Parallelization of a finite difference time domain code for the simulation of practical engineering problems
Keywords and Phrases
Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD)
"Full-wave time-domain algorithms, such as the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method, are extensively used in the design of electromagnetic systems. Many systems have become increasingly complex so that it is not possible to run a practical problem on a single-processor computer. Writing and implementing a practical parallel FDTD code that executes on one computer with many processors or many single-processor computers significantly reduces the computation time. This paper discusses the algorithms required for parallelizing an existing FDTD code, EZ-FDTD, using the Message-Passing Interface (MPI) library"--Abstract, leaf iii.
