The Bilkent University Computational Electromagnetics Research Center (BiLCEM) was an excellence center (founded by Prof. Levent Gürel) that was dedicated to the study of the solution of real-life electromagnetics problems using cutting-edge computing technologies.

Applications involve radars, antennas, nanostructures, metamaterials, microelectronics, optics, mobile phone systems, etc. These complicated problems require the numerical solution of extremely large matrix equations. For example, the F-16 fighter illustrated in the picture is modeled with millions of triangles.

BiLCEM researchers developed fast solution techniques to solve such large problems. They also used high-performance computers and construct parallel computing platforms to satisfy the high computational requirements needed for the solutions of millions of unknowns.

Main research areas of BiLCEM were:
Hierarchical Parallelization
Solution of large problems with millions of unknowns
Magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE)
Applications of Computational Electromagnetics
Combined-field integral equation (CFIE)

Recently, the world's largest integral-equation problem in computational electromagnetics was solved at BiLCEM, solving a 375,000,000 x 375,000,000 matrix equation!
