Parabolic Wave Equation Techniques (Part I of II)

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Room: Sidney Smith 2108

Many nonseparable wave propagation problems can be solved with parabolic wave equation methods. The speakers will discuss the development and assessment of nonlocal radiation boundary conditions; the application of one-way wave equations to obstacle scattering in a waveguide; the modeling of multiscale phenomena in rough surface scattering; the exact, well-posed, one-way reformulation of elliptic, direct wave propagation problems; the application of the generalized Bremmer series to layer-stripping-based inversion schemes; and acousto-gravity waves. They will discuss applications including underwater acoustics and seismic exploration, and focus on both model development and computational algorithm accuracy and efficiency.
