Nonnormality in Lyapunov Equations
The singular values of the solution to a Lyapunov equation determine the potential accuracy of the low-rank approximations constructed by iterative methods. Low-rank solutions are more accurate if most of the singular ...
Black Oil Simulation Utilizing a Central Finite Volume Scheme
Black-oil simulation is a valuable tool in predicting the multi-phase multi-component flow of fluids in reservoirs. This research validates the use of a central high resolution finite volume scheme developed by Kurganov ...
Clique Generalizations and Related Problems
A large number of real-world problems can be model as optimization problems in graphs. The clique model was introduced to aid the study of network structure for social interaction. Each vertex represented an actor and the ...
Accelerating Convergence by Augmented Rayleigh-Ritz Projections For Large-Scale Eigenpair Computation
Iterative algorithms for large-scale eigenpair computation are mostly based subspace projections consisting of two main steps: a subspace update (SU) step that generates bases for approximate eigenspaces, followed by a ...
Born Waveform Inversion in Shot Coordinate Domain
The goal of this thesis is to integrate Born waveform inversion, variable projection algorithm and model extension concept to get a method that can improve the long scale background model updates reliably and efficiently ...
Optimal Control of Flow and Transport Equations Using Discontinuous Galerkin Methods
This thesis analyzes the accuracy of discontinuous Galerkin methods for solving optimal control problems for flow and transport equations. The optimality conditions for each optimal control problem and error estimates for ...
