A Generalized Finite-Difference Time Domain Method for Solving the Complex Ginzburg-Landau Equation

Description :  

In collaboration with NASA-GSFC, the investigators` goal for this research is to apply a generalized Finite-Difference Time-Domain (G-FDTD) method for solving the Ginzburg-Landau equation, a generalized nonlinear Schrodinger equation. The objective of the researchers is to develop a G-FDTD method for utilization in simulating soliton propagation in nonlinear-dispersive media. Those applications may potentially aid satellite and telescope research at NASA, which utilizes soliton phenomena in physics and engineering due to their effective data transmission over long distances.
