Adaptive Numerical Methods for Problems of Integrated Optics
Cell Transformation, Viral
Receptors, Cell Surface
We review key algorithms for the numerical solution of waveguide eigenvalue problems and discuss their application to a typical simulation problem in integrated optics - the computation of eigenmodes of a MQW laser structure. Here we focus mainly on a self adaptive realization of the codes supplying solutions with prescribed accuracy in a CPU-time as short as possible. In a brief outlook we show how to extend these principles to solve general time-harmonic and time-dependent scattering problems in an adaptive finite element context.
