Computing Wave Propagation
Friday, October 26, 1PM – 2PM
All we know of our world around us comes from high frequency wave propagation – seeing and hearing. Recently, wireless communication, medical imaging and the search for natural resources drive the development of computational techniques for approximating wave propagation. We will discuss challenges and the state of the art in simulating high frequency wave fields.
Bio: Engquist came to The University of Texas at Austin in 2004, where he holds the Computational and Applied Mathematics Chair I, and is director of the ICES Center for Numerical Analysis. Engquist’s research focuses on development and analysis of numerical methods for differential equations, and he is presently working on computational multi-scale methods and fast algorithms for wave propagation with applications in seismology.
