Computational Nanotechnology Using Finite Difference Time Domain

With its ability to perform fast EM simulations in the time domain, EMPro's Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) EM simulator is well suited to monitor the high electrical fields generated by the electric discharge within innovative ESD structures.

He starts with the basic principles of electromagnetic theory, then moves to analytical methods and orthogonal functions, Green's functions, computer integration and conformal mapping, Fourier transform methods, computational methods, method of finite differences, finite difference time domain analysis, and variational methods.

The textbook pivots on the big three techniques: finite difference time domain (FDTD), method of moments (MoM), and finite element method (FEM).

The finite difference time domain (FDTD) method is a common method used in computational electromagnetics that, by its very nature, lends itself to efficient parallel processing.

In the finite difference time domain method (FDTD) method a non-rectangular computational domain is usually approximated by a rectangular domain to terminate the region by an absorbing boundary.
