This three-day event in April 2021 at Gregynog, Wales, is organised by the Special Interest Group for Mathematical Analysis in Acoustics (SIG-MAA) within the UK Acoustic Network.
The Special Interest Group for Mathematical Analysis in Acoustics (SIG-MAA) brings together researchers developing and applying tools from the mathematical fields of applied, numerical and asymptotic analysis in the context of acoustics. Key challenge areas to be addressed include the analysis of wave 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. Mathematical tools that can be applied to such problems include Wiener-Hopf methods, high- and low-frequency asymptotic methods, homogenization, Green’s functions, the unified transform method, boundary integral equations and the theory of special functions. A particular goal of the SIG will be to explore various possibilities for the hybridisation of these diverse techniques in order to develop new tools for the mathematical study of acoustics.
