Numerical Analysis of Helmholtz Problems (Winter Semester 2021/22)

Please register for the ILIAS course associated to the course. There, you will obtain all relevant information.

The lecture deals with the (numerical) analysis for Helmholtz problems on bounded domains using finite element methods. The Helmholtz equation is an important model in time-harmonic wave propagation. Its analytical and numerical treatment is challenging since the equation is indefinite and typical solutions show oscillations. Contents include modeling of Helmholtz problems, well-posedness analysis of the variational formulation and a priori error estimates for finite element discretizations.

Prerequisites: Basic knowledge about partial differential equations and numerical methods for them. Knowledge about finite element methods is recommended, but not compulsory. (The lecture Finite Element Method can be attended in parallel).
