In this paper an unsplit anisotropic perfectly matched layer (PML) medium, previously utilized in the context of finite element analysis, is implemented in the finite difference time domain (FDTD) algorithm. The FDTD anisotropic PML is easy to implement in the existing FDTD codes, and is well suited for truncating inhomogeneous and layered media without special treatment required in the conventional PML approach. A further advantage of the present approach is improved performance at lower frequencies. The applications of the unsplit anisotropic PML/FDTD method are illustrated by considering the problems of a plane wave propagation and an open microstrip line.


A Non-Galerkin Spatial-Domain Approach for Efficient Calculation of the Dispersion Characteristics of Microstrip Lines
Guedue, Tamer; Alatan, Lale (2008-07-11)
In the analysis of dispersion characteristics of microstrip lines, spectral domain approaches has been preferred as opposed to the spatial domain calculations since the spatial domain Green's functions corresponding to the microstrip structure require the numerical evaluation of inverse Fourier transform integrals which are computationally expensive. However as demonstrated in Bernal, J. et al, (2000), the discrete complex image representation of the spatial domain Greenpsilas functions eliminates the need ...

Three-dimensional condensed asymmetrical node, variable grid, transmission-line matrix (TLM) method has been used in analyzing several millimeter waveguides on anisotropic substrates. The dispersion characteristics of image guides together with field and energy confinement properties at millimeter-wave frequencies have been investigated. Edge coupled microstrip line on a uniaxial substrate is analyzed for the even and odd mode dispersion characteristics. Finally the same analysis is repeated for bilateral f...
A categorical approach to the maximum theorem
Koudenburg, Seerp Roald (2018-08-01)
Berge's maximum theorem gives conditions ensuring the continuity of an optimised function as a parameter changes. In this paper we state and prove the maximum theorem in terms of the theory of monoidal topology and the theory of double categories.
A complete axiomatization for fuzzy functional and multivalued dependencies in fuzzy database relations
Sozat, MI; Yazıcı, Adnan (Elsevier BV, 2001-01-15)
This paper first introduces the formal definitions of fuzzy functional and multivalued dependencies which are given on the basis of the conformance values presented here. Second, the inference rules are listed after both fuzzy functional and multivalued dependencies are shown to be consistent, that is, they reduce to those of the classic functional and multivalued dependencies when crisp attributes are involved. Finally, the inference rules presented here are shown to be sound and complete for the family of...
Investigation of nonplanar perfectly matched absorbers for finite-element mesh truncation
Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (1997-03-01)
In this paper, we present a detailed theoretical and numerical investigation of the perfectly matched layer (PML) concept as applied to the problem of mesh truncation in the finite-element method (FEM), We show that it is possible to extend the Cartesian PML concepts involving half-spaces to cylindrical and spherical geometries appropriate for closed boundaries in two and three dimensions by defining lossy anisotropic layers in the relevant coordinate systems, By using the method of separation of variables,...
