Uses of the Berenger PML in Pseudospectral Methods for Maxwell’s Equations
The Berenger perfectly matched layer (PML) has been very successful in the simulation of unbounded domains for the solution of Maxwell’s equations by finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) techniques (Berenger , Katz et al. ). Compared to alternatives, the PML and its variations offer reflection coefficients that are usually orders of magnitude smaller.
