Shrestha, S. (author), Dekker, J. (author), Gerritsma, M.I. (author), Hulshoff, S.J. (author), Akkerman, I. (author)In this paper, we build on the work of Hughes and Sangalli (2007) dealing with the explicit computation of the FineScale Greens’ function. The original approach chooses a set of functionals associated with a projector to compute the FineScale Greens’ function. The construction of these functionals, however, does not generalise to arbitrary...journal article 2024

Verduyn, Thomas (author)The need of computational power for engineering applications has been ever increasing and with classical computers approaching their physical limits, new ways of improvement have to be investigated. One of the promising solutions is quantum computing. Most engineering problems require solving a system of linear equations of higher dimensions and...master thesis 2022

Cheng, D. (author)This dissertation collects three scientific contributions, already published in international peerreviewed journals, plus some extra considerations and workinprogress. First, we present a model based on reinforced urn processes, which conjugates to the rightcensored recovery process, and empirically apply it to the time series of recovery...doctoral thesis 2022

Kakkar, Samarth (author)The main objective of this thesis was to explore the capabilities of neural networks in terms of representing governing differential equations, primarily in the purview of fluid/aero dynamic flows. The governing differential equations were accommodated within the loss functions for training the neural networks, thereby making them 'physics...master thesis 2022

Hajer, Wouter (author)Over the past century various different discrepancies in the expected and observed behaviour of galaxies and galaxy clusters were found. Together this is called the missing mass problem and the most well known theory trying to explain these differences states that there is additional undetectable mass in the form of dark matter. Modified...bachelor thesis 2022

Cappanera, Enrico (author)This research investigates the possibility of solving one dimensional Poisson's equation on quantum computers using the Variational Quantum Linear Solver (VQLS) as a simplified test case for fluid dynamics applications. In this work, Poisson's equation is discretized with the finite element method and the resulting matrix is decomposed as a...master thesis 2021

Koorevaar, Loek (author)A model is designed for solving gravitational profiles of selfgravitating and rotating planets via the use of Poisson's equation for total gravity, i.e., the sum of the gravitational and rotational potential. Poisson's equation is a partial differential equation that is solved with the usage of Green's functions. This is a major advantage...bachelor thesis 2020

Cheng, D. (author), Liu, Z. (author)This paper presents our winning entry for the EVA 2019 data competition, the aim of which is to predict Red Sea surface temperature extremes over space and time. To achieve this, we used a stochastic partial differential equation (Poisson equation) based method, improved through a regularization to penalize large magnitudes of solutions. This...journal article 2020

Patil, Kaustubh (author)In experimental aerodynamics, pressure is an important parameter which provides insight into the various features of the flow around the test object. By obtaining the surface pressure information, various inferences can be drawn such as flow separation, local flow velocity etc. Traditionally, the most common method of obtaining pressure has been...master thesis 2019

Benedysiuk, Piotr (author)The electrostatics has effect on conductance of nanowire devices. In this model electrostatics are described by nonlinear coupling of the Poisson and the Schr¨odinger equations. In presence of magnetic and electric field and spinorbit interaction, conductance develops a feature called the helical gap. This gap is characterised by a drop of...bachelor thesis 2019

Cook, B.J. (author), Kruit, P. (author)Photofield emitters show great potential for many single electron pulsed applications. However, for the brightest pulses > 10 11 A / (m 2 sr V), our simulations show that Poisson statistics and stochastic Coulomb interactions limit the brightness and increase the energy spread even with an average of a single electron per pulse. For the...journal article 2016

Zwanenburg, F.A. (author), Van Loon, A.A. (author), Steele, G.A. (author), Rijmenam, C.E.W.M. (author), Balder, T. (author), Fang, Y. (author), Lieber, C.M. (author), Kouwenhoven, L.P. (author)We report the realization of extremely small single quantum dots in ptype silicon nanowires, defined by Schottky tunnel barriers with Ni and NiSi contacts. Despite their ultrasmall size the NiSi–Si–NiSi nanowire quantum dots readily allow spectroscopy of at least ten consecutive holes, and additionally they display a pronounced excitedstate...journal article 2009

Tang, J.M. (author)The Preconditioned Conjugate Gradient (PCG) method is one of the most popular iterative methods for solving large linear systems with a symmetric and positive semidefinite coefficient matrix. However, if the preconditioned coefficient matrix is illconditioned, the convergence of the PCG method typically deteriorates. Instead, a twolevel PCG...doctoral thesis 2008

Tang, J.M. (author), Vuik, C. (author)Simulating bubbly flows is a very popular topic in CFD. These bubbly flows are governed by the NavierStokes equations. In many popular operator splitting formulations for these equations, solving the linear system coming from the discontinuous diffusion equation takes the most computational time, despite of its elliptic origins. Sometimes these...conference paper 2006

Prinsen, P. (author), Odijk, T. (author)We investigate theoretically the fluidcrystal coexistence of solutions of globular charged nanoparticles such as proteins and inorganic colloids. The thermodynamic properties of the fluid phase are computed via the optimized Baxter model P. Prinsen and T. Odijk [J. Chem. Phys. 121, 6525 (2004)]. This is done specifically for lysozyme and...journal article 2006

Tang, J.M. (author), Vuik, C. (author)For various applications, it is wellknown that deflated ICCG is an efficient method for solving linear systems with invertible and singular coefficient matrix. This deflated ICCG with subdomain deflation vectors is used by us to solve linear systems with singular coefficient matrix, arising from a discretization of the Poisson equation with...report 2006

Tang, J.M., (author), Vuik, C. (author)In this report we give new insights into the properties of invertible and singular deflated and preconditioned linear systems where the coefficient matrices are also symmetric and positive (semi) definite. First we prove that the invertible de ated matrix has always a more favorable effeective condition number compared to the original matrix....report 2005

Zhang, L.X. (author), Leburton, J.P. (author), Hanson, R. (author), Kouwenhoven, L.P. (author)We show that the design of a quantum point contact adjacent to a quantum dot can be optimized to produce maximum sensitivity to singleelectron charging in the quantum dot. Our analysis is based on the selfconsistent solution of coupled threedimensional KohnSham and Poisson equations for the quantum circuit. We predict a detection sensitivity...journal article 2004

Kenjere, S. (author), Hanjali?, K. (author), Bal, D. (author)A magnetic field, imposed on turbulent flow of an electrically conductive fluid, is known to cause preferential damping of the velocity and its fluctuations in the direction of Lorentz force, thus leading to an increase in stress anisotropy. Based on direct numerical simulations (DNS), we have developed a model of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD)...journal article 2004
