High-Order Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for Computational Electromagnetics and Uncertainty Quantification
We discuss the basics of discontinuous Galerkin methods (DG) for CEM as an alternative of emerging importance to the widely used FDTD. The benefits of DG methods include geometric flexibility, high-order accuracy, explicit timeadvancement, and very high parallel performance for large scale applications. The performance of the scheme shall be illustrated by several examples. As an example of particular interest, we further explore efficient probabilistic ways of dealing with uncertainty and uncertainty quantification in electromagnetics applications. Whereas the discussion often draws on scattering applications, the techniques are applicable to general problems in CEM.
