finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) electromagnetic simulations

Meep is a free finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulation software package developed at MIT to model electromagnetic systems. It supports distributed-memory parallelism, dispersive and nonlinear materials, PML absorbing boundaries, 1d/2d/3d/cylindrical problems, and arbitrary material and source geometries. It is completely scriptable via either C++ or a Scheme (GNU Guile) interface.
