Time-averaged coarse variables for multiscale dynamics

(to appear in Quarterly of Applied Mathematics)

by Marshall Slemrod and Amit Acharya

Given an autonomous system of Ordinary Diff erential Equations without an a priori split into slow and fast components, we defi ne a strategy for producing a large class of `slow' variables (constants of fast motion) in a precise sense. The equation of evolution of any such slow variable is deduced. The strategy is to rewrite our system on an in finite dimensional "history" Hilbert space X and defi ne our coarse observation as a functional on X.

Postdoctoral postion in multiscale computational mechanics at RPI

There is an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research position in the Advanced Computational Research Laboratory at RPI, Troy NY to work on Multiscale Computational Mechanics. Encouraged to apply are creative, self-motivated candidates with a sound background in computational mechanics. RPI is home to the CCNI, one of the most powerful university-based super-computational research facilities in the world.
