A sweeping preconditioner for Yee’s finite difference approximation of time-harmonic Maxwell’s equations
- 66 Downloads
This paper is concerned with the fast iterative solution of linear systems arising from finite difference discretizations in electromagnetics. The sweeping preconditioner with moving perfectly matched layers previously developed for the Helmholtz equation is adapted for the popular Yee grid scheme for wave propagation in inhomogeneous, anisotropic media. Preliminary numerical results are presented for typical examples.
