The research deals with:

• the study of global models that are described by a set of convection-diffusion differential equations and representing mechanical systems;

• the analysis and the evaluation of computational methods for convection-diffusion problems;

• the development of scientific software code.

In particular, the computational methods concern with:

• methods for the solution of large-scale nonlinear optimization problems such as those arising in structural topology optimization that determines the optimal distribution of material in a given design domain by minimizing an objective function under certain constraints;

• methods for the solution of nonlinear complementarity problems in elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication;

• integration methods for nonstationary models described by dynamical systems.
