3:45 PM-5:45 PM
(This session will run until 6:15 PM).
Parabolic equation (PE) techniques provide efficient numerical solutions for a variety of wave propagation problems. The wave equation is approximately factorized into two parabolic terms which can then be solved by marching techniques, requiring far less computing resources than the original elliptic equation. The techniques can be applied to underwater acoustics, radiowave propagation in the atmosphere, seismics, optics and electromagnetic scattering. The minisymposium is intended to give non-specialists an overview of what is achievable today, and to provide specialists with an update on recent progress.
The speakers will discuss X-ray optics, radiowave propagation, scattering by rough surfaces and electromagnetic scattering from 3-dimensional objects.
