The method of fundamental solutions is a relatively new method for the numerical solution of certain partial differential equations in which a fundamental solution of the operator in the governing equation is known explicitly. The ease with which it can be implemented and its effectiveness have made it a very popular tool for the solution of a largevariety of problems arising in Science and Engineering. In recent years, it has been used extensively for an important class of problems, namely inverse problems. As the accuracy of the approximation obtained by using the method of fundamental solutions depends on the location of the sources, in order to obtain a satisfactorily accurate approximation, one needs to place the sources in an appropriate way. A practical way of achieving this with minimal computational cost is yet to be found for inverse Stefan problems. This proposal seeks funding for a postdoctoral project in view of the growing interest in this area. The project will develop Mathematical analysis and numerical methods to gain understanding of this approach and will focus in particular on the one and multi phase inverse Stefan problems. A part of this work will be in collaboration with Dr. Michael Vynnycky from the Royal Institute of Technologyin Stockholm, Sweden, and will complement, and interact with other modelling projects those are being carried out there.
