Graduate Student / Postdoc Seminar

Electromagnetic Scattering and Design

Speaker: Leslie Greengard, Courant

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1302

Date: Friday, October 1, 2010, 1 p.m.


I will briefly review the analytic and computational foundations of fast multipole methods (FMMs) for electromagnetics, focusing on their use in solving scattering problems in complex geometry. I will also describe a recently developed class of fast, direct solvers that we hope will form the basis for a new generation of design tools.
