Staggered Discontinuous Galerkin Methods

Dr. Eric T. Chung, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shatin, Hong Kong

In this talk, we will present the staggered discontinuous Galerkin methods. These methods are based on piecewise polynomial approximation on staggered grids. The basis functions have to be carefully designed, so that some compatibility conditions are satisfied. Moreover, the use of staggered grids bring some advantages, such as optimal convergence and conservation. We will discuss the basic methodologies and applications to wave propagation and fluid flows.
