Title:Quasicontinuum Method: Methodology and Analysis
Seminar:CCMA PDEs and Numerical Methods Seminar Series
Speaker:Pingbing Ming, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China
In this talk, I will report some recent work for the mathematical understanding of quasicontinuum method, which is among the most successful multiscale methods for modeling the mechanical deformation of solids. The stability and accuracy of nonlocal quasicontinuum method will be discussed, and extensions to certain force based methods will also be covered. In particular, we will focus on the ghost-force problem in quasicontinuum method. This is joint work with Weinan E of Princeton University and Zhijian (Jerry) Yang of Caltech.
