ExplicitinTime Variational Formulations for GoalOriented Adaptivity
(201910)GoalOriented Adaptivity (GOA) is a powerful tool to accurately approximate physically relevant features of the solution of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). It delivers optimal grids to solve challenging engineering ... 
Variational Formulations for Explicit RungeKutta Methods
(Finite Elements in Analysis and Design, 201908)Variational spacetime formulations for partial di fferential equations have been of great interest in the last decades, among other things, because they allow to develop meshadaptive algorithms. Since it is known ... 
Using Covariance Matrix Adaptation Evolutionary Strategy to boost the search accuracy in hierarchic memetic computations
(Journal of Computational Science, 201904)Many global optimization problems arising naturally in science and engineering exhibit some form of intrinsic illposedness, such as multimodality and insensitivity. Severe illposedness precludes the use of standard ...

ForwardinTime GoalOriented Adaptivity
(International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering, 201903)In goaloriented adaptive algorithms for partial differential equations, we adapt the finite element mesh in order to reduce the error of the solution in some quantity of interest. In timedependent problems, this adaptive ... 
Accessibility for LineCutting in Freeform Surfaces
(ComputerAided Design, 20190426)Manufacturing techniques such as hotwire cutting, wireEDM, wiresaw cutting, and flank CNC machining all belong to a class of processes called linecutting where the cutting tool moves tangentially along the reference ... 
Adjointbased formulation for computing derivatives with respect to bed boundary positions in resistivity geophysics
(Computational Geosciences, 201902)In inverse geophysical resistivity problems, it is common to optimize for specific resistivity values and bed boundary positions, as needed, for example, in geosteering applications. When using gradientbased inversion ... 
Parallel refined Isogeometric Analysis in 3D
(IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, 201811)We study threedimensional isogeometric analysis (IGA) and the solution of the resulting system of linear equations via a direct solver. IGA uses highly continuous $C^{p1}$ basis functions, which provide multiple benefits ... 
Asymptotic Models for the Electric Potential across a Highly Conductive Casing
(Computers and Mathematics with Applications, 201807)We analyze a configuration that involves a steelcased borehole, where the casing that covers the borehole is considered as a highly conductive thin layer. We develop an asymptotic method for deriving reduced problems ... 
On initialization of milling paths for 5axis flank CNC machining of freeform surfaces with general milling tools
