Determination of convection terms and quasilinearities appearing in diffusion equations
(201812)We consider the highly nonlinear and ill posed inverse problem of determining some general expression appearing in the a diffusion equation from measurements of solutions on the lateral boundary. We consider both linear ... 
Diagonalizing quadratic bosonic operators by nonautonomous flow equations volker bach
(Memoirs of the American Mathematical Society, 20160101)We study a nonautonomous, nonlinear evolution equation on the space of operators on a complex Hilbert space. We specify assumptions that ensure the global existence of its solutions and allow us to derive its asymptotics ... 
Dicentric dose estimates for patients undergoing radiotherapy in the RTGene study to assess blood dosimetric models and the new Bayesian method for gradient exposure
(20180601)The RTGene study was focused on the development and validation of new transcriptional biomarkers for prediction of individual radiotherapy (RT) patient responses to ionising radiation (IR). In parallel, for validation ... 
Dimension reduction for the micromagnetic energy functional on curved thin films
(20161214)Micromagnetic con gurations of the vortex and onion type have beenwidely studied in the context of planar structures. Recently a signi cant interest to micromagnetic curved thin lms has appeared. In particular, thin ... 
Dimensionally adaptive hpfinite element simulation and inversion of 2D magnetotelluric measurements
(Journal of Computational Science, 20160901)Magnetotelluric (MT) problems often contain different subdomains where the conductivity of the media depends upon one, two, or three spatial variables. Traditionally, when a MT problem incorporates a threedimensional (3D) ... 
A direct algorithm in some free boundary problems

In particular, we focus on floating structures and rotating turbines. This work is an ... 
Direct solvers performance on hadapted grids
(Computers and Mathematics with Applications, 20151231)We analyse the performance of direct solvers when applied to a system of linear equations arising from an $h$adapted, $C^0$ finite element space. Theoretical estimates are derived for typical $h$refinement patterns arising ... 
Discontinuous highorder finitevolume/finiteelement method for inviscid compressible flows
