Modellierung und numerische Simulation der Thermoregulation von Früh- und Neugeborenen

(Universität Kassel, FB 17, Mathematik/Informatik, 2005)

Bei frühgeborenen Säuglingen spielt die Thermoregulation zur Aufrechterhaltung einer überlebenswichtigen Körpertemperatur durch Wärmeproduktion, -abgabe bzw. -aufnahme eine entscheidende Rolle. Der Einsatz moderner Inkubatoren soll die körpereigenen Thermoregulatoren unterstützen, und es ist im Hinblick auf verschiedene medizinische Fragestellungen wünschenswert, diesen Prozess modellieren zu können. Wir stellen ein einfaches Modell auf der Basis von partiellen Differentialgleichungen vor und beschreiben detailliert ...

Asymptotics of number fields and the Cohen-Lenstra heuristics

(Universität Kassel, FB 17, Mathematik/Informatik, 2005)

We study the asymptotics conjecture of Malle for dihedral groups Dl of order 2l, where l is an odd prime. We prove the expected lower bound for those groups. For the upper bounds we show that there is a connection to class groups of quadratic number fields. The asymptotic behavior of those class groups is predicted by the Cohen-Lenstra heuristics. Under the assumption of this heuristic we are able to prove the expected upper bounds.

Error estimates for approximate approximations on compact intervals

(2005)

The aim of this paper is the investigation of the error which results from the
method of approximate approximations applied to functions defined on compact in-
tervals, only. This method, which is based on an approximate partition of unity, was introduced by V. Mazya in 1991 and has mainly been used for functions defied on the whole space up to now. For the treatment of differential equations and boundary integral equations, however, an efficient approximation procedure on compact intervals is needed.

A generic formula for the values at the boundary points of monic classical orthogonal polynomials

(2005)

In a previous paper we have determined a generic formula for the polynomial solution families of the well-known differential equation of hypergeometric type σ(x)y"n(x)+τ(x)y'n(x)-λnyn(x)=0. In this paper, we give another such formula which enables us to present a generic formula for the values of monic classical orthogonal polynomials at their boundary points of definition.

Negative Größen bei Diophant?

(Universität Kassel, FB 17, Mathematik/Informatik, 2005)

In this paper we champion Diophantus of Alexandria and Isabella Basmakova against Norbert Schappacher. In two publications ([46] and [47]) he puts forward inter alia two propositions: Questioning Diophantus' originality he considers affirmatively the possibility, that the Arithmetica are the joint work of a team of authors like Bourbaki. And he calls Basmakova's claim (in [5]), that Diophantus uses negative numbers, a "nonsense", reproaching her for her "thoughtlessness". First, we disprove Schappacher's Bourbaki ...

Preconditioner updates applied to CFD model problems

(2007)

In the present paper we concentrate on solving sequences of nonsymmetric linear systems with block structure arising from compressible flow problems. We attempt to improve the solution process by sharing part of the computational effort throughout the sequence. This is achieved by application of a cheap updating technique for preconditioners which we adapted in order to be used for our applications. Tested on three benchmark compressible flow problems, the strategy speeds up the entire computation with an acceleration ...

Numerical simulation of tunnel fires using preconditioned finite volume schemes

(2006)

This article is concerned with the numerical simulation of flows at low Mach numbers which are subject to the gravitational force and strong heat sources. As a specific example for such flows, a fire event in a car tunnel will be considered in detail. The low Mach flow is treated with a preconditioning technique allowing the computation of unsteady flows, while the source terms for gravitation and heat are incorporated via operator splitting. It is shown that a first order discretization in space is not able to compute ...

The Navier-Stokes Equations with Particle Methods

(2007)

The non-stationary nonlinear Navier-Stokes equations describe the motion of a viscous incompressible fluid flow for 0<t≤T in some bounded three-dimensional domain.
Up to now it is not known wether these equations are well-posed or not. Therefore we use a particle method to develop a system of approximate equations. We show that this system can be solved uniquely and globally in time and that its solution has a high degree of spatial regularity. Moreover we prove that the system of approximate solutions has an ...

Lagrangian approximations and weak solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations

(2007)

The motion of a viscous incompressible fluid flow in bounded domains with a smooth boundary can be described by the nonlinear Navier-Stokes equations. This description corresponds to the so-called Eulerian approach. We develop a new approximation method for the Navier-Stokes equations in both the stationary and the non-stationary case by a suitable coupling of the Eulerian and the Lagrangian representation of the flow, where the latter is defined by the trajectories of the particles of the fluid. The method leads to ...
