Introduction to Numerical Methods
This module explores the various classes of numerical methods that are used in Photonics, and how these are classified, their simplifying assumptions. The content will also include discussion on the advantages and limitations of the classes of methods, the pros and cons of commercial software and tips on how to maximize their usage. The focus is on helping participants to understand how to choose the appropriate modelling method for their particular need.
Arti Agrawal is an expert in numerical modelling methods for Photonics and has co-authored a text book “Finite element modelling methods for Photonics” published by Artech House as well as edited a book, “Recent Trends in Computational Photonics” published by Springer. She is currently an Associate Professor in the School of Data and Electrical Engineering at University of Technology Sydney. Her research interests are modelling of photonics devices: spiral fibres, solar cells, photonic crystals etc. and development of numerical methods. Arti is a Chartered Engineer and Chartered Physicist as well as a Senior Member of IEEE. She writes a blog http://artiagrawal.wordpress.com.
