Project description

The currently known plane wave methods are all numerically unstable or computationally suboptimal. Starting from techniques developed in the Ph.D. of the applicant, research will focus on finding a method that is both efficient and numerically stable. At the same time, possibilities for preconditioning plane wave methods will be explored.
