    We develop a P-multigrid solver to simulate locally preconditioned unsteady compressible Navier–Stokes equations at low Mach numbers with implicit high-order methods. Specifically, the high-order flux reconstruction/correction ...
  • Social Media-based User Embedding: A Literature Review 

    Pan, Shimei; Ding, Tao (2019-06)
    Automated representation learning is behind many recent success stories in machine learning. It is often used to transfer knowledge learned from a large dataset (e.g., raw text) to tasks for which only a small number ...
