  • The general scientific context of the collaboration proposed in the HOMAR project is the study of time dependent wave propagation problems presenting multiscale features (in space and time). The general goal is the design, analysis and implementation of a family of innovative high performance numerical methods particularly well suited to the simulation of such multiscale wave propagation problems. Mathematical models based on partial differential equations (PDE) embedding multiscale features occur in a wide range of scientific and technological applications involving wave propagation in heterogeneous media. Electromagnetic wave propagation and seismic wave propagation are two relevant physical settings that will be considered in the project. Indeed, the present collaborative project will focus on two particular application contexts: the interaction of light (i.e. optical wave) with nanometer scale structure (i.e. nanophotonics) and, the interaction of seismic wave propagation with geological media for quantitative and non destructive evaluation of imperfect interfaces.
