Nature-inspired metaheuristic methods, like the particle swarm optimization and many others, enjoy fast convergence towards optimal solutions via a series of inter-particle communications. Such methods are common for the optimization problem in engineering, but there are few for statistics problems... read more

Conservative discretizations are numerical methods which preserve conservation laws of differential equations at the discrete level. Recently, the multiplier method was proposed as a conservative discretization for general ODEs and PDEs. In contrast to symplectic or variational methods, the... read more

Although in a strict sense the classic Stefan problem involves tracking the movement of the water/ice interface during melting its mathematical formalization can be generalized to a wide number of systems. One emerging application is in the study of the growth of geomorphic landscape features, e.g... read more
