Coupled-mode theory, developed for several parallel waveguides, is extended to the case of infinite 2-D photonic crystals. Periodic boundary conditions, applied to a system of coupled identical waveguides, are used to compute the photonic band structures. This approach is shown to be more efficient than the usual numerical methods when tested on finite, but large-sized, arrays. Photonic crystals made of single-mode and multimode waveguide arrays are examined
