. We introduce new finite-dimensional spaces specifically designed to approximate the solutions to high-frequency Helmholtz problems with smooth variable coefficients in dimension d . These discretization spaces are spanned by Gaussian coherent states, that have the key property to be localised in phase space. We carefully select the Gaussian coherent states spanning the approximation space by exploiting the (known) micro-localisation properties of the solution. For a large class of source terms…

Decay of coefficients and approximation rates in Gabor Gaussian frames

This work analyzes decay properties of the coefficients of functions in these frames in terms of the regularity of the functions and their decay at infinity, and permits to show that a good approximation to any smooth rapidly decaying function is provided.



The Helmholtz boundary element method does not suffer from the pollution effect

In d dimensions, approximating an arbitrary function oscillating with frequency . k requires ∼ k degrees of freedom. A numerical method for solving the Helmholtz equation (with wavenumber k and in d


We are concerned with a finite element approximation for time-harmonic wave propagation governed by the Helmholtz equation. The usually oscillatory behavior of solutions, along with numerical

Perfectly-matched-layer truncation is exponentially accurate at high frequency

These are the first results on the exponential accuracy of PML at high-frequency with non-trivial scatterers and hold in the framework of black-box scattering under the assumption of an exponential bound on the norm of the cutoff resolvent.

Finite Element Solution of the Helmholtz Equation with High Wave Number Part II: The h - p Version of the FEM

In this paper, which is part II in a series of two, the investigation of the Galerkin finite element solution to the Helmholtz equation is continued. While part I contained results on the $h$ version

Convergence analysis for finite element discretizations of the Helmholtz equation with Dirichlet-to-Neumann boundary conditions

A rigorous convergence theory for Galerkin methods for a model Helmholtz problem in $\Bbb R^d, d \in \{1,2,3\}$ is presented. General conditions on the approximation properties of the approximation
