Abstract:
The method of connected local fields (CLF), developed for computing numerical solutions of the two-dimensional (2-D) Helmholtz equation, is capable of advancing existing frequency-domain finite-difference (FD-FD) methods by reducing the spatial sampling density nearly to the theoretical limit of two points per wavelength. In this paper, we show that the core theory of CLF is the result of applying the uniqueness theorem to local EM waves. Furthermore, the mathematical process for computing the local field expansion (LFE) coefficients from eight adjacent points on a square is similar to that in the theory of discrete Fourier transform. We also present a theoretical analysis of both the local and global errors in the theory of connected local fields and provide closed-form expressions for these errors.
