Ivan C. Christov
Research Interests:
a) Complex and Nonlinear Systems: the study of the mechanics of natural phenomena using advanced mathematical techniques and stateoftheart computational simulations; in particular: diffusion, mixing and selforganization of granular matter, flow in heterogeneous porous media, multiphase interfacial instabilities, fluidstructure interaction, shockformation in compressible flows, viscoelastic flows and nonNewtonian rheology, dynamics of coherent structures in nonlinear wave equations, nonlinear Fourier analysis of physical data.
b) Numerical Methods/Analysis: the development of highperformance reliable simulation techniques for realworld applications; in particular: Godunovtype schemes for conservation laws and Hamiltonâ€“Jacobi equations, finitevolume methods for reservoir simulation, implicit conservative finitedifference and finite element methods for nonlinear diffusion and nonlinear wave equations.
Just for Fun (Scientometrics, etc.):
