Title: Annual Copper Mountain Conferences on Multigrid and Iterative Methods, Copper Mountain, Colorado

Abstract

This project supported the Copper Mountain Conference on Multigrid and Iterative Methods, held from 2007 to 2015, at Copper Mountain, Colorado. The subject of the Copper Mountain Conference Series alternated between Multigrid Methods in odd-numbered years and Iterative Methods in even-numbered years. Begun in 1983, the Series represents an important forum for the exchange of ideas in these two closely related fields. This report describes the Copper Mountain Conference on Multigrid and Iterative Methods, 2007-2015. Information on the conference series is available at http://grandmaster.colorado.edu/~copper/.

  • This is the report of the Workshop on New Research Opportunities in Superconductivity held at Copper Mountain, Colorado on August 19-20,1991. The workshop is a follow-up to two previous meetings to evaluate progress in superconductivity. The first, held at Copper Mountain, Colorado in 1983, focuses on low-temperature superconductors (LTS), while the second-in 1988 examined the progress of low-temperature materials and the potential of the then recently-discovered high-temperature superconductors (HTS). The summaries of these two superconductivity workshops were published in Cryogenics (July 1984, p.378; and November 1988, p.711). This workshop was the first in this series to concentrate largely on high-temperaturemore » superconductors. Its objectives were to identify the barriers limiting progress in high-temperature materials and to assess research areas that are ripe for important advances. The workshop was organized in four sessions, with Robert C.Dynes and Victor J. Emery leading the session on Fundamentals, Charles M. Falco and Donald U. Gubser leading the session on Materials, David K. Christen and Harry Kroger leading the session on Thin Films and Devices, and Sungho Jin and David T. Shaw leading the session on Bulk Materials and Large-Scale Applications. The organizational committee for the workshop consisted of David K. Christen, Alan F. Clark, Robert C. Dynes, Donald H. Liebenberg, David L. Nelson, and David T. Shaw (chair).« less
  • Multigrid (MG) methods in computational fluid dynamics and their implementation on supercomputers are discussed in reviews and reports of recent investigations. Topics examined include the use of incomplete matrix factorizations as MG smoothers for vector and parallel computers, an algebraic MG theory for symmetric cases, MG calculation of subvortices, a vectorized MG solver for the three-dimensional Poisson equation, and the numerical solution of the nonlinear stochastic Helmholtz equation with an MG preconditioner. Consideration is given to the application of data-flow concepts to an MG Euler solver, parallel computation of Euler and Navier-Stokes flows, and spectral MG methods for time-dependent Navier-Stokesmore » equations.« less
  • Multigrid (MG) computational methods and their applications are examined in reviews and reports of recent investigations. Topics discussed include MG acceleration of a two-dimensional full potential flow solver, fast pseudoinverse algorithms on hypercubes, MG methods for fermion computations in QCD, design and implementation of parallel MG algorithms, and MG Euler solvers. Consideration is given to Fourier estimates for MG methods in three-dimensional elasticity, MG methods for the NASA/Princeton Navier-Stokes Computer, the simple pressure-correction method as a nonlinear smoother, and a cell-centered MG for interface problems.
  • Recent advances in multigrid methods (MGMs) for the numerical solution of fluid-dynamics problems are discussed in reviews and reports. Topics addressed include MGMs for nonconforming finite elements, a parallel MGM algorithm, an MGM-like semiiterative algorithm for the massively parallel solution of large-scale finite-element systems, multilevel convergence acceleration for viscous and turbulent transonic flows computed with a cell-vertex method, and domain-reduction methods. Consideration is given to MGMs for first-order systems, MGMs for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations, an MGM-based solution technique for incompressible flow, a parallel MGM for data-driven multiprocessor systems, MGMs for the Euler equations, parallel MGM algorithms and computer visionmore » applications, and a comparison of Crank-Nicolson and waveform-relaxation MGMs on a hypercube computer.« less
  • The 1992 Groundwater Monitoring Program (GMP) was established as a one-year transitional program to bridge the gap between the historical Comprehensive Monitoring Program (CMP) and future pre-Record of Decision (ROD) baseline and post-ROD monitoring programs at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA). Groundwater data collected during the 1992 GMP were obtained to (1) evaluate changes in the extent of contaminant distribution in the Basin F Interim Response Action (IRA) area, (2) monitor the effectiveness of interim remedial actions, and (3) meet regulatory needs.
