Positioning itself at the common boundaries of several disciplines, this work provides new perspectives on modern nanoscale problems where fundamental science meets technology and computer modeling. In addition to well-known computational techniques such as finite-difference schemes and Ewald summation, the book presents a new finite-difference calculus of Flexible Local Approximation Methods (FLAME) that qualitatively improves the numerical accuracy in a variety of problems.
Igor Tsukerman is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Akron, Ohio, where he has been a faculty member since 1995. His research is focused on the simulation of nanoscale systems, applied electromagnetics and photonics, plasmonics, computational methods, and nonlocal homogenization of materials. He teaches a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses (Signals & Systems, Circuits, Electromagnetic Fields, Digital Signal Processing, Random Signal Analysis, Simulation of Nanoscale Systems, and others). Tsukerman has approximately 150 refereed publications, has authored a monograph (Computational Methods for Nanoscale Applications: Particles, Plasmons and Waves, Springer 2008) and co-edited a book (Plasmonics and Plasmonic Metamaterials: Analysis and Applications, World Scientific, 2011).
