However, we still have to get Eq. 3b) into a time domain difference equation for implementation into FDTD. The first task is to shift from the frequency domain to the time domain. 4) σ E(ω). 5) and substitute Eq. 4) into Eq. 3b): D(ω) = εr E(ω) + Taking the first term into the time domain is not a problem because it is a simple multiplication. In the second term, Fourier theory tells us that 1/j ω in the frequency domain is integration in the time domain, so Eq.
