Electromagnetic theory is based on Maxwell’s equations. In this course, we analyse the most commonly used numerical methods for the solution of these partial difference methods. The numerical methods include: spectral methods, finite differences in the time domain (FDTD), finite element method (FEM), method of moments (MoM), and high frequency approximations (GO and GTD).
