High-order Numerical Methods for Computational Electromagnetics and Acoustics

These researchers have developed a variety of efficient numerical techniques for the simulation of electromagnetic- and acoustic-wave scattering processes in the time and frequency domains. Their novel procedures are based on effective, high-order treatments of integral and differential formulations of the scattering problem. Their initial work on a wide array of test cases demonstrated the viability of the newly developed schemes for scattering simulations, and it also proved that they offer the potential for substantial improvement in simulation capabilities over currently available methods. The confirmation of these advantages for practical, realistic geometric arrangements at frequencies of interest, however, demands the use of supercomputing resources. The researchers are using the supercomputers to improve and expand their current codes to efficiently run simulations of practical interest.
