Reduced Basis Methods for Maxwell's Equations

Investigation of Reduced Basis Methods in the context of the MoreSim4Nano project.




Project director: Researcher: Duration: since January 2011

Project description:
Parametric Model Order Reduction (PMOR) techniques are required in many-query and real-time scenarios, like uncertainty quantification for instance. The Reduced Basis Method as a PMOR technique is applied to problems arising from electromagnetic field simulations of semiconductor structures under the variation of frequency, geometry (e.g. feature size width) and material parameters (e.g. permittivity, permeability). The modeling and simulation of the EM-field problems is a part of the MoreSim4Nano project, which is also present in the CSC group.
In the context of EM-field problems, the following topics within the Reduced Basis Method are adressed:
  • large parameter spaces
  • construction of parameter-affine forms
  • error estimation of inf-sup stable problems
  • application of the successive constraint method to problems exhibiting resonances
