Numerical Approximations Of Phase Field Equations With Physics Informed Neural Networks, Colby Wight 2020 Utah State University

Numerical Approximations Of Phase Field Equations With Physics Informed Neural Networks, Colby Wight

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Designing numerical algorithms for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) is one of the major research branches in applied and computational mathematics. Recently there has been some seminal work on solving PDEs using the deep neural networks. In particular, the Physics Informed Neural Network (PINN) has been shown to be effective in solving some classical partial differential equations. However, we find that this method is not sufficient in solving all types of equations and falls short in solving phase-field equations. In this thesis, we propose various techniques that add to the power of these networks. Mainly, we propose to embrace the ...


"A Comparison Of Variable Selection Methods Using Bootstrap Samples From Environmental Metal Mixture Data", Paul-Yvann Djamen 4785403, Paul-Yvann Djamen 2020 University Of New Mexico

"A Comparison Of Variable Selection Methods Using Bootstrap Samples From Environmental Metal Mixture Data", Paul-Yvann Djamen 4785403, Paul-Yvann Djamen

Mathematics & Statistics ETDs

In this thesis, I studied a newly developed variable selection method SODA, and three customarily used variable selection methods: LASSO, Elastic net, and Random forest for environmental mixture data. The motivating datasets have neuro-developmental status as responses and metal measurements and demographic variables as covariates. The challenges for variable selections include (1) many measured metal concentrations are highly correlated, (2) there are many possible ways of modeling interactions among the metals, (3) the relationships between the outcomes and explanatory variables are possibly nonlinear, (4) the signal to noise ratio in the real data may be low. To compare these methods ...


Modeling The Effects Of Fentanyl And Narcan On The Opioid Epidemic In Allegheny County Using Mathematics, Lindsay Moskal, Lauren Sines, Rachael Neilan Ph.D. 2020 Duquesne University

Modeling The Effects Of Fentanyl And Narcan On The Opioid Epidemic In Allegheny County Using Mathematics, Lindsay Moskal, Lauren Sines, Rachael Neilan Ph.D.

Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium

Starting in the 1990s, physicians across the United States have increasingly prescribed opioid pain relievers, which has given rise to the current opioid epidemic. As a result, there has been a drastic increase in the number of overdose fatalities. In 2017, the number of opioid overdose deaths peaked and the U.S. declared the crisis as a public health emergency. One state that has contributed significantly to this epidemic is Pennsylvania, which ranks first for the greatest number of overdose deaths and third for the highest death rate. In fact, Allegheny County has witnessed an overdose death rate that is ...

The Boundary Element Method For Parabolic Equation And Its Implementation In Bem++, Sihao Wang 2020 Southern Methodist University

The Boundary Element Method For Parabolic Equation And Its Implementation In Bem++, Sihao Wang

Mathematics Theses and Dissertations

The goal of this work is to develop a fast method for solving Galerkin discretizations of boundary integral formulations of the heat equation. The main contribution of this work is to devise a new fast algorithm for evaluating the dense matrices of the discretized integral equations.

Similar to the parabolic FMM, this method is based on a subdivision of the matrices into an appropriate hierarchical block structure. However, instead of an expansion of the kernel in both space and time we interpolate kernel in the temporal variables and use of the adaptive cross approximation (ACA) in the spatial variables.
