The Laboratory of Computational Electrodynamics was organized in 1969 as a department of the Computing Center at the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of the Moscow State University. It implemented a plan of important studies oriented on the development of mathematical methods and on the computer-aided solving of applied electromagnetics problems. Since 1970, the laboratory is a unit of the Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics.

Staff members:

  • Salnikov Alexey, Leading Research Fellow, PhD
  • Galishnikova Tamara, Senior Research Fellow, PhD
  • Efimova Irina, Senior Research Fellow, PhD
  • Berezhnaya Irina, Leading Mathematician

Main scientific directions

The main streamline of the Laboratory’s research is mathematical modeling, development and justification of numerical methods for solving problems of the electromagnetic wave theory, and application of these methods in electromagnetics and optics for investigating direct and inverse problems of electromagnetic wave scattering by various objects. Numerical methods are based on the method of discrete sources and the integral equation method. Both stationary and nonstationary problems are considered. The research that is carried out at the Laboratory is applied for calculating and designing antennas, radio waveguides, and dielectric and strip transmission lines as well as for analyzing reflection by irregular medium interfaces occurring during an electromagnetic sounding of the Earth’s surface. The Laboratory gives base for the practical training of students of the Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics.
