Abstract : The Discontinuous Galerkin Time Domain (DGTD) methods are now widely used for the solution of wave propagation problems. Able to deal with unstructured meshes past complex geometries, they remain fully explicit with easy parallelization and extension to high orders of accuracy. Still, modal or nodal local basis functions have to be chosen carefully to obtain actual numerical accuracy. Concerning time discretization, explicit non-dissipative energy-preserving time-schemes exist, but their stability limit remains linked to the smallest element size in the mesh. Symplectic algorithms, based on local-time stepping or local implicit scheme formulations, can lead to dramatic reductions of computational time, which is shown here on two-dimensional acoustics problems.
