Wave Motion – a Fundamental Concept of Nature. Predicting the propagation of wave energy for high-frequency waves is a challenging task of fundamental importance in many engineering applications. These range from acoustics and vibrations in complex built-up structures such as cars and airplanes – think noise – to modelling electromagnetic radiation in the radio to the infrared spectrum with applications in telecommunication and heat transfer. The Wave Modelling Research Group in the University of Nottingham uses advanced mathematical tools from wave asymptotics to wave chaos theory to solve engineering wave problems in an interdisciplinary collaboration between colleagues from School of Mathematical Sicences, George Green Institute for Electromagnetics Research, Institute for Aerospace Technology, Composites Research Group and School of Physics and Astronomy.
