“A differential eigenproblem of electromagnetics”

Wednesday 3 March 2021 h. 14:30 - Zoom - Michele Zaccaron (Dipartimento di Matematica “Tullio Levi-Civita”)


We start with a preliminary overview of Sobolev spaces, very useful in the modern approach to solve PDEs. We then introduce an eigenvalue problem arising from time-harmonic Maxwell’s equations, deriving its so-called weak formulation and showing some first properties. The last part of the seminar will focus on the domain perturbation, inspecting the dependence of the eigenvalues upon variation of the region in which we set our problem, and presenting a result regarding shape optimization.

The talk is of introductory type and its purpose is to let the audience have a look at some of the tools and concepts from the spectral theory of differential operators.
