Section: Overall Objectives

POEMS activities

The project POEMS is an UMR (Unité Mixte de Recherche) between CNRS, ENSTA ParisTech and Inria (UMR 7231). The general activity of the project is oriented toward the design, the analysis, the numerical approximation and the control of mathematical models for the description of wave propagation in mechanics, physics and engineering sciences.

Beyond the general objective of contributing to the progress of the scientific knowledge, four goals can be ascribed to the project:

  • the development of expertise relative to various types of waves (acoustic, elastic, electromagnetic, gravity waves, ...), their modelling and numerical simulation,

  • the treatment of complex problems whose simulation is close enough to real life situations and industrial applications,

  • the development of original mathematical and numerical techniques,

  • the development of computational codes, in particular in collaboration with external partners (scientists from other disciplines, industry, state companies...)
