Book description
Introduction to the FiniteDifference TimeDomain (FDTD) Method for Electromagnetics provides a comprehensive tutorial of the most widely used method for solving Maxwell's equations  the Finite Difference TimeDomain Method. This book is an essential guide for students, researchers, and professional engineers who want to gain a fundamental knowledge of the FDTD method. It can accompany an undergraduate or entrylevel graduate course or be used for selfstudy. The book provides all the background required to either research or apply the FDTD method for the solution of Maxwell's equations to practical problems in engineering and science. Introduction to the FiniteDifference TimeDomain (FDTD) Method for Electromagnetics guides the reader through the foundational theory of the FDTD method starting with the onedimensional transmissionline problem and then progressing to the solution of Maxwell's equations in three dimensions. It also provides step by step guides to modeling physical sources, lumpedcircuit components, absorbing boundary conditions, perfectly matched layer absorbers, and subcell structures. Post processing methods such as network parameter extraction and farfield transformations are also detailed. Efficient implementations of the FDTD method in a high level language are also provided.
