In this talk, we demonstrate the application of Neural Networks with Locally Converging Inputs (NNLCI) to simulate the scattering of electromagnetic waves around two-dimensional perfect electric conductors (PEC). The NNLCIs are designed to output high-fidelity numerical solutions from local patches of two coarse grid numerical solutions obtained by a convergent numerical scheme. Once trained, the NNLCIs can play the role of a computational cost-saving tool for repetitive computations with varying parameters. To generate the inputs to our NNLCI, we design on uniform rectangular grids a second-order accurate finite difference scheme that can handle curved PEC boundaries systematically. More specifically, our numerical scheme is based on the Back and Forth Error Compensation and Correction method together with the construction of ghost points via a level set framework, PDE-based extension technique, and what we term guest values. We illustrate the performance of our NNLCI subject to variations in incident waves as well as PEC boundary geometries.
