Description When realistic complex geometries are considered, the numerical solution of Maxwell’s equations requires the development of ingenious fast and efficient algorithms. A possible approach is based on Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) for the computation of matrix vector products needed by an iterative solver(1). Porting this algorithm on distributed-memory architectures (cloud computing, grid computing) will dramatically expand the size of tractable geometries. This thesis aims at implementing a set of routines for the multidimensional FFT on distributed-memory architectures. The routines will be inserted in an existing numerical code and run on appropriate machines to face some of the most challenging problems in Computational Electromagnetics.
