The higher order (2,4) scheme optimized in terms of Taylor series in the finite-difference time-domain method is often used to reduce numerical dispersion and anisotropy. This paper investigates optimization of the numerical dispersion behavior for a square Yee mesh based on the (2,4) computational stencil. It is shown that, for one designated frequency, numerical dispersion can be eliminated for some directions of travel, such as the coordinate axes or the diagonals, or numerical anisotropy… CONTINUE READING
