# Laurent Demanet : Time upscaling of wave equations via discrete symbol calculus

The complexity of solving the time-dependent wave equation via traditional methods scales faster than linearly in the complexity of the initial data. This behavior is mostly due to the necessity of timestepping at the CFL level, and is hampering the resolution of large-scale inverse scattering problems such as reflection seismology, where massive datasets need to be processed. In this talk I will report on some algorithmic progress toward time upscaling of the wave equation using discrete symbol calculus for pseudodifferential and Fourier integral operators. Joint work with Lexing Ying from UT Austin.
