- Rotation sets of dispersing billiards
We study the billiard ow in the exterior of a compact subset K of RN (N ≥ 3), where
K = K1 ∪ K2 ∪ ... ∪ Ks
is a union of pairwise disjoint compact and strictly convex bodies with smooth boundaries Ti = ∂Ki. Here, we do not assume the no-eclipse condition to be satisfied, and the billiard flow is considered to be a special case of dispersing billiards. We associate with it the map related to a starting point of a given billiard trajectory. In this talk, we give brief definitions of what is meant by dispersing billiards and rotation theory. Then, we present our main results and the methodologies we have used to obtain them.
- Generalized multiscale finite element methods for the reduced model of Darcy flow in fractured porous media
In this talk, we combine the generalized multiscale finite element method (GMsFEM) with a reduced model based on the discrete fracture model (DFM) to resolve the difficulties of simulating flow in fractured porous media while efficiently and accurately reducing the computational complexity resulted from resolving the fine scale effects of the fractures. The geometrical structure of the fractures is discretely resolved within the model using the DFM. The advantage of using GMsFEM is to represent the fracture effects on a coarse grid via multiscale basis functions constructed using local spectral problems. Solving local problems leads to consideration and usage of small scale information in each coarse grid. On another hand, the multiscale basis functions, generated following GMsFEM framework, are parameter independent and constructed once in what we call offline stage. These basis functions can be re-used for solving the problem for any input parameter when it is needed. Combining GMsFEM and DFM has been introduced in other works assuming continuous pressure across the fractures interface. This continuity is obtained when the fractures are much more permeable than that in the matrix domain. In this talk, we consider a general case for the permeability in both fracture and matrix domain using the reduced model presented in . The proposed reduction technique has significant impact on enabling engineers and scientists to efficiently, accurately and inexpensively solve the large and complex system resulted from modeling ow in fractured porous media.
- Wavelet-based Edge Multiscale Parareal Algorithm for subdiffusion equations with heterogeneous coefficients in a large time domain
I will present in this talk the Wavelet-based Edge Multiscale Parareal (WEMP) Algorithm recently proposed in  to efficiently solve subdiffusion equations with heterogeneous coefficients in long time. This algorithm combines the advantages of multiscale methods that can effectively deal with heterogeneity in the spatial domain, and the strength of parareal algorithms for speeding up time evolution problems when sufficient processors are available. Compared with the previous work for parabolic problem, the main challenge in both the analysis and simulation arise from the nonlocality of the fractional derivative. To conquer this obstacle, an auxiliary problem is constructed on each coarse temporal subdomain to uncouple the temporal variable completely. In this manner, the approximation properties of the correction operator is proved. In addition, a new summation of exponential sums is derived to generate single-step time stepping scheme, with the number of terms of O(|logτf|) independent of final time. Here, O(|logτf|) is the fine-scale time step size. We derive the convergence rate of this algorithm in terms of the mesh size in the spatial domain, the level parameter used in the multiscale method, the coarse-scale time step size and the fine-scale time step size. Several numerical tests are presented to demonstrate the performance of our algorithm, which verify our theoretical results perfectly.

- A benchmarking suite for geostatistical modeling and Kriging tools
In this talk, we propose a benchmarking suite over ExaGeoStatR, an R package for large-scale geospatial data modeling on manycore systems, to assess existing modeling/kriging tools. The benchmarking suite relies on synthetic datasets generated by the ExaGeoStatR package and predefined assessment metrics. We evaluate five existing R packages in the literature, i.e., Fields, GpGp, GeoR, Gstat and ExaGeoStatR, to explore the internal structure of the proposed benchmarking suite using small-size datasets. Medium-size and large-size modeling/kriging tools are also evaluated to show the capabilities of the proposed benchmarking suite. This is joint work with Sameh Abdulah, Kesen Wang, Ying Sun, Hatem Ltaief, David E. Keyes, Marc G. Genton, all six from KAUST.
- Optimal control for some quasilinear singular elliptic systems
This talk is concerned with singular systems governed by elliptic operators. We first study the existence and uniqueness of the solution for the scalar case. Secondly, we discuss the (2x2) quasi-linear elliptic systems, then we study the optimal control for these systems.
- Some differential identities on rings and algebras
The purpose of this talk is to find an extension of the renowned Chernoff theorem [J. Funct. Anal., 2 (1973)] on standard operator algebra. In fact, we prove the following result: Let H be a real (or complex) Banach space and L(H) be the algebra of bounded linear operators on H. Let A(H) ⊂ L(H) be a standard operator algebra. Suppose that D: A(H) → L(H) is a linear mapping satisfying the relation D(AnBn) = D(An)Bn + AnD(Bn) for all A, B ∈ A(H). Then D is a linear derivation on A(H). In particular, D is continuous. Moreover, we discuss similar kind of identities on generalized left derivations on rings and furnish an application in context with Banach algebra.
- Moore-Penrose inverse of the signless Laplacians of bipartite graphs
We provide a relation between the Moore-Penrose inverse of the Laplacian and signless Laplacian matrices of a bipartite graph. As a consequence, we present combinatorial formulae for the Moore-Penrose inverse of signless Laplacians of bipartite graphs. We also obtain a combinatorial formula for the Moore-Penrose inverse of an incidence matrix and derive a combinatorial formula for the inverse of signless Laplacians of non-bipartite graphs. These results answer some of the open problems raised in [R. Hessert, S. Mallik, Moore-Penrose inverses of the signless Laplacian and edge-Laplacian of graphs, Discrete Math. 344 (2021) #112451]. This is joint work with Abdullah Alazemi and Osama Alhalabi, both from Kuwait University.
- Existence results for coupled nonlinear sequential fractional differential equations with coupled Riemann-Stieltjes integro-multipoint boundary conditions
This talk is concerned with the existence of solutions for a fully coupled Riemann-Stieltjes integro-multipoint boundary value problem of Caputo type sequential fractional differential equations. The given system is studied with the aid of Leray-Schauder alternative and contraction mapping principle. A numerical example illustrating the abstract results is also presented.
- Linear algebra applications in modern world
This talk demonstrates the use of linear algebra concepts in real-life obligations by presenting linear algebra applications that have waiting to be uncovered or fully explored by mathematicians.
- On Rickart-like theorem for non-bijective mappings
Rickart  in 1948 proved that every bijective multiplicative mapping of a Boolean ring onto an arbitrary ring is additive. Al Subaiei and Jarboui in  have studied the analogous of Rickart for non-bijective mappings. They proved that a multiplicative map φ: R → S, where R is a Boolean ring with identity and S is a ring its characteristic is 2, such that φ(x) + φ(1R - x) = φ(qR) for any x ∈ R is additive. The results of this work will be presented in this talk.

- Numerical studies of the Steklov eigenvalue problem via conformal mappings
A spectral method based on conformal mappings is proposed to solve Steklov eigenvalue problems and their related shape optimization problems in two dimensions. To apply spectral methods, we _rst reformulate the Steklov eigenvalue problem in the complex domain via conformal mappings. The eigenfunctions are expanded in Fourier series so the discretization leads to an eigenvalue problem for coefficients of Fourier series. For shape optimization problem, we use the gradient ascent approach to find the optimal domain which maximizes k-th Steklov eigenvalue with a fixed area for a given k. The coefficients of Fourier series of mapping functions from a unit circle to optimal domains are obtained for several different k. This is joint work with Chiu-Yen Kao from Claremont McKenna College, USA
Approximation of special monogenic functions by equivalent bases of polynomials in Fréchet modules
Intensive research efforts have been dedicated to the extension and development of important aspects of, and has resulted in, the theory of one complex variable to higher dimensional spaces. Indeed, Clifford analysis was created several decades ago to provide an elegant and powerful generalization of complex analysis. This talk introduces a new derived base of special monogenic polynomials (SMPs) in Fréchet Cliffordian modules, named the equivalent base. We examine the convergence properties of such a base for several cases according to certain conditions applied on the bases of its related constituent bases. Subsequently, we characterize its effectiveness in various convergence regions such as closed balls, open balls, at the origin, and for all entire special monogenic functions (SMFs). Moreover, the upper and lower bounds of the order of the equivalent base are determined, and proved to be attainable. We eventually discuss the Τp- property of the equivalent base.
- Long time stability of the implicit Euler scheme for an incompressible two-phase flow model
In this talk, we present results on the stability for all positive time of the fully implicit Euler scheme for an incompressible two-phase ow model. More precisely, we consider the time discretisation scheme and with the aid of the discrete Gronwall lemma and of the discrete uniform Gronwall lemma we prove that the numerical scheme is stable. This is joint work with T. Tachim Medjo from FIU, USA.
