On the merits of sparse surrogates for global sensitivity analysis of multi-scale nonlinear problems: Application to turbulence and fire-spotting model in wildland fire simulators
(Communications in Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulation, 2019-02)
Many nonlinear phenomena, whose numerical simulation is not straightforward, depend on a set of parameters in a way which is not easy to predict beforehand. Wildland fires in presence of strong winds fall into this category, ...
Surrogate-based uncertainty and sensitivity analysis for bacterial invasion in multi-species biofilm modeling
(Communications Nonlinear Sciences and Numerical Simulation, 2019)
In this work, we present a probabilistic analysis of a detailed one-dimensional biofilm model that explicitly accounts for planktonic bacterial invasion in a multi-species biofilm. The objective is (1) to quantify and ...
Front Propagation in Random Media
This PhD thesis deals with the problem of the propagation of fronts under random circumstances. A statistical model to represent the motion of fronts when are evolving in a media characterized by microscopical randomness ...
The role of the environment in front propagation
(Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Computational and Mathematical Methods in Science and Engineering, CMMSE 2018 July 9–14, 2018, 2018-07-09)
In this work we study the role of a complex environment in the propagation of a front with curvature-dependent speed. The motion of the front is split into a drifting part and a fluctuating part. The drifting part is ...
