Texas ECE graduate student Guneet Kaur and her advisor Prof. Ali Yilmaz have received the 2015 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Ulrich L. Rohde Innovative Conference Paper Award on Computational Techniques in Electromagnetics. The recently established award was presented to two of the most innovative papers in the IEEE International Conference on Computational Electromagnetics (ICCEM2015). Their paper, titled “a parallel out-of-core algorithm for time-domain adaptive integral method,” describes a multi-level algorithm to overcome the limitations posed by the large memory requirement of time-marching integral-equation solvers. The paper shows that the algorithm can leverage the large external disk space available on modern computers and supercomputers without significantly slowing down the simulations.
