Just curious if someone has come across a package where I can simply solve the basic maxwell equations(just the curl equations). I'm just interested in solving it on a 2-d plate out of interest. Anyone come across such a package in their travels?

Thanks

  • $\begingroup$ I don't know what you're familiarity with python is, but it really wouldn't be all that horrible to code you're own numerical solver for Maxwell's equations if you use the Finite Element Method $\endgroup$ – D. W. Apr 17 '16 at 23:43

You mean "numerically solve", right? In this case I would suggest you to give FiPy an earnest shot. It's reasonably simple and fairly well documented. It may be the answer to your problem.

PS: FiPy is based on the Finite Volume Method (FVM).
