Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) Simulations Using Graphics Processors

  title={Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) Simulations Using Graphics Processors},
  author={S. Adams and Joseph Frank Payne and Rajendra V. Boppana},
  journal={2007 DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program Users Group Conference},
This paper presents a graphics processor based implementation of the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD), which uses a central finite differencing scheme for solving Maxwell's equations for electromagnetics. FDTD simulations can be very computationally expensive and require thousands of CPU hours to solve on traditional general purpose processors. Modern Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) found in desktop computers are programmable and are capable of much higher vector floating-point performance… CONTINUE READING
