ON SOME STRATEGIES FOR COMPUTER SIMULATION OF THE WAVE PROPAGATION USING FINITE DIFFERENCES II. MULTI-DIMENSIONAL FDTD METHOD

¼ubomír Šumichrast

   Some strategies used in the computer simulation of wave phenomena by means of finite differences in time-domain (FDTD) method are reviewed and discussed here. It is shown that the wave equation in its discretised form possesses different properties in comparison with the true differential formulation. In this part the issues of stability and numerical dispersion for two- and three-dimensional case of wave propagation in homogeneous space are thoroughly investigated.

Keywords: wave phenomena, computer simulation, finite differences in time domain (FDTD) method
