Dr. Nilima Nigam: high-order FEM approximation on pyramids SFU Canada Research Chairs Seminar Series: "At the confluence of exterior calculus, approximation theory and numerical ***ysis: high-order FEM approximation on pyramids" Nilima Nigam Canada Research Chair in Applied Mathematics, Department Of Mathematics Feb 24, 2011 The finite element method is a popular technique for approximating weak solutions of PDE, particularly in the presence of geometric or structural features. Typically a physical domain is tessellated ('meshed') by either tetrahedral or hexahedral subdomains, and the global solution is approximated from locally-defined bases. High order approximation is achieved by a combination of mesh refinement and increased order of (local) approximants. How does one choose appropriate approximation spaces with a view to accuracy, stability and efficiency? This question has spurred an explosion of research over the last 4 decades, and recently been addressed in a systematic and elegant fashion by the finite element exterior calculus. In essence, discrete approximants must satisfy a discrete exact sequence property akin to the deRham sequence at the continuous level, and interpolants must allow for this pair of sequences to have a 'commuting diagram' property. Certain applications necessitate hybrid meshes consisting of both hexahedral and tetrahedral elements, which must then be glued together by pyramidal elements. For the past thirty years researchers have sought high-order finite elements for pyramids, with only partial ...

10. Reality and the Orbital Approximation Freshman Organic Chemistry (CHEM 125) In discussions of the Schrödinger equation thus far, the systems described were either one-dimensional or involved a single electron. After discussing how increased nuclear charge affects the energies of one-electron atoms and then discussing hybridization, this lecture finally addresses the simple fact that multi-electron systems cannot be properly described in terms of one-electron orbitals.

BLOSSOMS - The Art of Approximation in Science and Engineering: How to Whip Out Answers Quickly Visit the MIT BLOSSOMS website at blossoms.mit.edu Video Summary: The purpose of this learning video is to show students how to think more freely about math and science problems. The lesson presents some concepts in ways that students might not have seen in school. In particular, scientific calculations can be tedious and long. Many textbooks and teachers emphasize getting exactly the right answer. But sometimes getting an approximate answer in a much shorter period of time is well worth the time saved. This video explores techniques for making quick, back-of-the-envelope approximations that are not only surprisingly accurate, but are also illuminating for building intuition in understanding science. This video touches upon 10th-grade level Algebra I and first-year high school physics, but the concepts covered (velocity, distance, mass, etc) are basic enough that science-oriented younger students would understand. One class period is needed to complete the lesson and required materials include a blackboard and chalk. If desired, teachers may bring in pendula of various lengths, weights to hang, and a stopwatch to measure period. Examples of in- class exercises for between the video segments include: asking students to estimate 29 x 31 without a calculator or paper and pencil; and asking students how close they can get to a black hole without getting sucked in.
