High Performance methods for solving wave equations

Seismic Imaging of realistic 3D complex elastodynamic media does not only require advanced mathematical methods but also High Performing Computing (HPC) technologies, both from a software and hardware point of view. In the framework of our collaboration with Total, we are optimizing our algorithms, based on Discontinuous Galerkin methods, in the following directions.

We are confident in the fact that the optimizations of the code will allow us to perform large-scale calculations and inversion of geophysical data for models and distributed data volumes with a resolution level impossible to reach in the past.
