Research interests

Inverse problems

Whilst direct formulations consist of determining the effect of a given cause, in inverse formulations the situation is completely, or partially reversed. The interest is into the research of inverse problems for partial differential equations governing phenomena in fluid flow, elasticity, acoustics, heat transfer, mechanics of aerosols, etc. Typical practical applications relate to flows in porous media, heat conduction in materials, thermal barrier coatings, heat exchangers, corrosion, etc. The objectives are to investigate the existence, uniqueness and stability of the solution to the problem that mathematically models a physical phenomenon under investigation, and to develop new convergent, stable and robust algorithms for obtaining the desired solution. The analyses concern inverse boundary value problems, inverse initial value problems, parameter identification, inverse geometry and source determination problems.

Boundary element methods

The Boundary Element Method (BEM) is attractive mainly due to the possibility of reducing the dimensionality of a boundary value problem described by linear partial differential equations. To be successful in the reduction of dimensionality it is needed to have the fundamental solution of the original partial differential equations available in an analytical or simple form. If this is not the case then of much interest is the development and computational implementation of recent BEMs such as the dual reciprocity, multiple reciprocity, analogous element, contour point, fundamental solutions and meshless methods for solving both direct and inverse problems of mathematical physics.
