Title: Fixed Grid Methods for Problems with (Moving) Interfaces
Abstract: In this talk, we will present some recent work for solving problems with (moving) interfaces on a fixed grid. We will discuss mainly the immersed boundary method for computing the motion of interfaces under the influence of (fixed or mobile) surface agent. If time permits, a newly developed immersed boundary method for diffusion through permeable interfaces will also be discussed.
