MPFA Discretization on Quadrilateral Grids

Thursday, May 13, 2004 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Keller 3-180
Ivar Aavatsmark (University of Bergen)
The presentation will give an overview of the MPFA methods and its applications in multiphase flow in porous media. Recent progress on the theoretical side will be covered: Convergence proof for one MPFA method, monotonicity properties in the homogeneous case, new variants of the MPFA method, convergence properties when the Edwards splitting is used as preconditioner.
