Lagrangian Front Tracking and Applications to Conservation Law, Fluid Mixing, and Phase Transition Problems

Speaker: Xiaolin Li (Stony Brook University)

In this talk, I will review the history of the Lagrangian front tracking method and the computational platform built on this methodology. I will review the front tracking in the study of fluid interface instabilities, including Rayleigh-Taylor instability, Richtmyer Meshkov instability and fluid mixing induced by these instabilities. I will also introduce a fully conservative front tracking scheme and its application in the phase transition problem.
