Organized by:Department of Mathematics


In this talk, we will present the Stokes Darcy interface problem as a modeling tool matrix-conduit underground water systems. The partial differential equations together with the interface conditions governing the water system will be derived, followed by well-posedness analysis and numerical solutions through finite element method and domain decomposition method.
