3 …is just a Taylor expansion for ANY function …always finds a second order accurate solution to the generic differential equation

4 Keep in mind that an n th order differential equation can always be reduced to n coupled equations of first order. Example 1: can be rewritten as the system: …with appropriate initial conditions.

13 Calculation of numerical derivatives However, in reality t cannot be zero, and so one incurs into an error: ?

14 Consider the Taylor Expansion: Then: Calculating the numerical derivative as: Implies an error of order t …

18 1.Increasing precision requires more information, storage 2. An n th order differential equation can always be reduced to n coupled equations of first order. 3. Calculating derivatives and integrating differential equations is more of an art than a science, and one uses whatever works. Care should be exercised when considering functions that vary rapidly in space or time. Ex.: In general,

31 For simplicity, lets assume only one transverse dimension: Assume… E(x,z) e un inviluppo che varia lentamente nello spazio rispetto a e nel tempo rispetto a /c. Apply the SVEA…

36 Ci sono altri modi di procedere che non richiedono unimpostazione cosi onerosa dal punto di vista del numero di varibili e vettori di cui tener conto. Ci occuperemo di metodi cosidetti spettrali.

37 How to calculate diffraction using the wave equation… Useful properties of the Fourier Transform: Derivatives… N is the number of points used to discretize the space x in units x.

38 Some Advantages of using Spectral (FT) methods (i)calculation of all kinds of derivatives is simple (ii)derivatives are extremely accurate (iii) simple algorithm Some Disadvantages (i)It is slower (ii)Functions should be very smooth (which usually are)

39 …is the solution in q-space. To find the solution in x-space, where things are observable, we need to take the inverse transform: Taking the FT of both sides with respect to x… And…

51 Removing the second order spatial derivative also means making the Paraxial Wave Approximation: the beam radius cannot be too small or inconsistencies with experimental observations may arisem since the wave tends to diffract very fast, contrary to expectations. This problem may be partially cured as follows:
