Our Mission

The Analytic Element Groundwater Modeling Community is a group of researchers and supporters working together to create mathematical codes and applied models using the Analytic Element Method (AEM). The AEM is a technique for solving problems in continuum mechanics that is based on the superposition of analytical functions and requires no discretization of the model space. AEM was originally created for use in GROUNDWATER FLOW modeling.

The goal of the Analytic Element Groundwater Modeling Community website is to encourage the application and development of the analytic element method by:

  • Providing a center of information exchange for AEM researchers, developers, and users.
  • Providing links to the latest AEM codes, including open-source efforts.
