Green's Functions, Boundary Integral Equations and Rotational Symmetry


Surface integral equations are a major component of many physical and biological models. However, constructing high order accurate numerical methods to solve these integral equations remains an active area of research even today. Sometimes though, certain symmetries in the problem often make it easier to handle. In this talk, we will discuss how we can use Fourier series expansion to reduce dimensionality of Stokes’ integral equation on an axis-symmetric surface, and use it to construct fast numerical solvers for this problem.
