Hydrodynamic interaction among particles in Stokes flow

To understand dispersed systems like suspensions, the particle-particle interaction through the surrounding fluid is the building block. In late 80's, a computational method called Stokesian Dynamics was developed. However, the computational load is so heavy that we can only calculate small systems. In this talk, I will present improvements of the Stokesian Dynamics in two aspects -- accuracy and speed by applying the fast multipole method (FMM). The formulation and implimentation are straightfoward, and the application for other fields such as vorticies and elastic problems would be expected.

This is the abstract of my talk at the group seminar on September 27 (Fri).
