Electrodynamic analysis of irregular waveguides and resonators containing nonlinear media
O. A. Golovanov
A computational algorithm has been proposed for solving diffraction problems for microwave waveguide devices containing nonlinear media. When the method of successive approximations is used, the original nonlinear boundary value problem for the Maxwell equations can be reduced to considering a series of linear boundary value problems which can be solved by the projection method. The stability of the computational algorithm has been considered for various iteration processes. The results of mathematical simulation have been presented for diffraction by a medium having a nonlinear electrical conductivity in a rectangular waveguide.
