Meshless techniques for anisotropic diffusion

Annamaria Mazzia, Giorgio Pini, Flavio Sartoretto
2014 Applied Mathematics and Computation  
The latter would allow better use of parallel computers, since time-stepping is essentially a serial process. Moreover, it would be good for the methods to be of high order accuracy.  ...  Transport processes are common in geoscience applications, and find their way into models of, e.g., the atmosphere, oceans, shallow water, subsurface, seismic inversion, and deep earth.  ...  We present complex scenarios of multicomponent reactive transport in 2-D and in 3-D. These scenarios are further developments of the setting given by the MoMaS benchmark.  ...
