Workshop Computational Electro-Magnetics

Event: 26 May 2011: Discontinuous Galerkin Methods in Computational Electro- magnetics:  A Workshop on Recent developments in Theory and Applications

Discontinuous Galerkin Methods in Computational Electro magnetics:  A Workshop on Recent developments In Theory and Applications

Date: May 26, 2011
Location: National Aerospace Laboratory (NLR) - Amsterdam
Audience: We aim to address PhD students and experienced computational electromagnetics modelers, that are new to discontinuous Galerkin methods and have them interact with DG developers.
Subject: Discontinuous Galerkin methods have been developed only relatively recently. They combine three key properties that make these very attractive for the discretisation of either hyperbolic or elliptic partial differential equations in comparison with e.g. ‘classic’ finite element methods:
· Efficient combined h-p refinement
· Straightforward parallelization and porting to GPU architecture
· Accurate representation of field discontinuities and singularities
Discontinuous Galerkin methods have general applicability, but this workshop focuses on the application for electromagnetic simulations. Especially the multi-scale character of large-scale high frequency scattering computations brings out the advantages offered by these methods.
We would like to bring forward the potential of this technology in an environment still dominated by the application of ‘classic’ finite element and boundary integral methods.
