The solutions of the flow field and the interface motion are decoupled in an alternating way. For a given interface, the velocity field is solved via a pressure Poisson equation formulation of the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations, which is numerically discretized by the immersed interface method. Once the velocity field is obtained, the interfacial kinematics together with the CAC is reformulated into a variational system, which is solved by the parametric finite element method (FEM). With this hybrid method, we detect topological changes in the interface by the inconsistency of neighboring normal vectors, which are directly computed through the parametric FEM. Second-order accuracy of the proposed method in both the interface and the contact line positions before and after topological changes has been numerically validated. Moreover, with the help of the numerical method, the merging and collision dynamics of droplets on the substrates are easily investigated.}, journal={COMPUTERS & FLUIDS}, author={Chai, Shuqing and Li, Zhilin and Zhang, Zhen and Zhang, Zhiwen}, year={2024}, month={Jan} }

Numerical solutions are often necessary since analytic solutions to such problems are rarely available. A Kevin’s transformation that transforms an infinite domain to a finite one is one of approaches in dealing with infinite domain problems. In this paper, studies are carried out on when and how the transformation method can be applied to solve differential equations defined on large or infinite domains. Some new coupled transformation methods are proposed with convergence analysis. The proposed methods work well for certain problems, for example, that have reasonably decay rates. With the new approach, no artificial or truncated boundary conditions are needed. The key idea is to use a transformation to divide an infinite domain problem to a coupled two-domain problem that can be solved simultaneously. Convergence analysis provided some insights about conditions that the new methods can be applied to.

With this information, it is possible to compute correction terms for the B-spline bases of the spline that are affected by the presence of singularities. The result is a piecewise smooth reconstruction with full accuracy (meaning by full accuracy , the accuracy of the spline at smooth zones).

Firstly, we derive a fourth-order compact finite difference scheme to discretize the 3D anisotropic convection–diffusion equation on a rectilinear grid. Then, the resulting large-scale asymmetric linear system of equations is solved by a generalized extrapolation cascadic multigrid (gEXCMG) method based on two novel multigrid (MG) prolongation operators. The highlight of this paper is the application of the quintic Lagrange interpolation and the completed Richardson extrapolation in the design of the new MG prolongation operator on nonuniform rectilinear grids, which can produce a good initial guess (sixth-order approximation to the finite difference solution) for the SSOR-preconditioned biconjugate gradient stabilized (BiCGStab) smoother. In the end, numerical experiments show that the gEXCMG method combined with the HOC scheme can achieve fourth-order accuracy for 3D anisotropic convection–diffusion problems with few smoothing steps on the finest grid.

We show that those IFE methods without penalties are not guaranteed to converge optimally if the tangential derivative of the exact solution and the jump of the coefficient are not zero on the interface. A nontrivial counter example is also provided to support our theoretical analysis. To recover the optimal convergence rates, we develop a new nonconforming IFE method with additional terms locally on interface edges. The new method is parameter-free which removes the limitation of the conventional partially penalized IFE method. We show the IFE basis functions are unisolvent on arbitrary triangles which is not considered in the literature.

Different from traditional finite difference operator approach, which may not work for flux type of boundary conditions, carefully designed undetermined coefficient methods are utilized in developing high order compact (HOC) schemes. The new methods not only can be utilized to design HOC schemes for flux type of boundary conditions but can also be applied to general elliptic PDEs including Poisson, Helmholtz, diffusion-advection, and anisotropic equations with linear boundary conditions. In the new developed HOC methods, the coefficient matrices are generally M-matrices, which guarantee the discrete maximum principle for well-posed problems, so the convergence of the HOC methods. The developed HOC methods are versatile and can cover most of high order compact schemes in the literature. The HOC methods for Robin boundary conditions and for anisotropic diffusion and advection equations with Robin or even Dirichlet boundary conditions are likely the first ones that have ever been developed. With the help of pseudo-inverse, or SVD solutions, we have also observed that the developed HOC methods usually have smaller error constants compared with traditional HOC methods when applicable.

The more flexible separate hyperplanes are preferred using the order information of the data. As a result, this approach only needs to solve K quadratic programming problems independently.

The results show that our approach NPHORM is comparable with the other SVM-based approaches, especially in real ordinal regression datasets.

At irregular grid points, correction terms are added to the finite difference scheme to offset the discontinuities. The correction terms are determined directly by an interpolation scheme using the values of both the velocity and pressure at nearby grid points. The resulted linear system of equations is rank-one deficient and is solved by the Uzawa iterative method. In each Uzawa iteration, an inner GMRES solver is used and preconditioned by the discrete Laplacian. The computed numerical solutions are second order accurate in the L∞ norm for both the velocity and pressure, which is demonstrated in numerical tests. Compared with the augmented interface method (AIIM), one of advantages of this approach is that it avoids the costs for introducing augmented variables and difficulties in solving them from the corresponding Schur complement system.

The finite difference discretization in time is based on the pressure Poisson equation formulation. At each time step, several augmented variables along the interface between the fluid flow and the porous media are introduced so that the coupled equations can be decoupled into several Poisson/Helmholtz equations with those augmented variables acting as jumps of the unknown solution and some directional derivatives. The augmented variables should be chosen so that the Beavers–Joseph–Saffman (BJS) or Beavers–Joseph (BJ) and other interface conditions are satisfied. It has been tested that a direct extension of the augmented idea in [27] does not work well when the fluid flow is modeled by the Navier–Stokes equations. One of the new ideas of this paper is to enforce the divergence free condition at the interface from the fluid side. In this way, the Schur complement matrix for the augmented variables is over-determined and the least squares solution is used for the coupling problem. The new augmented approach enables us to solve the Navier–Stokes and Darcy coupling efficiently with second order accurate velocity and pressure in the L∞ norm for tested problems. The proposed new idea in enforcing the divergence free condition at the interface from the fluid side has also been utilized to solve the Stokes and Darcy coupling equations and shown to outperform the original method in [27].

In this way, the leading second order derivatives jump relations are independent of the jump in the coefficient that appears only in the lower order terms after the scaling.

The objectives were to rank pesticides by comparing their calculated daily dietary exposure as determined by EPA's Stochastic Human Exposure and Dose Simulation (SHEDS) to single pesticides for different age groups to acceptable daily intakes (ADI), characterize pesticide trends in exposures over different time periods, and determine commodities contributing to pesticide exposures. SHEDS was applied, using Pesticide Data Program (PDP) (1991-2011) and pesticide usage data on crops from USDA combined with NHANES dietary consumption data, to generate exposure estimates by age group. ADI data collected from EPA, WHO, and other sources were used to rank pesticides based on relativeness of the dietary exposure potential to ADI by age groups. Sensitivity analysis provided trends in pesticide exposures. Within SHEDS, commodities contributing the majority of pesticides with greatest exposure potential were determined. The results indicated that the highest ranking pesticides were methamidophos and diazinon which exceeded 100% of the ADI. Sensitivity analysis indicated that exposure to methamidophos, diazinon, malathion, ethion and formetanate hydrochloride had a marked decrease from 1991-1999 to 2000-2011.

AIIM has been developed recently and is shown to be very effective for interface problems and problems on irregular domains. GMRES is often used to solve for the augmented variable(s) associated with a Schur complement A in AIIM that is defined along the interface or the irregular boundary. The efficiency of AIIM relies on how quickly the system for A can be solved. For some applications, there are substantial difficulties involved, such as the slow convergence of GMRES (particularly for free boundary and moving interface problems), and the inconvenience in finding a preconditioner (due to the situation that only the products of A and vectors are available). Here, we propose matrix-free structured preconditioning techniques for AIIM via adaptive randomized sampling, using only the products of A and vectors to construct a hierarchically semiseparable matrix approximation to A. Several improvements over existing schemes are shown so as to enhance the efficiency and also avoid potential instability. The significance of the preconditioners includes: (1) they do not require the entries of A or the multiplication of AT with vectors; (2) constructing the preconditioners needs only O(logN) matrix–vector products and O(N) storage, where N is the size of A; (3) applying the preconditioners needs only O(N) flops; (4) they are very flexible and do not require any a priori knowledge of the structure of A. The preconditioners are observed to significantly accelerate the convergence of GMRES, with heuristical justifications of the effectiveness. Comprehensive tests on several important applications are provided, such as Navier–Stokes equations on irregular domains with traction boundary conditions, interface problems in incompressible flows, mixed boundary problems, and free boundary problems. The preconditioning techniques are also useful for several other problems and methods.}, journal={JOURNAL OF COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS}, author={Xia, Jianlin and Li, Zhilin and Ye, Xin}, year={2015}, month={Dec}, pages={295–312} }

In these approaches, the molecular solute is treated as a low dielectric region and the solvent is treated as a high dielectric continuum. The existence of a sharp dielectric jump at the solute-solvent interface poses a challenge to model the solvation energetics accurately with such a simple mathematical model. In this study, we explored and evaluated a strategy based on the "induced surface charge" to eliminate the dielectric jump within the finite-difference discretization scheme. In addition to the use of the induced surface charges in solving the equation, the second-order accurate immersed interface method is also incorporated to discretize the equation. The resultant linear system is solved with the GMRES algorithm to explicitly impose the flux conservation condition across the solvent-solute interface.

It is usually difficult and expensive to obtain large longitudinal data sets for human exposure studies. This article reports a new simulation method to generate longitudinal data with flexible numbers of subjects and days. Mixed models are used to describe the variance‐covariance structures of input longitudinal data. Based on estimated model parameters, simulation data are generated with similar statistical characteristics compared to the input data. Three criteria are used to determine similarity: the overall mean and standard deviation, the variance components percentages, and the average autocorrelation coefficients. Upon the discussion of mixed models, a simulation procedure is produced and numerical results are shown through one human exposure study. Simulations of three sets of exposure data successfully meet above criteria. In particular, simulations can always retain correct weights of inter‐ and intrasubject variances as in the input data. Autocorrelations are also well followed. Compared with other simulation algorithms, this new method stores more information about the input overall distribution so as to satisfy the above multiple criteria for statistical targets.

For example, the core part of many efficient solvers for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations is to solve one or several Helmholtz equations. In this paper, two new finite difference methods are proposed for solving Helmholtz equations on irregular domains, or with interfaces. For Helmholtz equations on irregular domains, the accuracy of the numerical solution obtained using the existing augmented immersed interface method (AIIM) may deteriorate when the magnitude of λ is large. In our new method, we use a level set function to extend the source term and the PDE to a larger domain before we apply the AIIM. For Helmholtz equations with interfaces, a new maximum principle preserving finite difference method is developed. The new method still uses the standard five-point stencil with modifications of the finite difference scheme at irregular grid points. The resulting coefficient matrix of the linear system of finite difference equations satisfies the sign property of the discrete maximum principle and can be solved efficiently using a multigrid solver. The finite difference method is also extended to handle temporal discretized equations where the solution coefficient λ is inversely proportional to the mesh size.}, number={4}, journal={DISCRETE AND CONTINUOUS DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS-SERIES B}, author={Wan, Xiaohai and Li, Zhilin}, year={2012}, month={Jun}, pages={1155–1174} }

The problem with this representation is that the volume force exhibits non-physical oscillations in moving boundary simulations. A smoothing technique for discrete delta functions has been developed in this paper to suppress the non-physical oscillations in the volume forces. We have found that the non-physical oscillations are mainly due to the fact that the derivatives of the regular discrete delta functions do not satisfy certain moment conditions. It has been shown that the smoothed discrete delta functions constructed in this paper have one-order higher derivative than the regular ones. Moreover, not only the smoothed discrete delta functions satisfy the first two discrete moment conditions, but also their derivatives satisfy one-order higher moment condition than the regular ones. The smoothed discrete delta functions are tested by three test cases: a one-dimensional heat equation with a moving singular force, a two-dimensional flow past an oscillating cylinder, and the vortex-induced vibration of a cylinder. The numerical examples in these cases demonstrate that the smoothed discrete delta functions can effectively suppress the non-physical oscillations in the volume forces and improve the accuracy of the immersed boundary method with direct forcing in moving boundary simulations.}, number={20}, journal={JOURNAL OF COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS}, author={Yang, Xiaolei and Zhang, Xing and Li, Zhilin and He, Guo-Wei}, year={2009}, month={Nov}, pages={7821–7836} }

In this work, we introduce the velocity components at the membrane as two augmented unknown interface variables to decouple the originally coupled jump conditions for the velocity and pressure. Three forms of augmented equation are derived to determine the augmented variables to satisfy the continuous condition of the velocity. The velocity at the membrane, which determine the motion of the membrane, is then solved by the GMRES iterative method. The forces calculated from the configuration of the flexible elastic membrane and the augmented variables are interpolated using cubic splines and applied to the fluid through the jump conditions. The position of the flexible elastic membrane is updated implicitly using a quasi-Newton method (BFGS) within each time step. The Navier–Stokes equations are solved on a staggered Cartesian grid using a second order accurate projection method with the incorporation of spatial and temporal jump conditions. In addition, we also show that the inclusion of the temporal jump contributions has non-negligible effect on the simulation results when the grids are crossed by the membrane.

The tissue mechanics are assumed to be those of fluids, and the hypothesized traction forces are modeled as advected by the deformations which they generate. We find that mesenchymal traction forces are sufficient to generate a cleft of the correct size and morphology, in the correct time frame. We find that viscosity of the tissues affects the time course of morphogenesis, and also affects the resulting form of the organ. Morphology is also strongly dependent on the initial distribution of contractility.

The method can be straightforwardly extended to three-dimensions and to soluble surfactants. The method couples a semi-implicit discretization for solving the surfactant transport equation recently developed by Xu and Zhao [J. Xu, H. Zhao. An Eulerian formulation for solving partial differential equations along a moving interface, J. Sci.

Novel techniques are developed to accurately conserve component mass and surfactant mass during the evolution. Convergence of the method is demonstrated numerically. The method is applied to study the effects of surfactant on single drops, drop–drop interactions and interactions among multiple drops in Stokes flow under a steady applied shear. Due to Marangoni forces and to non-uniform Capillary forces, the presence of surfactant results in larger drop deformations and more complex drop–drop interactions compared to the analogous cases for clean drops. The effects of surfactant are found to be most significant in flows with multiple drops.

In the domain, there can exists an interface across which the source term, the flux, and therefore the solution may be discontinuous. The existence and uniqueness of the solution are also discussed. To deal with the discontinuity in the source term and in the flux, the original problem is transformed to a new one with a smooth solution. Such a transformation can be carried out easily through an extension of the jumps along the normal direction if the interface is expressed as the zero level set of a three-dimensional function. An auxiliary sphere is used to separate the infinite region into an interior and exterior domain. The Kelvin's inversion is used to map the exterior domain into an interior domain. The two Poisson equations defined in the interior and the exterior written in spherical coordinates are solved simultaneously. By choosing the mesh size carefully and exploiting the fast Fourier transform, the resulting finite difference equations can be solved efficiently.

The solution to the weighted minimal surface problem is continuous but the derivatives have a jump across the interface where the medium property is discontinuous. The jump condition of the derivatives derived in this paper generalized the Snell's law in geometric optics to weighted minimal surfaces of co-dimension one in any dimensional space. A numerical method based on the gradient flow and the maximum principal preserving immersed interface method is developed to solve this nonlinear elliptic interface problem with jump conditions. Numerical computations are presented to verify both the analysis and the numerical algorithm. 1. Introduction. The minimal surface problem, that is, the problem of finding the surface of the least area among all surfaces having fixed boundary data, has been extensively studied. A recent workshop on minimal surfaces presented the latest re- search on minimal surface applications in chemistry and biology (5). Many phenomena that occur in nature relate to this problem which has been a motivation for devel- oping new mathematical theories and techniques to solve the problem analytically and numerically. Minimal surfaces were shown to be important in various chemical micro-structures and their corresponding phase transitions (5). Computer graphics and image analysis use minimal surfaces frequently for boundary detection, and to construct surfaces that are visually appealing (2), (15). Soap films and other mem- branes passing through a fixed boundary provide mechanical examples of minimal surfaces (14). A related concept is the idea of capillary surfaces, which result from surface tension in liquids. These surfaces are closely related to minimal surfaces (6). For a precise mathematical description of the minimal surface problem we refer, for example, to the classical treatises (7) and (16). The minimal surface problem can be described in two different ways, using the parametric or the non-parametric formulation. In the non-parametric setting the candidate surfaces are graphs of functions, while in the parametric setting the surfaces are treated as boundaries of sets (7). The former is usually seen in more physically- based treatments of the problem, whereas the later provides an excellent framework for the mathematical analysis of minimal surfaces. When the medium is homogeneous, the energy density at each point is constant, and therefore the surface energy is equivalent to the surface area. This is the standard minimal surface problem. In this paper, we consider the weighted minimal surface problem in a heterogeneous medium in which the energy density is piecewise smooth. For example this is the case for capillary interfaces in porous media or composite materials. In particular we derive a jump condition for the weighted minimal surface at the interface between two different media. The jump condition can be regarded as a generalized Snell's law which describes the "refraction" of minimal surfaces instead of light rays in geometric optics.}, number={2}, journal={Methods and Applications of Analysis}, publisher={International Press of Boston}, author={Li, Zhilin and Lin, Xiaobiao and Torres, Monica and Zhao, Hongkai}, year={2003}, pages={199–214} }

One of the essential components of the method is the usage of certain discrete delta functions to deal with singular forces along one or several interfaces in the fluid domain.

In this paper, we propose an immersed interface method for the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations with singular forces along one or several interfaces in the solution domain. The new method is based on a second-order projection method with modifications only at grid points near or on the interface. From the derivation of the new method, we expect fully second-order accuracy for the velocity and nearly second-order accuracy for the pressure in the maximum norm including those grid points near or on the interface. This has been confirmed in our numerical experiments. Furthermore, the computed solutions are sharp across the interface.

Using the general theorem we then list all the lattices and type maps of the ( J , σ)-irreducible monoids of Suzuki type and Ree type.}, number={1}, journal={Journal of Algebra}, author={Li, Zhilin and Putcha, M.}, year={1999}, pages={102–116} }

We assume that there is an irregular interface across which the coefficient $\beta$, the solution u and its derivatives, and/or the source term f may have jumps. We are especially interested in the cases where the coefficients $\beta$ are piecewise constant and the jump in $\beta$ is large. The interface may or may not align with an underlying Cartesian grid. The idea in our approach is to precondition the differential equation before applying the immersed interface method proposed by LeVeque and Li [ SIAM J. Numer. Anal., 4 (1994), pp. 1019--1044]. In order to take advantage of fast Poisson solvers on a rectangular region, an intermediate unknown function, the jump in the normal derivative across the interface, is introduced. Our discretization is equivalent to using a second-order difference scheme for a corresponding Poisson equation in the region, and a second-order discretization for a Neumann-like interface condition. Thus second-order accuracy is guaranteed. A GMRES iteration is employed to solve the Schur complement system derived from the discretization. A new weighted least squares method is also proposed to approximate interface quantities from a grid function. Numerical experiments are provided and analyzed. The number of iterations in solving the Schur complement system appears to be independent of both the jump in the coefficient and the mesh size.}, number={1}, journal={SIAM JOURNAL ON NUMERICAL ANALYSIS}, author={Li, ZL}, year={1998}, month={Feb}, pages={230–254} }

The physical parameters involved may be discontinuous across the joint of the two materials, where there might be also singular heat and/or force sources. The solution components, the temperature and the displacement, may change rapidly across the joint. By transforming the system into a different one, time-marching schemes can be used for the new system which is well posed. The immersed interface method is employed to deal with the discontinuities of the coefficients and the singular sources. The proposed numerical method can fit both explicit and implicit formulation. For the implicit version, a stable and fast prediction-correction scheme is also developed. Convergence analysis shows that our method is second-order accurate at all grid points in spite of the discontinuities across the interface.

The moving interfaces then are updated using the newly developed fast level set formulation which involves computation only inside some small tubes containing the interfaces. This method combines the advantage of the two approaches and gives a second-order Eulerian discretization for interface problems. Several key steps in the implementation are addressed in detail.

It is assumed that $\Omega $ is a simple region (e.g., a rectangle) and that a uniform rectangular grid is used. The situation is studied in which there is an irregular surface $\Gamma $ of codimension 1 contained in $\Omega $ across which $\beta ,\kappa $, and f may be discontinuous, and along which the source f may have a delta function singularity. As a result, derivatives of the solution u may be discontinuous across $\Gamma $. The specification of a jump discontinuity in u itself across $\Gamma $ is allowed. It is shown that it is possible to modify the standard centered difference approximation to maintain second order accuracy on the uniform grid even when $\Gamma $ is not aligned with the grid. This approach is also compared with a discrete delta function approach to handling singular sources, as used in Peskin’s immersed boundary method.}, number={4}, journal={SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis}, publisher={Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM)}, author={LeVeque, Randall J. and Li, Zhilin}, year={1994}, month={Aug}, pages={1019–1044} }
