WAVESIM is a fast and accurate wave propagation solver. Whereas most available solvers use the popular Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) method WAVESIM uses a radically different approach for solving wave equations in large, complex structures, called the Modified Born Series (MBS). The method is based on the analytical Maxwell equations, requiring no finite difference approximations. Therefore, there are no accumulating systematic errors. When benchmarking against state-of-the-art FDTD optimized solver to simulate light propagation through a small structure (28 × 28 × 28 ≈ 2·104 cubic wavelengths), the prototype implementation of WAVESIM is faster by a factor of 2000 while using only 1% of the memory. Combining the benefits in speed and accuracy, our method has the potential to revolutionize the simulation of electromagnetic, acoustic, and seismic waves.

New Wavesim release

A new version of Wavesim was released on February 27 in github. The main feature of the new version is the use of  a CUDA based acceleration module (cumex), that can provide speed-up optimisation of up to x2 times.
