Joint project with BCAM (Basque Center of Applied Mathematics) funded by the Conseil Régional d'Aquitaine and the Basque Government in the framework of the Aquitaine-Euskadi Call. Total Amount: 14 000 euros.

  • Program: Fonds commun de coopération Aquitaine/Euskadi

  • Project acronym: AKELARRE

  • Project title: Méthodes numériques innovantes et logiciels performants pour la simulation de la propagation des ondes électromagnétiques en milieux complexes

  • Duration: février 2011 - février 2013

  • Coordinator: Hélène Barucq

  • Other partners: BCAM (Basque Center of Applied Mathematics), Spain

  • Abstract: This project brings together the complementary skills in the field of wave propagation of two research teams which are respectively located in Pau and Bilbao. The main objective of this collaboration is to develop innovative numerical methods and to implement powerful software for the simulation of electromagnetic waves in complex media. These waves play an important role in many industrial applications and the development of such software is of great interest for many industrial enterprises located in the region. Theoretical and practical issues are considered. In particular, we focus on the mathematical analysis of boundary conditions that play a crucial role for accurate numerical simulations of waves.
