Project description

"The vexing problem of obtaining compact computational representations of complex transport-dominated phenomena occurs in diverse domains ranging from the control of turbulent reacting flows in jet turbines to the prediction of nutrient concentrations that may trigger toxic algal blooms in coastal estuaries. This rather generally posed problem is the main initial focus of this project and its main initial activity will be an inaugural workshop, "Model Reduction for Transport-dominated Phenomena", to be held in Spring 2015, that will gather an international group of experts from the main contributing disciplines: systems modeling, hydrodynamics, computational control, and model reduction, with the goal of "cross-pollination" of ideas and exchange of perspectives among the group together with their accumulated intuition and experience."
