About Me

The research of Jonathan H. C. Luke has focused on the modeling and analysis of physical problems primarily in the areas of low-Reynolds-number fluid dynamics and wave propagation in complex media. His studies in sedimentation theory cover the topics of velocity fluctuations, renormalization, the method of reflections, cluster dynamics, and variational and numerical methods. His studies of electromagnetic waves in highly dispersive media mainly concern energy deposition and numerical methods. His current projects include analysis of the stability of numerical implementations of no-slip boundary conditions for the Navier-Stokes equations in streamfunction-vorticity form, simulation and analysis of energy deposition from electromagnetic waves in dispersive materials, and effective boundary conditions for heating and scattering problems in microwave cavities.
