We analyze the geometrically consistent schemes proposed by E. Lu and Yang  for one-dimensional problem with finite range interaction. The existence of the reconstruction coefficients is proved, and optimal error estimate is derived under sharp stability condition. Numerical experiments are performed to confirm the theoretical results.
Numerical error caused by “ghost forces” in a quasicontinuum method is studied in the context of dynamic problems. The error in the discrete W1,∞ norm is analyzed for the time scale (ε) and the time scale (1) with ε being the lattice spacing.
We introduce a new multigrid method to study the lattice statics model arising from nanoindentation. A constrained Cauchy-Born elasticity model is used as the coarse-grid operator. This method accelerates the relaxation process and considerably reduces the computational cost. In particular, it saves quite a bit when dislocations nucleate and move, as demonstrated by the simulation results.
We propose a multigrid method to solve the molecular mechanics model (molecular dynamics at zero temperature). The Cauchy-Born elasticity model is employed as the coarse grid operator and the elastically deformed state as the initial guess of the molecular mechanics model. The efficiency of the algorithm is demonstrated by three examples with homogeneous deformation, namely, one dimensional chain under tensile deformation and aluminum under tension and shear deformations. The method exhibits linear-scaling computational complexity, and is insensitive to parameters arising from iterative solvers. In addition, we study two examples with inhomogeneous deformation: vacancy and nanoindentation of aluminum. The results are still satisfactory while the linear-scaling property is lost for the latter example.
This is the second part of the paper for a Non-Newtonian flow. Dual
combined Finite Element Methods are used to investigate the little
parameter-dependent problem arising in a nonliner three field version of
the Stokes system for incompressible fluids, where the viscosity obeys a
general law including the Carreau's law and the Power law. Certain
parameter-independent error bounds are obtained which solved the problem
proposed by Baranger in  in a unifying way. We also give some
stable finite element spaces by exemplifying the abstract B-B
inequality. The continuous approximation for the extra stress is achieved
as a by-product of the new method.
