2017 Geodynamic modeling with staggered finite differences and marker in cell: theory, teaching and examples
04 Feb 2021 | Contributor(s):: Taras Gerya
Numerical modeling of geodynamic processes is an essential approach in both science and industry with ever- growing demand and high efficiency/cost ratio. Current trend in geodynamic modeling is to develop universal approaches with potentially unlimited number of applications. One simple...
2017 Introduction to the spectral-infinite-element method
04 Feb 2021 | Contributor(s):: Hom Nath Gharti, Jeroen Tromp
The governing equations for the elastic-gravitational deformation of an Earth model involve a perturbed gravitational potential. The gravitational potential is governed by Poisson’s equation inside the Earth and by Laplace’s equation in the rest of space. The infinite domain...
