Abstract: In this talk, I will describe mixed multiscale finite element methods for solving elliptic equations with oscillatory coefficients and applications to flows in heterogeneous porous media. The use of limited global information is needed to capture non-local features of the solutions. These features cannot typically be captured via local multiscale basis functions. We will talk about the generalization of mixed MsFEMs to stochastic equations. Finally, the applications to multi-phase flow/transport and nonuniform coarsening mechanisms will be discussed.
