A Computational approach to solving the M1 model for Radiative Transport

Dr. Prince Chidyagwai

Loyola University Maryland

March 21, 2018

Room: 309 Knott Hall

Two pictures of models dealing with radiative transport.

The M1 model is a system of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) that describes radiative transport in some physics and engineering applications. In this talk I will introduce the model and a computational approach for solving it. I will discuss numerical challenges posed by the system of PDEs and introduce the finite element method for solving PDEs. I will conclude with numerical results.

This talk will be accessible to Juniors and Seniors.
