Research Group of Sashikumaar Ganesan


The Numerical Mathematics and Scientific Computing research group in SERC is under the Division of Interdisciplinary Research at Indian Institute of Science Bangalore, India.

The research group focus on the development and advancement of robust numerical (finite element) methods for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) which describe incompressible fluid flows and species concentration and/or energy in complex systems. The group has ongoing collaboration with several academic in Germany. The group works on – but is not limited to – implementing efficient algorithms for high-performance computing.
