Computational electromagnetics

The Applied Electromagnetics group has a strong expertise in Computational Electromagnetics (CEM), and it has developed several high performance algorithms for computer-assisted design, antenna optimization and synthesis, electromagnetic virtual prototyping, and diagnostic tools associated to measurement systems. In particular, the research group has developed algorithms, based on the Method of Moments matrix preconditioning and compression, able to analyze complex, multi-scale and electrically large structures, outside the capabilities of commercial software tools. The background of this research activity is the frequency domain full wave analysis of arbitrary 3-D bodies, where the Maxwell Partial Differential Equations (PDE) are solved with a Boundary Element Method (BEM), so that the unknowns are on body surfaces only. In the recent years, the BEM has become the winning technology for large and complex structures such as in naval, aerospace, satellite, and antenna problems.
