The project mission consists of developing mimetic discretizations of partial differential equations which mimic most important properties of underlying physical and mathematical models such as conservation laws and geometrical symmetries of the solution.

This new class of numerical methods enable us to gain greater insights into many physical phenomenena, and solve new problems of interest to DOE mission, and effectively use the inherent power of the current and future generations of scalable parallel supercomputers.
