Absorbing Boundary Conditions for the Wave Equation and Parallel Computing

Published inMathematics of computation, vol. 74, no. 249, p. 153-176
Publication date2004

Absorbing boundary conditions have been developed for truncating unbounded computational domains to bounded ones. The authors investigate the use of absorbing boundary conditions in domain decomposition algorithms for the wave equation. Moreover, they optimize the absorbing boundary conditions in order to obtain a good performance of the Schwarz waveform relaxation algorithm. The analysis given is confirmed by numerical experiments.
