Wave propagation in randomly layered media : properties and applications, R&D conférences


At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain (main concepts):
- The foundation in the theory of wave propagation and its application in acoustics, electromagnetics and sismic-reflection engineering issues.
-  The main numerical methods for solving wave propagation problems: finite difference and finite element methods in the time domain and finite element and boundary element methods in the frequency domain.

Needed prerequisite

Undergraduate level in mathematics and numerical analysis. Basic theory of partial differential equations.

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
