In the last ten years radial basis functions (RBFs) have become a powerful tool for the numerical solution of convective PDEs. Weights for derivative approximation can be easily generated on scattered nodes in any number of dimensions, and time-dependent problems can be accurately solved using a method-of-lines approach.

In this talk, a local RBF-based method will be introduced and tested on some standard problems from mesoscale atmospheric modeling.

For accommodations based on disability, or more details, please call 325-6561. All visitors without NOAA or University of Oklahoma identification must register at the registration desk on arrival. Visitor parking is available for all University visitors. However, faculty/staff/students must have a current multi-purpose parking permit. Additional parking is available at the Lloyd Noble Center (LNC) for those individuals who do not have a parking permit. You do not need a permit to park in one of 1,200 spaces reserved for CART bus riders, although you must ride the CART shuttle to park in the reserved area. This area is on the north central side of the Lloyd Noble Center. Elsewhere at the LNC, permits are required.

The University of Oklahoma is a smoke-free / tobacco-free campus.
