Computational Approaches for Plasmonics

ByM. A. Yurkin

In this chapter the problem of elastic light scattering, i.e. interaction

of electromagnetic waves with finite objects, is discussed. A detailed

overview of one of the widely used methods for plasmonics, the

discrete dipole approximation (DDA), is presented. This includes the theory of the DDA, practical recommendations for using available

computer codes, and discussion of the DDA accuracy.
