Objectives
The complexity of real communication systems requires from software tools being able to predict the behavior of different components and subsystems. The student will have a global vision about the main computational methodologies on which commercial software are based on, i.e., electromagnetic solvers. The specific competences that will be obtained by the students are: - Choosing the proper electromagnetic solver for each application - Getting the know how about the mathematical modelling and numerical implementation in electromagnetic solvers. - Knowing the computational skills in different platforms. - Basic knowledge about HPC in computational electromagnetism
