Working at the crossroads of computer sciences and mathematics, over the last 40 years Inria's researchers have been developing the scientific foundations for a new field of learning: computational sciences. Inria is France's only public research body fully dedicated to computational sciences. When associated with other scientific disciplines, computational sciences can be used to offer new concepts, languages, methods and teaching aids which open up new avenues for exploration and understanding of complex phenomena. Working in project-teams, Inria researchers mix fundamental and applied research in an innovative blend to produce their results.
Within DEEP-ER, the Nachos project-team focuses on the development of a scalable high order finite element type solver for the realistic numerical modelling of electromagnetic wave interaction with biological tissues. The resulting high performance simulation software is used for numerical dosimetry studies of human exposure to microwave radiation from wireless systems.
