Call to Action to the Tech Community on New Machine Readable COVID- 19

Dataset



AI experts called to develop new text and data mining techniques that

can help the science community answer high-priority scientific

questions related to COVID-19. The dataset represents the most

extensive machine- readable Coronavirus literature collection

available for data and text mining to date, with over 29,000 articles,

and more than 13,000 of which have full text

Subject: Lightning Laplace and conformal mapping codes


I am happy to announce the availability of Matlab codes LAPLACE and

CONFMAP to solve Laplace Dirichlet problems and compute conformal maps

in polygons, circular polygons, and other simply-connected planar

domains. These codes make use of the "lightning Laplace" algorithm,

involving rational functions with poles exponentially clustered near

corner singularities. Typical problems are solved to 6-10 digits of

accuracy all the way up to the corners in less than a second on a

laptop, with subsequent function evaluations requiring microseconds

per point.



Details can be found at

https://people.maths.ox.ac.uk/trefethen/lightning.html, which shows

example plots produced by executing laplace('L') and confmap('iso').



CONFMAP requires Chebfun in the Matlab path (because it uses AAA

rational approximations), but LAPLACE does not.

From: Tim Phillips PhillipsTN@cf.ac.uk
Date: March 27, 2020
Subject: PhD Position, Cardiff Univ


EPSRC DTP studentship in Least Squares PGD Mimetic Spectral

Element Methods for Systems of First-Order PDEs



Many mathematical models that describe problems in science and

engineering are defined in high dimensional spaces. The mathematical

description of these problems is invariably in terms of a system of

partial differential equations (PDEs). For practical problems these

systems do not possess analytical solutions and therefore it is

necessary to solve them numerically. It is important that the system

of algebraic equations obtained as a result of discretisation is a

compatible (mimetic) and physically consistent system so that the

numerical approximation is an accurate representation of the physical

solution to the problem. The governing systems of PDEs is written in

terms of an equivalent system of first-order differential equations

which is subsequently formulated in terms of a least squares

functional. The exceptional stability of least-squares formulations

has led to the widespread use of low-order finite elements in their

discretization. Unfortunately, these methods are only approximately

conservative, which generally leads to violation of fundamental

physical properties, such as loss of mass conservation. In many cases

this drawback can outweigh the potential advantages of least squares

methods. As a result, improving the conservation properties of

least-squares methods is crucially important.
