Divergence properties of the nonstandard finite difference methods

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Yee's classic algorithm was proved to be divergence-free in source-free regions. However, the divergence properties of the nonstandard finite difference (NSFD) methods have not been addressed. In this letter, we investigate the divergence nature of the NSFD (2,2) and (2,4) algorithms. Both the differential and integral forms of Gauss's Law are examined.
