Mathematical framework for handling complex geometries

In this project, the focus is on further closing between theoretical developments and efficient computational tools for real-world problems, with a concrete aim at reducing the model and discretization complexity of complex fault and fracture networks.


Main content

Modern geological descriptions include ever more complex geometric features, as the fidelity of reservoirs, faults, facies and wells increase. This has led to a dramatic increase in numerical complexity, due to the model and grid representations used. The correct mathematical framework for handling complex geometries is that of manifolds.
