Marie Curie Developmet Host Fellowships

"Modelling and Computations in Wave Propagation"

(Project funded by the European Commission, Contract No. HPMD-CT-2001-00121)


Research in wave propagation problems of contemporary geophysics:

-Wave propagation in random media (earth & ocean)

-Exploration geophysics: imaging in noisy environment. & statistical inverse theory

-Geophysical flows: water waves, atmospheric fluid dynamics and meteorology.

Research Topics

-Linear transport equations for high frequency propagation and random media

-Meshless numerical methods and subgrid numerical modeling

-Numerical methods for stochastic equations

-Absorbing boundary and transport-theoretic conditions for propagation in infinite domains

-Finite element and finile volume methods, adaptivity and stabilized methods

-Modeling in ocean acoustics and seismic waves

-Modeling of ocean and atmospheric flows
