The Department of Mathematics, MRU organized an International Webinar on Numerical Explosive Combustion Models: Multiplicity and Simulations. Prof Yufeng Xu from Central South University, China enlightened the audience as the Guest Speaker for the day.
His main interests are fractional calculus & its applications, numerical methods for PDEs, mathematical models from the combustion process. He is currently a member of the editorial board of journal ‘Abstract and Applied Analysis’ and has published more than 50 papers in reputed International journals.
The webinar was attended by Professor Yufeng Xu – China; Prof.(Dr.) Om Aggarwal – Professor Emeritus, Southern Illinois University, USA; Professor Rajesh Kumar Pandey – IIT BHU; Dr. Deepa Arora, Dr. Aparna Vyas, Dr. Kamlesh along with other faculty members & 85+ participants.
Prof Yufeng Xu briefly explained the mathematical models from the combustion process. For time-dependent problems, he explained the blowup phenomenon and its critical conditions. He mainly focused on the steady-state problem (Gelfand equation) and introduced some fractional combustion models. He explained careful analysis for a one-dimensional case and obtained a bifurcation curve, which plays an important role in designing effective iterative methods.
Webinar ended with an interactive Question and Answer session.
