# Pay tracing tools for high frequency electromagnetics simulations

@inproceedings{Sefi2003PayTT, title={Pay tracing tools for high frequency electromagnetics simulations}, author={S. Sefi}, year={2003} }

Over the past 20 years, the development in ComputationalElectromagnetics has produced a vast choice of methods based onthe large number of existing mathematical formulations of theMaxwell equations. None of them dominate over the others,instead they complement each other and the choice of methoddepends on the frequency range of the electromagnetic waves.This work is focused on the most popular method in the highfrequency scenario, namely the Geometrical Theory ofDiffraction (GTD). The main…
