This paper describes a memory-reduced (MR) compact two-dimensional (2-D) order-marching time-domain (OMTD) method for full-wave analyses. To reduce memory requirements in the OMTD method, the divergence theorem is introduced to obtain a memory-efficient matrix equation. A lossy microstrip line is presented to validate the accuracy and efficiency of our algorithm.
