From modeling population dynamics to understanding the formation of stars, PDE permeate the world of science and engineering. For most real-world problems, the lack of closed-form solutions requires computationally expensive numerical solvers, sometimes consuming millions of core hours and terabytes of storage.
This project aims to identify the conceptual and mathematical relationship among a few different types of neural representation for PDEs, on regular grids or irregular geometries, and design machine learning models that could solve Naivier Stokes equations efficiently and accurately.
