TITLE: An Omni-directional Curl Operator and the IVMCEM Method
I describe the omni-directional curl operator and the IVMCEM method (a fully discrete computational electromagnetic time-domain solver). The spatial methodology I employ decomposes a vector field into six components at every node within an associated FCC grid, and provides an algorithm whereby the vector calculus curl is obtained (I now refer to this curl algorithm as the omni-directional curl operator).
