Abstract

Many materials in the nature or fabricated in laboratories exhibit nonlinear behavior where the permittivity and/or permeability is a function of the magnitude of the electric or magnetic field intensity. Such nonlinearity results in a nonlinear system of Maxwell's equations, which are more challenging to solve. Generally speaking, there are two kinds of methods commonly adopted to solve nonlinear problems. The first kind of methods solves the linearized versions of the original problems, while the second kind of methods deals with the nonlinear problems directly. Although more difficult to solve with a high efficiency, the second kind of methods is more desirable in order to capture the nonlinear phenomenon more accurately.
