popular general diffusion problems, such as fractional Laplacian, porous media, nonlocal diffusion as well as various stochastic interpretations.
