A quadrupole sound source scattering off multiple elastic plates spelling WAVINAR, computed using the method developed in [1]. Plate thickness is emphasised for visualisation.

The focus of this seminar series is on waves interaction with complex media, membranes and metamaterials. The applications include acoustics, aero- and hydro-acoustics, elastic, electromagnetic waves. Key challenge areas to be addressed include the analysis of propagation in complex domains (e.g. with multiscale structure and/or complicated geometries), the development of effective methods for high frequency problems (in particular, the study of canonical problems arising in the Geometrical Theory of Diffraction), and the rigorous analysis and validation of computational methods.

Seminars will be held once every month, of the first Tuesday of the month 16.00-18.00 UK time. There will be three 25 minute talks (plus 5 min for questions) followed by optional informal discussion with one of the speakers.

If you are interested in speaking, or would like to suggest a speaker, please contact Anastasia Kisil ( anastasia.kisil @ manchester.ac.uk ).

For information about the talks and how to join them please see


This seminar series is supported as part of the ICMS/INI Online Mathematical Sciences Seminars.
