|Title:||Mathematical models for enhanced oil recovery in petroleum engineering
In this talk we will visit various models in the literature for enhanced oil recovery (or enhanced oil recovery) in petroleum engineering. We will look at two phase flow with multiple components, as well as the three phase flow model. The focus will be on the saturation equations, which are conservation laws, possibly with mixed type.
