Spectral analysis of nonlinear flowsMS15

We will examine flows through a nonlinear eigenvalue perspective. First we will show how gradient descent can reveal the eigen-structure of the initial condition, with a somewhat similar intuition as in the linear case. We will then discuss preliminary findings related to eigenfunctions of anisotropic diffusion.

This presentation is part of Minisymposium “MS15 - Nonlinear Diffusion: Models, Extensions and Algorithms (2 parts)
