Multiscale model reduction using generalized multiscale finite element method

In this talk, I will discuss multiscale model reduction techniques for problems in heterogeneous media and their applications. The objective is to design a framework for constructing reduced order models for problems with multiple scales and high contrast. I will focus on recently proposed methods that are based on Generalized Multiscale Finite Element Method (GMsFEM). The main idea of this approach is to systematically incorporate the small-scale information into multiscale basis functions. These methods are intended for multiscale problems without scale separation and high contrast. I will discuss the issues related to multiscale basis construction and a number of applications to flows in porous media, wave equations, and problems in perforated domains.
