We focus on theory and numerics of Maxwell equations for the approximation of photonic bandstructures or waveguides.

Contents: The Maxwell system, aspects of modeling. Boundary and interface conditions. Analytical tools. The curl curl source problem. The curl curl eigenvalue problem. Finite element methods for the Maxwell equations. Bandstructure computations, simulation and optimisation of waveguides.

Requirements: Basic lectures in Partial Differential Equations and Numerical Methods of Partial Differential Equations.
