Speaker: Enrique Thomann


The Lagrangian Averaged Navier-Stokes (LANS-alpha) equations have been introduced for numerical purposes to approximate the Navier–Stokes equations at low Reynolds numbers.
Branching processes can be used to obtain a representation of solutions to these equations. The advantage of this representation is that the solutions are obtained as a multiplicative functional (which does not depend on the smoothing parameter alpha) and are defined in a common probability space.
Utilizing this representation, rates of convergence are obtained in a mixed spatio/temporal norm. The results presented in this talk represent work done in collaboration with Larry Chen, Ron Guenther, Ed Waymire from Oregon State University and Sun-Chul Kim from Chung Ang University.
