Computational methods to simulate the propagation of electromagnetic waves in complex environments are a key technology in the development of modern photonic devices and structures. Typical goals are for instance to simulate scenarios inaccessible to real world experiments, to simplify or optimize the design of optical materials and functional devices prior to fabrication, and to explore new regimes, effects, and possible applications of light-matter-interaction.
In this one week summer school world leading experts from both mathematics and theoretical physics give a concise introduction to important concepts and recent developments in the field. The lectures will be complemented by computer tutorials to provide insights into the implementation and performance of various algorithms.
Invited lecturers: Sven Burger (ZIB & JCMwave, Germany), Christin David (Univ. Jena, Germany), Andrei Lavrinenko (DTU, Denmark), Owen Miller (Yale Univ., CT, USA), Lothar Nannen (TU Vienna, Austria), Philipp Schneider (ZIB & JCMwave, Germany), Ole Sigmund (DTU, Denmark), Barbara Verfürth (KIT, Germany)
