  • An Isenthalpic-Based Framework for Nonlinear Thermal SimulationThermal enhanced oil recovery (EOR) involves the interplay of mass and energy transport with complex phase behavior. Hydrocarbon-water interactions govern the behavior of these systems in which components partition across multiple fluid phases as a function of composition, pressure and temperature. In this work we develop a thermodynamically consistent framework ...

  • Lecture 3: Mathematics and Computation (through the lens of one problem and one algorithm). Proving Analytic InequalitiesThe celebrated Brascamp-Lieb (BL) inequalities, and their reverse form of Barthe, is a powerful framework which unifies and generalizes many important inequalities in analysis, convex geometry and information theory. I will exemplify BL inequalities, building to the general set-up. I will describe the structural theory that characterizes existence and ...
