Written by the pioneer and foremost authority on the subject, this new book is both a comprehensive university textbook and professional/research reference on the finite-difference time-domain (FD-TD) computational solution method for Maxwell's equations. It presents in-depth discussions of: The revolutionary Berenger PML absorbing boundary condition; FD-TD modelling of nonlinear, dispersive, and gain optical materials used in lasers and optical microchips; unstructured FD-TD meshes for modelling of complex systems; 2.5-dimensional body-of-revolution FD-TD algorithms; Linear and nonlinear electronic circuit models, including a seamless tie-in to SPICE; Digital signal postprocessing of FD-TD data; FD-TD modelling of microlaser cavities; and FD-TD software development for the latest Intel and Cray massively parallel computers.
