Title: At the interface between semiclassical analysis and numerical analysis of wave problems

Abstract: The goal of this talk is to give examples of how, in the context of wave scattering, results from semiclassical analysis (roughly speaking, rigorous study of high-frequency asymptotics of solutions of wave equations) can help answer questions from numerical analysis, and how questions from numerical analysis prompt new questions for semiclassical analysis.
