Homogenization, which reduces the cost of numerical simulation in materials with repetitive structure, is a promising approach to the design of photonic crystals and metamaterials. But its mathematical foundations may seem daunting. A link with standard harmonic analysis is indicated here ("homogenization as approximate Fourier analysis for lattice group… CONTINUE READING
