Course description:

In this short course, we will introduce several numerical methods for incompressible fluid coupled with interface, include Immersed Boundary method, Immersed interface method, Level set method, Boundary integral method. Among these methods, we will focus on the Immersed Boundary method, and also give brief introduction to other three methods. The Immersed Boundary method was originally developed in last 70's to compute the blood flow in the heart. In the framework of Immersed Boundary method, it is easy to deal with the interface with complex geometric structure and easy to implement. In the past 20 years, it was broadly applied in many fields, include bio-mechanics, multiphase flow, turbulence simulation etc. In this short course, I will try to give a whole picture about the Immersed Boundary method, include its model, numerical discretization, some theoretical results, recent developments and relations with other numerical methods.
