Alternating Implicit Block FDTD Method For Scalar Wave Equation
In this paper, an alternating implicit block method for
solving two dimensional scalar wave equation is presented. The
new method consist of two stages for each time step implemented
in alternating directions which are very simple in computation. To
increase the speed of computation, a group of adjacent points is
computed simultaneously. It is shown that the presented method
increase the maximum time step size and more accurate than the
conventional finite difference time domain (FDTD) method and other
existing method of natural ordering.
