Computed surface electric currents induced on a prototype military jet fighter plane by a radar beam at 100 MHz. The incident plane wave propagates from left to right head-on to the airplane. The surface currents re-emit electromagnetic energy which can be used to create RCS plots .
A single FDTD cell

E(n) = D1H(n-1/2) + G1E(n-1)
H(n+1/2) = D2E(n) + G2H(n-1/2)
where Q represents the present state.
where vi are the eigenvectors and λiare eigenvalues of A.
