Domain compression via anisotropic metamaterials designed by coordinate transformations

Ozgun, Ozlem
Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa
We introduce a spatial coordinate transformation technique to compress the excessive white space (i.e. free-space) in the computational domain of finite methods. This approach is based on the form-invariance property of Maxwell's equations under coordinate transformations. Clearly, Maxwell's equations are still satisfied inside the transformed space, but the medium turns into an anisotropic medium whose constitutive parameters are determined by the coordinate transformation. The proposed technique can be employed to reduce the number of unknowns especially in high-frequency applications wherein a finite method requires an electrically-large computational domain. After developing the analytical background of this technique, we report some numerical results for finite element simulations of electromagnetic scattering problems.


Spectral element formulations on non-conforming grids: A comparative study of pointwise matching and integral projection methods
Sert, Cüneyt (Elsevier BV, 2006-01-01)
Pointwise matching (PM) and integral projection (IP) methods are two widely used techniques to extend the classical weak formulations to include non-conforming grids. We present spectral element formulations on polynomial (p-type) and geometric (h-type) non-conforming grids using both the PM (also known as the Constrained Approximation) and IP (also known as the Mortar Element) methods. We systematically compare the convergence characteristics of PM and IP methods for diffusion, convection, and convection-d...
Circularly symmetric solutions of minimal massive gravity at its merger point
Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür (IOP Publishing, 2019-07-25)
I find all the static circularly symmetric solutions of minimal massive 3D gravity at its merger point, construct stationary versions of these and discuss some of their geometric and physical properties. It turns out that apart from a static hairy black hole, there is also a static gravitational soliton, that has been overlooked in the literature.
Spherically symmetric solutions of Einstein plus non-polynomial gravities
Deser, S.; Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür; Tekin, Bayram (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-01-01)
We obtain the static spherically symmetric solutions of a class of gravitational models whose additions to the General Relativity (GR) action forbid Ricci-flat, in particular, Schwarzschild geometries. These theories are selected to maintain the (first) derivative order of the Einstein equations in Schwarzschild gauge. Generically, the solutions exhibit both horizons and a singularity at the origin, except for one model that forbids spherical symmetry altogether. Extensions to arbitrary dimension with a cos...
Symmetric Surface Momentum and Centripetal Force for a Particle on a Curved Surface
Shikakhwa, M. S. (IOP Publishing, 2018-09-01)
The Hermitian surface momentum operator for a particle confined to a 2D curved surface spanned by orthogonal coordinates and embedded in 3D space is expressed as a symmetric expression in derivatives with respect to the surface coordinates and so is manifestly along the surface. This is an alternative form to the one reported in the literature and usually named geometric momentum, which has a term proportional to the mean curvature along the direction normal to the surface, and so "apparently" not along the...
Shortcuts to high symmetry solutions in gravitational theories
Deser, S; Tekin, Bayram (IOP Publishing, 2003-11-21)
We apply the Weyl method, as sanctioned by Palais' symmetric criticality theorems, to obtain those-highly symmetric-geometries amenable to explicit solution, in generic gravitational models and dimension. The technique consists of judiciously violating the rules of variational principles by inserting highly symmetric, and seemingly gauge fixed, metrics into the action, then varying it directly to arrive at a small number of transparent, indexless, field equations. Illustrations include spherically and axial...
