Discrete Electromagnetism with the Finite Integration Technique
By
, Vol. 32, 65-87, 2001
Abstract
The Finite Integration Technique (FIT) is a consistent discretization scheme for Maxwell's equations in their integral form. The resulting matrix equations of the discretized fields can be used for efficient numerical simulations on modern computers. In addition, the basic algebraic properties of this discrete electromagnetic field theory allow to analytically and algebraically prove conservation properties with respect to energy and charge of the discrete formulation and gives an explanation of the stability properties of numerical formulations in the time domain.
