A reduced basis numerical homogenization method for the wave equation in heterogeneous media is presented. The method is based on a macroscopic discretization of the physical domain with input data recovered from microscopic problems solved by using reduced basis techniques. A priori error analysis is discussed and the convergence rates are verified by numerical experiments that also illustrate the performance of the method.
