Choosing the appropriate computational method for a photonics problem requires a clear understanding of the pros and cons of the available numerical methods. Numerical Methods in Photonics presents six of the most frequently used methods : FDTD, FDFD, 1+1D nonlinear propagation, modal method, Green's function, and FEM. After an introductory chapter outlining the basics of Maxwell's equations, the book includes self-contained chapters that focus on each of the methods. Each method is accompanied by a review of the mathematical principles on which it is based, along with sample scripts, illustrative examples of characteristic problem solving, and exercises. MATTAB is used throughout the text. This book provides a solid basis to practice writing your own codes. The basic theory is complemented by sets of exercises, which allow you to grasp the essence of the modeling tools.
