讲座题目:Computational Forensics for the Syrian Sarin Attack in April 2017:What Has Happened 
讲座摘要:In the morning between 6 ~ 7am of April 4, 2017 , a sarin chemical attack took place in Khan Shaykhun in the Idlib Governorate of Syria. It killed 86 people and injured more than 500. On the morning of 7 April 2017, 72 hours after the attack, the Trump Administration of the United States launched 59Tomahawk cruise missiles from the USS Porter on Shayrat Airbase, as a "punishments" and a strong admonition.The only undisputable fact is that a chemical attack did take place. This equation is to be coupled with the conservation of mass, momentum, energy and constitutive equations for the numerical computation and simulation of the explosion and fracture effects. We will indicate how to proceed with the computation with LS-DYNA and the input, and also how to do data validation. Supercomputer results the outputs are then visualized through several videos. Based on the videos, discussions and assessments about the chemical attack are then made. This research work is still ongoing and unfinished. Some future outlook will be provided.

报告人简介:Goong Chen was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in 1950. He received his BSc (Math) from the National Tsing Hua University in Hsinchu, Taiwan in 1972 and PhD (Math) from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in 1977. He has taught at the Southern Illinois University at Carbondale (1977–78), and the Pennsylvania State University at University Park (1978–1987). Since 1987, he has been Professor of Mathematics and Aerospace Engineering, and (since 2000) a member of the Institute for Quantum Studies, at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. He has written over one hundred and fifty papers, seven advanced texts/monographs, and co-edited four books. He is an Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications, and the Editor-in-Chief of the Elsevier/Academic Press’ Mathematics in Science and Engineering Book Series. He has served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Chapman & Hall/CRC Press Applied Mathematics and Nonlinear Science Series (2002-2011), and as Associate Editor for several othereditorial boards, including the SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization, the International Journal on Quantum Information, Physica Scripta, and the Electronic Journal of Differential Equations. He is also a co-holder of a U.S. Patent on certain quantum circuit design for quantum computing. He has memberships in the American Mathematical Society (AMS) and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
