Depth Imaging Partnership
Magique-3D maintains active collaborations with Total . In the context of depth imaging and with the collaboration of Henri Calandra from Total , Magique-3D coordinates research activities dealing with the development of high-performance numerical methods for solving wave equations in complex media. This project involves French academic researchers in mathematics, computing and in geophysics, and is funded by Total . At the end of 2009, two PhD students working in Magique-3D from 2007, have defended their PhD dealing with new numerical imaging methods that are based on the solution of the full wave equation. Two Ph.D students advised by J. Roman and S. Petiton respectively started to work in january 2008 on computing aspects for optimizing the computational performances of our numerical methods.
The different partners have to work jointly on topics dealing with solving wave equations. A kick-off meeting will be organized in january 2010 to consider new subjects proposed by different INRIA teams.
To our knowledge, this network is the first in the French research community to establish links between industrial and academic researchers in the context of a long-term research program managed by an INRIA team.
