dc.description.abstractWe extend and analyze the VMS method to partial differential equations with stochastic coefficients. For a natural choice of an "optimal" coarse-scale solution and L2-orthogonal stochastic basis functions, we demonstrate that the fine-scale stochastic Green's function is intimately linked to its deterministic counterpart. Further, we prove whenever the deterministic fine-scale function vanishes, the stochastic fine-scale function satisfies a weaker, and discrete notion of vanishing stochastic coefficients. Using the theoretical insights, we argue how approximations to enable a practical implementation of the VMS method can be made. Subsequently, on select model problems we demonstrate how we gain improved statistics of the solution at a much lower computational cost.
dc.description.abstractMultiscale phenomena are integral to most processes which can be modeled as wave propagation problems. The goal of this work is to explore the use of variational multiscale (VMS) techniques for deterministic and stochastic time-harmonic wave propagation problems.
dc.description.abstractWe construct a non-overlapping domain decomposition method for time-harmonic Maxwell's equations. Using perfectly matched layers to enforce pseudo-differential interface conditions; we capture the outgoing wave from one sub-domain, and enforce it as an incoming wave to the corresponding adjacent neighbor. We demonstrate numerically how this turns out to be a computationally inexpensive method with fast convergence.
dc.description.abstractWe prove the efficacy of the Galerkin least squares (GLS) technique for time-harmonic Maxwell equations. The GLS method can be categorized under the ambit of the VMS framework. A modified variational formulation constructed by appending the weighted coarse-scale residual characterizes the new method. Using a dispersion analysis procedure we design the parameter weighting the residual, and show how the dispersion error can be nulled with ;a-priori knowledge of the direction of propagation of the wave, and in general reduced for an arbitrary direction of propagation. The claims are illustrated using numerical examples.
