Computer simulations: fast algorithms
Computer simulations provide powerful means of solving various problems in science and engineering. Computational mechanics is one of such approaches which, along with theoretical and experimental mechanics, investigates mechanical phenomena efficiently. This division develops various approaches of the Boundary Integral Equation Method (BIEM), which is one of major techniques of computational mechanics and is considered suitable for the analyses of phenomena such as waves, fracture, etc. We are currently interested in fast BIEMs and their applications to large scale problems.
