Feedback form is now closed.
Discontinuous Galerkin methods allow for high order accurate simulations of wave propagation in heterogeneous media and complex geometries. However, models of media and geometry are typically approximated with low order accuracy, as high order approximations of these models can introduce high storage costs or the loss of stability and high order accuracy.

In this talk, we describe how Weight-adjusted discontinuous Galerkin (WADG) methods allow for high order accurate approximations of heterogeneous media and geometry while preserving low storage costs, energy stability, and high order accuracy. Numerical results confirm the accuracy and computational performance of WADG methods for benchmark problems in acoustic and elastic wave propagation.
