(2018-06-22)Isogeometric analysis (IGA) is a computational approach frequently employed nowadays to study problems governed by partial differential equations (PDEs). This approach defines the geometry using conventional computer-aided ...
(2016-01-29)Nanoparticles, small units of matter with dimensions in the range 1-100 nm, exhibit many advantageous size-dependent magnetic, electrical, chemical and optical prop- erties, which are not observed at the microscale or ...
On the Analysis of Trajectory-Based Search Algorithms: When is it Beneficial to Reject Improvements? (Algorithmica, 2018)We investigate popular trajectory-based algorithms inspired by biology and physics to answer a question of general significance: when is it beneficial to reject improvements? A distinguishing factor of SSWM (Strong Selection ...
(Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, 2018-10)We introduce a new approach to numerical quadrature on geometries defined by subdivision surfaces based on quad meshes in the context of isogeometric analysis. Starting with a sparse control mesh, the subdivision process ...
