CASUS Institute Seminar, Maciej Matyka, PhD, University of Wroclaw Department of Physics and Astronomy, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Poland

Maciej received his PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Wroclaw, followed by a postdoctoral position at the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen. He then pursued his work at the University of Wroclaw in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Maciej is interested in computational physics, fluid dynamics, and complex systems.

Abstract of the talk// In the talk Maciej will present the origin and basics of the simplified Lattice Boltzmann method for solving Navier-Stokes equations in complex systems. He will show how to abandon distribution functions by assuming unit relaxation time. The complete method will be presented in algorithmic form together with its results in benchmark cases as well as in porous media flows. Maciej will also present some recent results on the ongoing work on using MLBM – meshless formulation of LBM as well as deep analysis of optimization properties of the method.

Maciej will be talking live in Görlitz. However, as the event is organized in a hybrid format that includes a videoconferencing tool by Zoom Inc., people interested in the topic have the chance to also join the talk remotely. Please ask for the login details via
