    Abstract
    The main idea of the Particle Finite Element Method in both versions: with moving mesh or with fixed mesh, are to have a set of particles that move in a Lagrangian frame convecting [...]

    Abstract
    In many situations ranging from geophysics to chemical engineering, turbulent drag moves particle clouds. I will present and compare various numerical approaches. On the one [...]

    Abstract
    Particles are used to simulate phenomena spanning twenty orders of magnitude, from the folding of proteins to the formation of our universe. I distinguish particle methods [...]

    Abstract
    A first-principles model for the simulation of pedestrian flows and crowd dynamics capable of computing the movement of millions of pedestrians in real time has been developed. [...]
