Finite-Difference Solution of the Helmholtz Equation Based on Two Domain Decomposition Algorithms

Show more

In this paper, wave simulation with the finite difference method for the Helmholtz equation based on the domain decomposition method is investigated. The method solves the problem by iteratively solving subproblems defined on smaller subdomains. Two domain decomposition algorithms both for nonoverlapping and overlapping methods are described. More numerical computations including the benchmark Marmousi model show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithms. This method can be expected to be used in the full-waveform inversion in the future.
