This book provides new perspectives on modern nanoscale problems where fundamental science meets technology and computer modeling. In addition to well-known techniques such as finite-difference schemes, finite element analysis and Ewald summation, the book presents a new finite-difference calculus of Flexible Local Approximation MEthods (FLAME) that qualitatively improves the numerical accuracy in a variety of problems. Application areas in the book include long-range particle interactions in homogeneous and heterogeneous media, electrostatics of colloidal systems, wave propagation in photonic crystals, photonic band structure, plasmon field enhancement, and metamaterials with backward waves and negative refraction. Utilizes a two-tiered style of exposition: intuitive explanation of key principles in the first tier and further technical details in the second. Bridges the gap between physics and engineering and computer science. Presents the fundamentals of computational methods, electromagnetic theory, colloidal systems and photonic structures together with applications. Covers ѵhot topics ̕in photonics, plasmonics, metamaterials.
